I signed up for two spots on the annual Christmas tag swap over at Stampin' Addicts, and this weekend I got the second tag finished. It's based on several ideas I've seen in the past week or so. The first idea came from this poinsettia card I spotted on Vicki's blog. She saw it on Connie's blog, which inspired her. Vicki's inspired me. I liked how well the Vintage Wall embossing folder went with the poinsettia, and it made me remember a cool technique I saw last weekend on Diana's blog, using the same embossing folder, which she called bisque pottery. Diana has a great video showing how to do this technique, which involves using a brayer on one side of an embossing folder to add ink on the non-embossed parts of the card stock. Such a cool technique, and it was just what I needed for my tag. The DSP is Deck the Halls and the sentiment stamp is from the set All Holidays. I used one of the larger antique brads for the center of the poinsettia. The antique whitewashed one really goes along well with the bisque pottery look, but I only had seven of those left, so I had to use two of the other larger antique brads, which also look good. I can't wait to see what I get in return!
