Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 24 & full reveal

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.)

And today, I'm sharing the last tag... Day 24, as well as all of the tags displayed on the window.

For my tag, I die-cut some gorgeous Teresa Collins patterned paper using
my PTI Shaker Shapes: Star dies.


I inked the smaller gold star with Delicata Golden Glitz ink.
The numbers were diecut using PTI's Book Print Number dies.

For my coordinating tag, I used the same patterned paper.
I used the same star dies, too, and impressed the patterned paper with them.


Then I die-cut three "shine" words, two from white cardstock and the
third from some white cardstock that I inked up using Delicata Golden Glitz ink.
I adhered these together and then to my card.
The sentiment is from PTI's Sparkle & Shine: Holiday Additions stamp set.

And, now that I've shared all 24 tags, I wanted to show you how they look all together
on the old window I've hung them on...


Thanks for looking!
