Merry Christmas with Cheery Lynn Designs


Sandy here with you, filling in again for Alison but I ran out of time with all the Thanksgiving festivities.  So I thought I would share a holiday tag I made a few months back with Cheery Lynn Designs dies and Distress ink.  I began with a piece of Cryogen metallic white paper, using my Cheery Lynn Designs Poinsettia embossing plate to add the embossed pattern.  I sponged Distress ink heavily along the edges and then lightly across the rest of the tag.  It really makes the embossed pattern stand out.  Using my Poinsettia Strip die, I created the beautiful flowers.  I just bend the petals down along the embossed line for dimension then stagger and stack them. 


To complete my tag, I added a Holly Lace Flourish for some greenery, the larger die from the Colonial Lamp Post set of 2, and the smaller die from the Merry Christmas set of 2 (I trimmed off the snowflakes).
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out this week's Non -traditional Christmas colors challenge for a chance to win a $20 credit to the Cheery Lynn Designs store.
