Christmas Tag

Hello there TJ Friends from Kathie McGuire. I hope my Christmas tag project will inspire you to create one for yourself or someone else on your holiday list.

My tag uses the technique "Cuttlebug Glow" from the 10/07 TJ Newsletter. It features the Cloisonne Christmas Trees. I stamped them onto maroon card stock and embossed them with PSX Brass Embossing Powder. I loved being able to cut them out in seconds with the coordinating Christmas Tree Metal Dies. Last, I added some glitz with Stickles Gold.

The "snow" is white Flower Soft. At the top of the tag, please notice the Strong Stamps Triangle stamp from the Cloisonne Accents stamp set. When I had it securely in place, I used a Crop-A-Dile to set a brass eyelet to thread the fibers through. The last elements are a bit of gold cord and a brass snowflake from a pile of Christmas doo-dads in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today. Merry Christmas everybody!!
