Holly Days

Today's three tags feature the amazing "Art Philosophy" Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart. The grey decorative layer for this ornament tag was cut using the Cricut, then mounted on foam tape to the same basic shape, cut in white. "Sparkles" jewels and dabs of Liquid Pearl add were all that was needed to finish it off. And the hanging twine in Stone, from the Twinery, of course.
I was trying for an earthy look here, with the kraft-paper card and attempt at a paper pine cone! I used one of the 3D shapes on the Cricut cartridge which forms a rose. I added some Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique to suggest snow, some pine bough paper from Paper Wishes, and more Twine, this time "Peapod."
This final tag features the beautiful "Remarkable Wreath" stamp from Close to My Heart. The set includes the branches, and a choice of ways to decorate it, with berries, leaves, and flowers. There are also three different banners to stamp. I cut and lifted the banner letters with a craft knife, for added dimension. The ornament shape was also cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
Hope your holiday preparations are going well!
