I am starting a bit early, but I am working on MY personal Christmas tags and gift wrappings for MY FAMILY.  Because I am doing that, I can use whatever items I want to, right??  Soooo, there is a certain person in the crafting world that every year does the 12 tags of Christmas and I love his style.  I created this Christmas tag with some of his crafting items and his style.  Hope you enjoy seeing this ART PIECE.
 There is a lot going on here, but it all adds up to an ART PIECE.  It all started with the kraft tag, then an embossing folder, then some gold encore ink, then some Snow Stuff.
 The JOY is made with stickers, the blue is Distress paint, then a chipboard deer piece with distress paint and white shimmer and blue spritzing.  A doily spritzed and folder as well.
 The three pine cones are made with recycled packing paper that I sponged all sorts of browns all over it, ripped into a circle and ripped into a spiral and glued back into a circle.  A small fake piece of pine bough is underneath the cones.  Also some more of the fake snow put on the pine cones and all over the tag.

Knitted cord in cherry cobbler from the clearance rack for the tag tie and VOILA - it is FINI.

I would love to hear what you think of my artful gift tag.

I am entering this at THE FRIDAY MASHUP.
