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

Amazing detail on this Tracy. The tree is spectacular and adds some lovely texture, and I love that the 'jelly like' 25 has been cut and glossed so carefully it looks as though this was done on the original tag rather than having been added. Love it. Hugs, Buttons x
