More gift tags! I love how this turned out using Star of Bethlehem. I stamped the image onto Classic White Card Stock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Colored with Copic Collections:




Once colored I die cut using Spellbinders Standard Circles Small, layered onto a paper doily. I also stamped and cut around the center flowers and popped them up on dimensionals. The base is Spellbinders Die Decorative Labels Twenty eight cut using Color Made Easy Poppy card stock with some Bo Bunny designer paper with white crochet lace wrapped around. Added some Color Made Easy Poppy rancho ribbon and gold cord. Voila!
