A Christmas Tag.....

Good morning everyone!  Welcome to a rainy Monday here in East Tennessee.  We welcome the rain because we are getting very dry.  This morning I'm here to share with you a Christmas tag I made using my Heartfelt Creations stamps.

 
Pretty neat, huh?  And below is a close up of the flower. If you look very close, you can see the stamping done on the flower.  When I sprayed it with shimmer spray, it sort of covered the stamping.
 

For this tag I used HCPC 3428 Script Christmas Tree PreCut Set and the HCPC 3415 Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set. 

I stamped the images and then cut out.  Once this was done, I shaped the petals and sprayed them with shimmer spray.  When it was dry I glued all the pieces together to make the beautiful flower.  A gold pearl to the center is just the finishing touch.  I cut out a Spellbinders die and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss dots embossing folder.My ribbon is just some seam binding that I always have on hand.  This tag was  inspired by a tag made by Linda Duke.  I have followed Linda for years; in fact she is one of the first two artists I  began my blogging life with.  The other was Sherry Cheever.  Sherry has always inspired me to add a little grunge to my elegant!

So there you have it.  My new favorite Christmas tag and my two favorite artists.  I hope your Monday is a good one.  What's that old Song...Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down.

Beautiful tag - I like the effect of the colours of the flower and leaves against the crisp whiteness of the tag. Elizabeth x
