Holiday Tags - Day 7

Well, this is it - my last tag (well, last tag that I've made through December 4th).  I had one more remaining blank tag laying on my work table and was wondering what to do with it.  I knew I had a poinsettia stamp that I hadn't used...and also knew that the color pink was missing from my previous tags....so I started with that.
I stamped the poinsettia out twice in Memento ink and cut out some layers.  I stamped leaves from PTI's All About You set and cut those out. Next I covered the tag in Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and stamped a Hero Arts swirl with Peeled Paint.  I added glossy accents over the swirl lines.

I didn't just want to add glitter to the center of the poinsettia, so I got out my beads and decided to use embroidery floss and sew the beads on.  I really love how it came out.

Here's a super close shot:
I used muted green beads around the edges and one clear green in the center.  I finished off the poinsettia with some perfect pearls for some shine.

I added a To/From circle and my final tag was done!!

I had so much fun making these tags! Now I'm going to have to step up my wrapping of gifts to match these tags!! (or better yet, I will buy some plain wrapping paper so the tags stand out!!)

By the way - I don't think I mentioned that all of my tags were cut from a Sizzix die cut.

Hope you're having a great day!!

Maria.....I think you should be super proud of yourself as all of the tags are gorgeous. They're so pretty I'd hate to even give them away!
Love this one with the pink poinsettia. Those beads in the center are just lovely.
Great job.

Wow - you go girl! I am really loving checking out your tags this week. I think this one is my fav. Maybe because of the color combo or that wonderful,layered poinsettia.

I would go with toned-down wrap so that these tags totally shine.

Have a great week end!
