Vintage Christmas Tag

Hello Everybody!

This tag won in the Top 3 at Try Stampin' On Tuesday!  Thanks y'all!

I am starting to work on some Christmas tag-one of my most favorite things to do.  I especially love sending an envelope of tags to my friend Melissa.  So if your reading this-surprise! ;)

I am submitting this tag into the following challenges:

365 Cards: Day 339 Tag Your It: Make a Holiday Tag using Non-Traditional Colors--I used browns, pink, blue (salty ocean TH distress ink), and black

Try Stampin' On Tuesday: Holiday Tag Stravaganza Part 2--Holiday Tags

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Make Your Own Background--The background is vintage photo and walnut stain T.H. Distress Ink and a handwriting background stamp.  Also, I flicked some water on the tag to react with the ink.  The top of the tag has scattered straw stamped on it using a dotted stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.


I was going for a vintage feel so I wouldn't use red or green on this tag for the 365 Cards challenge.  For me that was very challenging-but I love it!  I found the Santa at The Graphic Fairy.  The banners are stamps from Hero Arts and the round 25th banner is from Inkadinkado.  Wish is a Tim Holtz ticket.  I added buttons at the top and letter stickers for the names.  And there is lace at the top for string.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...tag-you're it! :)
