May Your Days Be Merry & Bright

Today's card features a tag created for Day 1 of Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015. Now that is a mouthful of challenge! I have my tag placed on a card because I need all the Christmas cards I can get right now. I actually forgot and had this baby glued down before I thought to take a photo of the tag by itself. I was inspired by Carolyn Peeler's tag which featured embossing and watercolors as well as trees.

I failed to write down the inks I used to watercolor piece of Ranger Distress Watercolor cardstock but I know that they were  Ranger Distress inks. Once dried I cut out a tag with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 3 die set. I stamped the two graphic trees from the Hero Arts Joy to the World set with Versamark ink and heat embossed both with Citrron powder with a bit of masking in between. I then stamped the sentiment at the top and heat embossed with Glacier powder. I decorated the trees with Kaisercraft jewels in pink and aqua. I used the same tag die to cut another tag from Berrylicious cardstock and then tied them together with Honeydew twine.  I stamped two of the solid stars from the same stamp set directly onto the card base and also heat embossed them before attaching the tag set.

Products: Hero Arts stamps, Ranger Distress Watercolor cs, MFT and PTI cs, The Twinery twine, Kaisercraft jewels, Recollections embossing powders, Pretty Pink Posh die, Versamark ink, Ranger Distress inks
