Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - Tags

I made these Christmas tags for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop  which calls for making at least 5 tags.  I used some very nontraditional colors - dark gray, black and pearly white.  To make my tags, I used Smokey Shadow cardstock and my new favorite stamp set, Meadow Greens. I think it is very versatile - not just for spring.  "Peace" and the leaf are both from that set.  I cut out the tags using the biggest die from the Angled Labels Die Collection.

I embossed the leaf with a glittery embossing powder called Starry Night.  It was so glittery, the darn thing was hard to photograph.  I must have taken 20 pics before I got something that wasn't a blob of sparkle. Lol.

I used Perfect Pearls for the sentiment.  I think that made it pop out despite the sparkle on the leaf.  The ribbon is from American Crafts.

Thank you for looking!

Look at the glitter!
