Tag From Left-Overs

Left-overs aren't just for dinner anymore!  I won't admit to how many paper scraps I keep, but I've gotten better at tossing the itsy bits into the recycle bin.  I cut the rectangular aperture from this card, and that left-over rectangle was perfect for a Christmas tag for Joan's weekly tag challenge.  I trimmed all the way around with deckle edge scissors, cutting the upper corners off as well.  I used some of the same felt poinsettias I used on the card and added Stickles and Dew Drops to them.  I love this owl image by Inkadinkado.  I stamped it with Versamark and embossed with red glitter EP with a little gold EP added.  It doesn't look very good in the picture, but IRL it's really pretty!  I dyed and wadded some seam binding and using it for the hanger.

What a beautiful tag Nancy. I agree that is a pretty owl image. I never think to emboss in red and it is so pretty. I also like your seam binding for the hanger. Thanks for joining us again in the Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens.
