Christmas Tags

Hello! I hope everyone is staying warm, it got very cold in WNC today.  Brrrr! I have a couple tags I made for gifts to share today.  One is cut from a reject piece that was left over from when I made THIS card. The other was just sort of experimental but turned out rather lovely. :)


For the tag on the left I captured the snow dots background stamp under clear embossing of the starburst background.  Then I applied distress ink to the not embossed areas.  The wood veneer trees I colored with metallic distress stains (antique bronze on large tree and tarnished brass for small tree).  Over top of the stain I put copper stickles for the big tree & cinnamon stickles for the small one. And finally I finished it off with some dots of platinum stickles and coppery tinsel twine.

The tag on the right I die cut from pattern paper and inked with festive berries distress ink.  I then stamped the flourish tree with tarnished brass & brushed pewter.  The wood veneer snowflakes are colored with brushed pewter stain and then a layer of silver stickles.  I finished it off applying some silver stickles around the edges and into the center some using my finger and then some silver tinsel twine.

Thanks for stopping by today!
