MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ merry christmas!


Hi today is Tag It Tuesday over at My Creative Time.  
I think you know by now my feeling about tags...they are perfect to have on hand for any occasion!  You can quickly hang them from a gift bag or add them to a card base for a quick card!

My tag today is going to be added to my Christmas stash.  I usually have some sort of theme or color scheme for my holiday wrap, however this year I think I'm going for an eclectic look.  I'm toying around the idea that the wrap will be solid colors of red, white, and kraft, with the tags and ribbon being the focal point.


After die cutting the tag I stamped with the striped border twice with my Misti tool.  I didn't get the lines perfect so I added the "merry christmas" banner to hide my mistake.  Remember no mistakes in paper crafting you just have to make some adjustments  :)

The wood background was created using white pigment ink on the grey.  For the pine needles, I stamped with VersaMark on the blue/green cardstock...VersaMark is the best "color" ink to have since it goes with EVERYTHING!  Then I fussy cut the pine needles...oh how I wish Miss Emma would come out with dies for the "Pretty Spring Wreath" Stamp set!!!!  hint hint  ;)
