Sneak Peek Poinsettia Tag

Hello everyone!
Today I'm so excited to be sharing a sneak peek with your of one of the fantastic new sets to be released Nov 1 by Our Daily Bread designs! This is the Poinsettia Tag set and also the Die Cut custom made for these tags (oops, did I spill the beans with that little plural? LOL) Anyway... the dies are a wonderful way to make a tedious job short! I plan on making ALL my tags this Christmas, and as you can see, I made this card using a tag for the focal point. I was going for a tag within a tag look for this one. I used today's SCS Sketch challenge and it just kind of developed as I went. Ever have that happen?

My tag is stamped with Memento and colored with Copics, and I did stamp a second so I could cut out and pop up some of the poinsettia petals. I highlighted with a Spica yellow pen for the centers and a gold gel pen for the vines. I matted my tag and mounted inside a Nellies Multi Scalloped frame. The embossed panel is Sizzix Sugar and sponged with T Holtz Fired Brick. I added an EK Success bracket punched piece to create the effect of the outter envelope, some sheer olive ribbon and pearls from ACMoore. The base is Bazzill and the DP is BasicGrey Jovial.

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! Be sure to be back Nov. 1 for the ODBD New Release Blog Hop!

Dear Grace~

This is so bright and colorful! I love it! I love how many layers you have on this, and how they are all different prints. I need to save this as a sample of laying for me!

I love the poinsettia. It looks wonderful on that tag! Who ever receives this for the Holidays, is going to be a Happy Camper!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
