I used Close To My Heart's wonderful cardstock in Ponderosa Pine to cut the tag. I trimmed it with a bit of paper from the fabulous, soon to be released CTMH Mistletoe pack, the berries were enhanced with a bit of red stickles. For the curly stitch and the straight stitches, I used CTMH stamps from the "Togetherness" set and Martha Stewart gold pigment ink, embossed with gold embossing powder. The beautiful ornament comes from the soon to be released CTMH "All The Best" stamp set. I again used the same gold ink and powder on CTMH Holiday Red cardstock. I crowned it with a red rhinestone from my stash. The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped it with Versamark and used red embossing powder-"All The Best" actually shows up better in person.
The final touch was to press the piece of colonial white ribbon in gold ink and tie a knot! All the Christmas CTMH papers and stamps will be available to customers starting Sept. 1st and can be purchased on my website: http://belindak.myctmh.com
