My First Christmas Tag!

While blurfing, I always love the tags that stampers put so much work into. But when it comes to making them, I'm reluctant to put so much into something headed to the trash! This year, though, as belts are tightened all around, the packaging is going to mean so much more on each gift. So here you go, my first official Tag creation. Thanks, Angel, for posting the Christmas challenge!
The dp is Making Memories from Target (a travel themed pad), and the ribbons are from my stash, but could be SU! The trees are stamped in Always Artichoke using Kitchen Sink Stamps Peaceful Christmas, and are embossed with silver. Everything is distressed - edges of paper are sanded, roughed up with the edge distressor and inked with silver ink. I even took sanding paper to the embossing to make it look a little less perfect.

VERY nice tag! I'm with you...tags are not something I spend a lot of time on, but pretty packaging ALWAYS impresses me! Thank you for playing along!
