Now for my Tag of Christmas....
I created this tag using the Baroque Sizzix die by Tim Holtz. I used the die to cut a baroque shape out of Crumb Cake card stock and Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper, both by Stampin' Up!
Then I stamped the music score with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder. I stamped the tree using Whisper White Craft ink by Stampin' up! and then Heat embossed it with UTEE and then again with White embossing powder.
I used the negative from a chipboard letter from Stampin' Up!, ran my Walnut Stain Distress Ink pad over it, pressed it into my Versamark pad and then heat embossed it using UTEE. I backed the chipboard piece with vintage Christmas sheet music and cut a holly from the paper (I added Crystal Effects to it to make it sturdy) to add to the front corner.
I applied Olive Green and Timber Brown StazOn ink to the white tree using my finger to add some color and interest to the image. I did the same thing to the chip piece using the whisper white craft ink. I used the Scrollwork on the edge die as a mask and inked the tag using Walnut Stain distress ink.
Add a large Stampin' Up! Eyelet, some Kraft Taffeta Ribbon by Stampin' Up! and a grungy metal tag from KraftOutlet and your finished!
Merry Christmas to you and yours and thank you again for joining us for the Papercraft Star Tags of Christmas Blog Hop, your next stop on the hop is the talented Liz!
