Friday Mashup 20 Christmas Tag

Lately I've been totally focused on making tags for my Christmas gifts.  Today I made a tag (or something like a tag) using the Friday Mashup color challenge for inspiration.

I thought my awesome Medallion stamp needed some love, and I've been seeing it used lately in a lot of holiday themed projects, so I thought I could do something neat with it. Then I saw the Paper Players challenge to use wet embossing and I figured this was a match made in heaven!

So I embossed the Medallion stamp in silver emobssing powder on basic black cardstock.  It is very dramatic in real life.  Then I popped up my real red and whisper white circles with dimensionals.  It looks really neat.  I'm either going to use this a front to a gift bag or use it as a tag.  I haven't decided yet.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Just gorgeous! I just love the Medallion stamp and adding the vintage sentiment to the missle looks so classic and elegant. The silver embossing just pops off of that black background, too! Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week! :)
