Michael Strong Card of the Day - Wednesday

I first stamped the tags in Early Espresso and punched out.  I stamped Mike's small Christmas Tree three times on Soft Suede paper in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I cut out the top third of one tree, the top two thirds of another tree and all of the last tree and layered them on top of one another.  I used Stampin Up! clay dyed with Early Espresso to make the button and tied with some linen thread.  I used a woodgrain embossing folder to emboss the Early Espresso core paper and then sanded so the woodgrain really stood out.  I cut a bit of burlap ribbon and took out some threads and moved the rest around to get the look I liked.  Then I assembled the card and added a bit of silver trim and paper punching to make it a bit more festive!
