A Christmas tag....

.....for my second make for the Country View Crafts Challenge
Lots of sparkle and glitter on this one! Mind you it doesn't show that well in the photo. To create the background of the tag I blended some Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Pumice Stone, Gathered Twigs) onto a plain white tag then using the Gothic layering stencil from Tim Holtz I put on some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture paste.
To create the stocking I cut it our of white card using the Tim Holtz stocking die then embossed the main bit using a holly Embossalicious embossing folder but you could use any festive embossing folder you have in your stash. Then coloured all the pieces with distress ink, lightly applied a bit of sparkle paste over the raised embossed areas and then glued all the pieces together.
For the Poinsettia I used the new Sue Wilson Classic Poinsettia die, cut it in white, coloured with distress ink, glued it together and added a few specks of glitter and a few crystal beads for the centre. Also cut a few strands of ivy using the Die'sire ivy strand die.....again any poinsettia/foliage dies would work exactly the same.
The numbers were cut using Tim Holtz's movers and shapers mini set, coloured with a bit of ink and then covered with glossy accents.
Once everything was dry I stuck it all together and added some ribbon and a sentiment.
