I still had my Distress ink laying out and decided to make another tag; this one for Christmas. I began with a piece of Cryogen metallic white paper using my Cheery Lynn Designs Poinsettia embossing plate to add the embossed pattern. I added Distress ink heavily along the edges and then lightly across the rest of the tag. It really makes the embossed pattern stand out. Cheery Lynn released a new die this month called Poinsettia Strip. It cuts 2 large, 2 medium and 2 small petals in one pass through your die cut machine; this will create two flowers like the ones I made. And they are just beautiful. I just bend the petals down along the embossed line for dimension then stagger and stack them.
To complete my tag, I added a Holly Lace Flourish for some greenery, the larger die from the Colonial Lamp Post set of 2, and the smaller die from the Merry Christmas set of 2 (I trimmed off the snowflakes).
