Rustic Poinsettia Tag

Today I want to share a tag I made for this week's challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such: Christmas Tags.

I used a lovely pre-printed tag from Fancy Pants Designs' Burlaps and Bouquets collection. I picked the burned red and beige from the tag and added green as a third color, to create a nice, earthy combination. I used beige cardstock for the die cuts entirely and colored them with ink afterwards, that way I could have a hint of beige everywhere.


Main Supplies
Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia
Spellbinders New Fancy Label Tags One
Mini Ink Blending Tool
1/2" Scor-Tape 
Baby Pearls - LeCreme 

I die cut two small poinsettias, and cut some petals from a smaller flower for the leaves too, since the original leaf die was too large to fit the small tag. I colored the poinsettias with Barn Door distress ink and the leaves with Peeled Paint distress ink.

I die cut two coordinating labels with the new Spellbinders Fancy Label Tags One. I stenciled the labels with Peeled Paint distress ink, but I applied much less ink to the smaller one. Finally I stamped a sentiment from the new Our Daily Bread Designs' Silk Stars stamp set using Crafter's Ink in Bark. Half a dozen Baby Pearls finished the design, giving the flowers a delicate touch to contrast their rustic look!

I love how the tag turned out. It will certainly be added to a Christmas gift this year!
