Penny Black 5th Tag of Christmas

I have a couple of tags to make for gifts both to be delivered after the holidays when I have time to visit.  I have watched the videos and looked at the tags of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas there were a couple I thought I could improvise on. I embossed in white on shiny paper then sponged Fire Brick distress ink on it. I then pulled out the sizzlets little leaves and punched a few both in green and gold. It was a minor miracle I didn’t scrap the idea as I tried to glue these little babies in a laurel wreath pattern, but I managed. A whisper white taffeta bow to the top, as everyone knows mistakes happen and I punched too large a hole at the top of my “hand made” tag, so I punched two circles adhered them over the larger hole and punched a new one. Then added the red sheer ribbon along with the white taffeta ribbon.  Now to enter this in the “create a tag” challenge I found at Penny Black Saturday I stamped, coloured with Spica glitter pens and cut it out then popped it up on a couple of dimensionals.

You still have time to enter a tag in the challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog  as they are taking a break until January 7, 2012.  Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my first attempt at a Tim Holtz creation with a twist. I would also like to wish you the Happiest of Christmases and the most prosperous New Year.
