Great Impressions: Tag Into Card

Hi, all!  Well, the holidays are a super busy time for me and you, as well, I'm sure, so I decided to be a bit lazy with this week's project and show you how I made THIS TAG into a card!  I don't really do tags very much, that may change in the future, and I didn't wan this one to go to waste, so I decided I'd turn it into a card so I could share it with someone this holiday season!  It uses some beautiful stamps from the Great Impressions store, so it deserves a second wind, I think!  Come and take a peek!

I love the way this image, H190 Vintage Holly Branches, looks embossed in gold and water colored.  I added some glossy accents to the berries to give them a little more shine, too.  A few rhinestones, a button, and some twine, add more holiday colors to the card.

The sentiment, C427 Seasons Greetings, was also heat embossed in gold, but this time onto some red cardstock.  I decided to cut it as a strip to "anchor" the tag a bit.

The tag was then added to a piece of white cardstock with a dry embossed frame and then added to a card.  The white on white is perfect for highlighting this beautifully colored image, don't you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  Hop over to the Great Impressions blog for more inspiration and come play along with our monthly challenge, too!  If you use stamps from Great Impressions, you'll be able to link up your creation in our Customer Gallery, too!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
