Christmas Tag and PB Card

Hello All!
I've been crafting up some tags this week for my hubby's gift baskets.  He needs 30 of them, so I've been busy with those.

Here's one of the tags I made using some patterned paper:
Not much to explain about the tag except it looks better in person (LOL)
I'll enter this in the Stamping Royalty #152 Tag Challenge

I also made a card following the Penny Black Cute 2 Elegant sketch:


I'm embarrassed to say how long this CAS card took me!  I embossed the PB "Joy" stamp with green ink and clear powder.  Then embossed PB background with white powder.  I colored it in with Distress Markers and after that was all done - I added some perfect pearls to get a nice shine.  And...like the tag above - it looks better in person!  Oh well.......someday I'll take better pictures!

Hope you have a terrific day!!!

Thanks for your visit!

That tag is so rich - the papers are just fab. Your card is very elegant. Sometimes CAS cards can give more pain and take a great deal of effort from us... But it turned out real nice.

30 gift baskets? You better get busy if you are making tags for all of them! I like the black, red and white though, it looks elegant but a bit whimsical.

Maria it takes a lot of thought and creativity to keep a design simple and have the impact be TREMENDOUS! You did it in spades with both of these designs!

LOL! CAS cards always take me longer than other ones. The effort was well worth it. I love your clean design with the touch of texture.
