BBTB2 - Christmas Tag You're It

This week's challenge at BBTB2 is a Christmas tag - our hostess is calling this "Tag You're It".

I made this using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, cutting the ornament at 5", using white cardstock as the base and gold glitter paper for the detail.  The poinsetta was cut at 4 different sizes, creased and layered to give it a 3D effect.  Gold gemstones were added in the middle.  The name tag was also cut from Artiste, and the white name is cut using Don Juan, that cut can be done at 1/2" very easily, so I use it a lot.  The beads and ribbon were from my stash, I know I wanted to add a spring or a bow at the top, and this just jumped out at me.

Hop on over to to see all the Christmas tags the team has created.   TAG - YOU ARE IT!
