Christmas Tag


Hello!!!  If you're in the US, I hope you had a good Thanksgiving day!!!

I've used mostly Tim Holtz products (Sizzix, Stamper's Anonymous, Idea-ology, Ranger) on this tag.  I started with a #8 manila tag, took pieces of printed paper from Tim's Christmas Paper Stash pad, tore one edge of each strip of paper and adhered them to the tag with Distress Collage Medium Matte.  I glued more to the bottom of each strip so the torn edge could be pulled forward for more dimension.  The deer is from the Winter Wonderland set.  He is cut from heavy Mixed Media card, inked with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Antique Linen and attached to the tag with foam mounting tape behind the body of the deer and a little glue at the feet.  Next thinned white paint is splattered over the tag.    At the top of the tag is some of Tim's paper string and then a die cut bow (festive greens die set) cut from gold Metallic Kraft paper.  The center of the bow is white card colored with Festive Berried DI and then glittered with Dry Rock Candy.  The tag at the bottom uses a stamp from the Tattered Christmas CMS318 set and then die cut with a tag from the Gift Tags set.. inked around the edges with Festive Berried.. paper string through the hole and then Tim's Craft Thread tied on.  The Holly and Berry is from the Festive Greens die set colored with Distress Inks.  Finally I used Glossy Accents and Dry Rock Candy Glitter around the edges of the tag for icy sparkle.
