12/4 Daydream Medallion Christmas Tags



 At my last Big Shot Class . . . my customers got to make a gorgeous Poinsettia Flower. Of course, I didn't come up with something this beautiful all by myself! The credit goes to Julie Edmonds. THANK YOU, Julie!! You can find her flowers HERE. I modified her design just a bit by adding an extra layer . . . which probably makes it look a little less like a poinsettia, but I liked the fullness of it just a bit better. My red flower is created with Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green and Champagne Glimmer paper. 



Here is a close up of the white flower I made. I used VersaMark stamped onto Shimmery White card stock and then embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. Each layer is popped up on dimensionals. I used gold brads on the very top layer for a beautiful center accent. The Always Artichoke leaves are cut with the Autumn Accents die and then I just free-handed the veins running through them with my Bone Folder. If you didn't want to make this a "tag," you could just as easily turn it into an ornament.


 This is the back side of the tag. I used a straight edge and a bone folder to make a crease on a plain flower shape and glued the top portion to the bottom just above the crease line.
 

 Here is a view of the inside of the tag . . . plenty of room to write a message!

Oh my gosh! You are reading my mind! My post for tomorrow features a project that looks so similar! Mine is a treat holder made with a Sweet Treat Cup, but it uses the Floral Frames and Autumn Accents leaves in the same way. I love your stamping and embossing on these gift tags! Beautiful!

I made one of the white flowers using all five layers of the floral framelits. The three gold brads still fit the smallest layer. I made the ornament style and am giving it to a friend as part of a birthday gift. I wrote " You are golden" on the back. Thank you for sharing your talent!
