festive tag ...

stamps: festive decorations, simply sophisticated,christmas icons all from lili of the valley & spring jubilee by pink paislee
ink: memento (tuxedo black) tim holtz distress ink pads ( barn door, antique linen, brushed corduroy& walnut stain), promarkers, copic spica glitter pens
cardstock: manila tag, craftwork cards digi cardstock
punches/dies: scallop edge punch from stampin up!, oval framelit & big shot from sizzix
I made this tag to coordinate with a striped present bag I bought. the tag was inked with distress then stamped with the cute twinkles in a darker shade of brown. I stamped part of the LOTV image, not inking the fourth bauble to make sure it would fit inside the oval die. I used promarkers to colour the baubles, then added some sparkle with the Spica pens. I cut the oval and inked the edge with red to make it stand out. I also created a border strip, following the promarker sketch, by inking and stamping card and using the punch to give it a decorative scalloped edge. once I had all the pieces, I assembled the tag and finished it off with the simple sentiment at the bottom.
