Today I want to share a tag with you I created for one of the VSN challenges on Friday. We were to incorporate Music in our project. With all the gorgeous paper out there, it was an easy challenge. Since I had just gotten my latest Ranger product order, I had to try that out right away.

I started by cutting a tag with Tim’s Tag die out of Kraft cardstock. The edges of the tag were sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

2 7/8″ wide pieces of  MME Lost & Found Christmas were adhered to make a slightly smaller layer. The edges were sanded and sponged them with Vintage Photo Distress ink before the layers were stitched to the tag base. A paper doily as cut, sponged with Vintage Photo ink and topped with a partial circle of the Lost & Found Christmas paper.

The doily was adhered to the left hand side of the age. Finesse Pearl swirl piece were adhered to top right of the doily. A sentiment from Flourishes Sentimental Christmas was first stamped in Tsukineko’s Delicata Gold ink, then in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the lower right corner of the green paper strip. The same gold ink was used to add a gold edge to the tag base.

A lightweight coaster as well as a dark red piece of paper from the Christmas collection were cut with Tim’s Mini Reindeer die. The patterned paper was sanded. Both the paper as well as the coaster edges were sponged with Vintage Photo ink before the paper was adhered to the coaster reindeer. Small branches were cut out of Core’dinations paper with Tim’s Festive Greenery die. The paper was sanded before both the branches as well as the reindeer were adhered over the doily layers.

The tag was sprayed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist and a few more pearls were added to the reindeers neck. Seam Binding was dyed with Vintage Photo Distress Reinker and sprayed with more Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist before it was tied under a black button and adhered to the top of the tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
