Candle Tag

While surfing the web I found this really cute tag and of course I thought I would try to copy it.  Well, I was not very successful.  Though I'm ok with how this one turned out, it's nothing like the beautiful one I found here.  Don't go look at it until you are done reading my post.  If you do, I know you won't be back to finish!!! LOL  

My plan for this was to make a "To and From" tag but because my tag was much smaller (obviously) than the original one I didn't have room for any words.  

I can always slip a little piece of paper under that slit below the hole on the top of the card or I can write on the back.  So it can still be used for a tag.

I used Real Red card stock for the background.  On top of that I used the  Elements of Style stamp set for the background.  I first stamped using VersaMark and then heat set the white embossing powder.  Then I stamped the background with the same image using Soft Suede.  I sponged the red piece with Soft Suede too.  I cut out strips of white card stock and sponged them. I also stamped the Elements of Style on the center candle.  

For the flames I used the new Champagne glitter paper.  I did cut them by hand.  

I used the Little Leaves Sizzlet to add some greenery to the front of the card.  On top of that I added some pine looking branches I punched out using the Martha Stewart punch.  I LOVE using that punch.  Those branch leaves are such fun to play with.  I added a piece of the green sewn ribbon and a large pearl in the middle.  I stuck them all together with some small glue dots and that was it.  

It was fun but a far cry from the one I found on the net.  There, now you can go visit it. Just click on that link above in red.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
