Nichole - Merry & Bright Tag

Christmas is coming - and fast! Nichole here with a Christmas Tag. Can you believe it's December already? Hope you're fully enjoying the Christmas Countdown and all the projects we have on offer!

Here's a special tag for any present under the tree - whether it be for a loved one - or yourself!

Here I'm using the Kaisercraft Merry & Bright Collection to make a tag.

These gentle muted tones inspired me to do a bit of a distress look.  The background is dark green and has been painted over with Folk Art Crackle Medium, and then finished with a quick coat of white acrylic paint.  It crackled so nicely!

Tim Holtz Ideaology Tissue Tape in Tidings theme gives this antique look even more authenticity with Christmas Advertisements.

Some washi tape along the bottom makes a nice golden contrast against the dark green.  Snowflakes were stamped in Colorbox White Pigment ink to float above the other elements.

Some Diamond Stickles to this Kaisercraft Merry and Bright die cuts gives these berries a bit of frost and sparkle.

A small pompom was made from red and white baker's twine, fluffed and trimmed, then glued down on top of the tag string.

And it IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  

Thanks for reading, and hope these Christmas Countdown projects continue to inspire you to create and to celebrate the Holidays!
