On The Fifth Day of Christmas The Queen Gave To Me...

One crystal chandelier!!! (to the tune of...5 GOLDEN RINGSSSSSSS!!!!) of my VERY first QKD stamps!! I've used it over and over in SO many projects!!!

This time it's on my 5th tag, a Christmas tag, and reminds me of a warm and cozy house filled with guests, friends and family alike all celebrating in the spirit of the holidays!!!

Using my Cricut to cut the tag plus insert. I adhered a piece of sheer gold ribbon along with green ric rac on the tag itself. I, then, stitched the insert with bright red thread to the tag. I then cut some of last year's SU! Christmas DP and ran it through my printer to insert the FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA. As another layer before the main focus panel....which is the golden chandelier!
I inked it in both gold and olive green pigment ink and heat embossed it. Using the flip side of the SU! paper I ran it through my Cricut again and cut the exact same tag only smaller 2.75". Plus the insert. I inked the edges of the outer circle so it would stand out better and stitched around the outside. I JUST got these gorgeous, fabric brads at Michael's the other day and they've been SCREAMING to use on this project!!

I added one brad, colored in the bulbs and some of the crystals with my gold paint pen, added some beautiful 5/8" PTI - Pure Poppy Ribbon and voila!!! Tag number 5!!
