Christmas Tag

The festive season is fast approaching & I took it literally to make this tag.. having incorporated "bling" in all form I could muster..
3D glitter, glitter embossing,  brush glitter, glitter pen, pearls..  u name it :D
But I have tried to keep it as CAS as possible as that's my favourite style :)
Here it is. .


I've cut the tag from red cardstock, having Ranger craft tag as template.. saves the trouble of all the measurements which am always lazy about ;)

I've white embossed the snowflakes & sentiment from "Noel" stampset.

*TIPS* alert..! am new to heat embossing & I always mess up coz I was unable to clear off the excess powder properly... So I tried something & it worked wonders :)
Just try rubbing the surface to be embossed, with a completely DRY natural hair brush.. rubbing fast like this is another way to remove the static electricity I guess.. I often hear this term in most video tutorials :D
yes I did achieve better results after this  !!

ornaments are made from handmade paper stuck on cardstock,  hand drawn & fussy cut. . same goes for the holly leaves..

The metal string was difficult to attach.. so I made it like a hook & stuck it with tape on the back as well as the end at the front.. The ornament hides it all :)
i made the metal bow separately& stuck with double sided thin adhesive tape..

I can't remember what all I did with the glitter part coz there was way too many & absolutely in contrast to what I usually do, keeping it minimal :)
I guess it doesn't show up well in the pic though..
white dots on the bg with white gel pen.. golden trim for the bow :) ornaments stuck with foam squares for dimension :)
