BBTB2; Pink/Gold Holiday & 12 Days of Christmas Tags 2019; Day Seven

The current challenge at the Bitten By The Bug challenge blog is; Pink/Gold Holiday.

So to stick to my 12 Days of Christmas Tags 2019 series, I chose to use my Cricut to create some gold/pink trees on some gift tags!

I created my own trees using the shapes that are available for free in Design Space. Check out this video to see how I use the slice, weld, and group tools to create these cool trees.

The video doesn't get into too many details on the tags so here's the scoop:
I used pink cardstock for the 2x4 tag bases. I added a strip of gold pattern paper on the bottom of each tag before spritzing each one with Heidi Swapp gold glimmer spray. Once those dried, I punched 1/2" circles from the gold glitter paper I used for the tree outlines (from the design I created) cut with the Cricut, folded them in half and adhered to each tag top.

The Cricut was used to cut the trees. Gold glitter paper was used for the outlines and some pink patterned paper was used for the tree bases. I don't know if these photos do these tags any justice...they are gorgeous in person!
