Enjoy The Magic Of The Moment


Hello everyone! Can you believe Christmas is only 5 days away! In celebration of Christmas, I made this tag. Sometimes I forget the true meaning of Christmas, and to me this tag a wonderful reminder. The birth of Jesus.
I cut the tag and mat from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More at 4 inches. The baby and star were cut from Winter Frolic. I embossed the manger with a Mesh Texture folder and inked all the edges of the cuts. I used a black pen to draw in the eyes and nose. I added chalk to the cheeks and I pop dotted the head. The star front I covered with chunky glitter and pop dotted it to the star base. The sentiment is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1. I thought this was the PERFECT sentiment! Enjoy the magic of the moment... of Christmas. I stamped the sentiment, tore the paper, and inked the edges. To finish I added a crinkle ribbon hanger and bow.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL day and thanks for visiting.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spots Monday Challenge- Tag...You're It
2. Fantabulous Cricut- Trimming with a tag
3. Whimsical Designs- Tags
EDIT: People have been asking about the paper I used. It's from DCWV Christmas Combo stack that I bought last year.

Gigi...you pop dotted Baby Jesus' head?! LOL!!! I adore this tag! I LOVE the bling on the star! When I first looked at it, I thought you had used a gem from a piece of costume jewelry. Great job on that glitter! And great use of that stamp. I agree, it is just perfect for your precious tag!
