25 Days of Christmas Tags CASE

My blog feed is exploding with Christmas tag inspiration, thanks to Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags hop.  Usually the days around here are so full that I just get to look in awe.  Today, however, I got to play!  Here's my tag:

 It was inspired by designer Flora Monika Farkas on day 5.  I loved the look of her plaid on both the tag and the ribbon.  She also stamped her Christmas tree directly on her tag so I was challenged to stamp directly on the tag too.  The berry clusters in the front, however, were stamped separately and pieced.
Stamps:  PTI Spruce and Sprigs, PTI Christmas Cheer
Dies:  PTI Christmas Cheer, Poppy Stamps Stitched Main Street Tags, MFT Tag Builder Blueprint 4
Ink:  PTI Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Prairie Grass
Paper:  Southfield Tartan Craft Papers
Other:  SSS Fine Detail Embossing Powder, Distress Marker Gathered Twigs, ribbon snippets of unknown origin
I hope you have the chance to join in on the fun over at Tracey's blog.  It's day 14, so there's still time!  I'm hoping to give it another go!


Thanks for coming over to visit!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
