Christmas Tag #6

Today I have another tag for the challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This one was created with the Marianne Design (DS0911) embossing folder for the embossed background.  The tag was die cut using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Tag die.  The embossed designed was backed with shiny silver paper.  The poinsettia was created with the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies.  Behind the poinsettia I have layered the Memory Box Bianca Snowflake which was die cut using silver card stock. On top of that, a black Memory Box "LaRue Flourish" was added. In the center of the poinsettia, I added a silver punched stamen which was punched with the Punch Bunch "Sky Snowflake".  Up on the left hand corner I added a  Marianne Designs Leafy Flourish (LR0192) and stamped "Noel" at the base of it.  Up on the right hand corner I added a small piece of the "Poppy Stamps, "Pine Tree Border" that was die cut using white card stock.  A large silver and black button from my stash was added below the poinsettia.  The border around the tag was punched using the Martha Stewart "Swirling Lace" punches.  To complete my white, black and silver tag, I added black ribbon and silver cord for the hanger.

Have you joined us yet in the challenge at Joan's Gardens?  The challenge this week is to create a Christmas Tag and anything goes.  You can read all the information about the challenge at Joan's Gardens.  Joan and I love seeing your entries in our challenges.  Someone will win a prize, plus the winner will be entered into the drawing for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens that will be given away later this month.  

 Memory Box Bianca Snowflake Die.  I have die cut one and placed it on the right side of this picture.  It is a very delicate snow and it does pop right out of the die.

 This is the Poppy Stamps Pine Tree Border.  I have included a punched tree border  at the bottom of this picture.  These are really cute little trees that make a great border.  I cut off just a few trees to add to my tag.

The products I use can can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  I want to let you know that Joan has had many orders for Memory Box products and due to the volume, these products are kind of slow being shipped out to her.  She will be filling your orders and shipping them out just as soon as the product arrives.

Also - I have had some emails from you asking if these dies release the die cut easily.  I want to let you know that I have not had any problems with them releasing - in fact many times they fall out as soon as they are die cut.  This is really nice when you are working with some of the delicate designs such as the "LaRue Flourish.   I really love working with them.
