I'm not a huge fan of any themed project but I have some lefties from last years' christmas mini so I decided to play along with them and some new tools I have bought recently.
The base of this tag is thick yellow cardstock. First I did some masking using LSG and Glimmer Mists showing bells and green "flowers" (they were suppose to be snowflakes but I changed my mind).
Next step was to distress the card and stamp the lyrics of "wish you a merry christmas" with staz-on ink.
As it was very strong background, I used white gesso to tone it down.
I recently bought an embossing pen and was willing to try it so I went over the masked shapes and embossed there. I also used this pen onto parts of the image (Graphic45) to give some highlights to the dresses, the star and the candles on the tree. It's very shimmery though it's difficult to see with the picture.
The metal flowers were silver and I embossed them with white (as the title).
A bit of more misting, stickles and some acrylic flowers (like snowflakes) and my tag was done.
