houston, we have a label!

a christmas card mailing label, that is.

i confess that i do tend to obsess a bit over my holiday labels; i like them to be as cool as the cards inside. even so, i'm not sure i've ever spent this much time on one 3 x 4" project in my entire life...mostly because i just could not commit to a single idea. then i saw this gorgeous layout in the designer digitals gallery, and i realized that thanks to all of the 25 cent xmas specials DD has had this month, i actually owned a bunch of the same stuff the artist used. then it all sort of came together in a rush.

(patterned paper, circle tag, red floral: gabriella kit, laura skathi, funky playground; ledger paper: ledger grids #1, katie pertiet, designer digitals; gingham ribbon: indian summer nights kit, marci reckinger, funky playground; lace, tag ribbon: betsy's room kit, corina nelson, funky playground; xmas tree: collaged santa trees #1, katie pertiet, designer digitals; bread tag & staples: groceria words holiday: katie pertiet, designer digitals; word stickers: christmas cut-ups: katie pertiet, designer digitals; frame: notebook edged frames: katie pertiet, designer digitals; santa bingo: holida game cards: katie pertiet, designer digitals; initial b & text flower: from my bookshelf, katie pertiet, designer digitals; dangly tiny tag: winter park, katie pertiet, designer digitals; green mesh: bad boys kit, gretchen thomas, designer digitals; reindeer: jolly friends stickers #1, mindy terasawa, designer digitals; font: ck typewriter, scrap-n-fonts)

wouldja believe there are 25 products on this baby?! yeah, it turns out no matter whether i am using physical or virtual products, i like a lot of layers. A LOT of layers! well, at least i am consistent, eh?! :)
