It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. We all need tags for our Christmas gifts, so this week we want you to create a Christmas Tag for this challenge. Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the information about the challenge and see what the prize will be for the winner this week.
I used the Tim Holtz "Tag & Bookplates" die to die cut my tag. I love having this die because it makes it so easy to die cut any color tag you need. There are also two different Bookplates on this die. To give the tag background texture, I used the eBosser "Delicate Dots" embossing folder. The poinsettia was die cut using the Tim Holtz "Tattered Poinsettia" die. I only used the two smallest of the three poinsettia flowers for this tag. To give the flower some "glitz" I used Glue N' Seal and sprinkled on "Twinklets Diamond Dust". This is a chunky glitter and I really love it on the flower petals. In the center of the flowers I added white pearls.
The beautiful design behind the poinsettia are two of the Spellbinders "Flourish Trim" die cuts. They were glued to the tag with the straight edges together. Another "Flourish Trim" was die cut for the top edge. It was a little longer than I wanted it, so I used scissors to trim part of the flourish off on each end. A piece of white card stock was attached to the back of the navy blue tag. Kaiser Craft pearls were added to the corners, on the flourish and in the flower center. A white organdy bow was made with a "Bow Easy" and attached with a glue dot.
I hope you will join us this week. Joan and I love seeing all your beautiful entries.
