Feminine Christmas Tag - Day 9

Ellen Hutson's The CLASSroom has such gorgeous inspiration for it's 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist.  Day 9, with Paula Cheney is such girly goodness.  Here is her tag:

And my version:

Started with an ivory die cut tag and smeared it in distress inks.  After it dried, embossed it with an embossing folder and then painted some of the raised areas with Perfect Pearls gold and water.  I didn't have a wreath die, so I die cut a ring using 2 sizes of circles and glued the newsprint to some grunge board and die cut some leaves.  Cut the leaves apart and arranged on the circle to make the wreath.  Added a little sponging with Distress Ink and then rubbed on some Distressed Stickles in Worn Lipstick.  Made the bow as per her instructions.  Punched the little branches out of kraft cardstock, colored with Distress Stain in Tarnished Brass then added Stickles in Old Paper.  Stamped the sentiments in Memento Rich Cocoa on ivory cs, die cut and adhered to the tag.  Added pink pearls and tied with twine.
Thanks for looking!

  1. You did an amazing job making such a product and tool heavy card with the things you had on hand.

    Very inspiring and brilliantly executed.
