I used copper foil for the top and bottom pieces, die cutting/embossing with Spellbinders™ Classic Lace Border. To tone down the bright look of the copper, I added some alcohol inks and then brushed on Green Patina Perfect Pearls. The ornaments are made from Graphic 45 paper. Even though I forgot to add the copper foil to two of the ornaments (oops), I went around the edges with gold paint. This was a fun tag to work on!

Oh Sherry you are just so bad, you are wonderful! Great job. Loving these tags. I like the Copper on just one of the tags - you meant to do that in order to add extra focus on the centre one?! Right! ;-D
