Twelve Tags of Christmas with Viva Las Vegastamps! - Day #10

It's Day #10 and all is Golden and Bright!
Twelve Tags of Christmas with
Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team!!!

Myself along with members of the Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team
will each be making tags every day December 1st thru 12th,
all using the same plate of stamps

Thanks for stopping by! To get back to the top of the hop,

Here is my creation for today....

I used these VLVS stamps: "Have a Blessed Christmas" sentiment from Plate 1363, Holly Leaf #3760, Leafy Border #6292, and Angel Blowing Horn #6303.

All stamps used are from Viva Las Vegastamps!
Close-up view of raised sentiment and richness achieved
with gold embossing powder.
This is a pretty simple tag. I selected a dark holly patterned paper by My Minds Eye and I stamped each of the stamps, one at a time, then applied gold embossing powder. I did not heat until I was done with all stamping so I didn't overcook any of the embossing powder from repeated heating. Then I rubbed the background with antique gold and silver pearlescent dew drop ink. I duplicated the saying again and trimmed out, used a corner punch on the top corners and adhered with Miracle tape. I achieved the raised look by adhering a layer of paper underneath. I finished off with a green organza ribbon bow. Simple design with a stunning result.
