Tag #6 - Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas - It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

Today, I'm sharing my 6th tag for Ellen Hutson's 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge.  The theme for #6 is 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear'.   I was inspired by both Ardyth's and Sandy's tags with their dark midnight skies.
Here's my tag:

I covered a square of white card with Galaxi Washi tape from Altenew to create my midnight sky and layered the Wisemen die cut over it - with the front piece layered up on foam dots.  I rubbed over the edges of the Wisemen die cut with a QTip that I inked with Hero Hues Sea Salt Ink to give the shapes definition.  I die cut the star and peace out of metallic gold paper and layered it all onto the Tag Sale Quilted die cut.

We're half way through the 12 tags of Christmas- and I'm so happy to have made so many pretty tags already for the gifts I will be giving this year- 6 more to go!   You'll find  Ellen's challenge here.

I'm also linking my tag to:

Totally awesome tag!!! I didn't know there was Galaxy Washi, but it is perfect for your beautiful creation. Love the Wisemen with the edges highlighted. Usually I use a darker ink for the edges. But when they are already dark, it makes sense to do the edges in a lighter ink. Fabulous effect!! What a wonderful CHRISTmas card!!
Thanks for joining us for "The Christmas Story" at Christmas Kickstart!!
