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.
