Poppystamps: 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Morning, friends!  I'm so excited to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, with Poppystamps, this year!  This has always been a favorite event of mine to follow, even when I couldn't find the time to participate creatively.  So, I hope you'll clear some room on your busy calendars to join in the fun this year by checking out all the amazing, holiday, tag inspiration from a number of talented designers in the industry.  Maybe you'll find yourself inspired to get those holiday tags made before the hustle and bustle of the season even begins; and maybe, just maybe, those inspired tags will reward you with some big prizes ;).  Enjoy!
I started this tag by die-cutting the Merry Christmas Circle Frame from Riding Hood Red cardstock and backing it with that fabulous, white, glitter paper.  I hope you can see that shimmer and shine.
The "to one and all" phrase was white-embossed on a hand-cut, Basic Black cardstock banner and popped up, with foam tape, just below the "Merry Christmas" sentiment, which was given a double dose of texture and shine with Glossy Accents.
A length of Baker's Twine was strung through a punched circle and embellished with double, white, seam binding ribbon and gingham bows, as well as a die-cut, from a red, floral print, Holiday Poinsettia, whose layers were separated with foam tape.  A lone pearl, to anchor the center of that holiday bloom, completes the look.
To find out how you can be in the running to win a heap of fabulous prizes from these truly amazing sponsors, be sure to stop by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Main Post and Linkup.
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!  Happy early, Christmas preparations!
