Christmas Wishes

Time for my last creation in this set using Teresa Collins CHRISTMAS COTTAGE designer pad and coordinating STAMP SET from The Stamp Attic.
I decided on a Christmas tag this time around to coordinate with all the cards I have made during the past few weeks using the CHRISTMAS COTTAGE products. The tag has been cut from cream card using the Tag and Bookplate die. I then cut 25 from the top of my tag using the Cargo Stencil Number Set.
The next step was to add some texture and dimension to my tag which I added using the Snowflurries Texture Fade. The background was then coloured with aged mahogany Distress Ink, adding gold Paint Dabber to the raised areas with my finger. I added a piece of coordinated Bazzill card to the back of my tag so that the numbers were a little more prominent.
I added some coordinated ribbon to the top of my tag along with two Baubles attached with jump rings for further interest and dimension. I cut JOY from white card using the Alphabetical Strip Die, colouring with gold Paint Dabber.
I cut my tree and pot from mountboard added VersaMark ink to each and then sprinkled with Stampendous Frantage Shabby White Embossing Enamel, adding two layers. I then inked the stamp from Teresa Collins using maroon archival ink and stamped into the hot enamel. For a professional finish I added gold Paint Dabber to the edges of my pot and tree. For further interest and dimension I also added Christmas Dew Drops to the bottom and top corners of my tag.
To complete I added Glossy Accents to the 25, giving a wonderful glossy finish and a further texture to my tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
