Joy Tag

Another day on the go.
There's so much to do this time of year... decorate the house, shop for gifts, go to school programs, bake goodies... and make tags.

This is the last sheet
of that divine Lacrosse paper from Basic Grey's Oxford collection. How I hate to see this go... I LOVE this pattern.

I know this isn't a
traditional Christmas pattern, but just look at those colors... GORGEOUS!!!

I torn a piece from BG's 
Basic Manila 6x6 paper pad, stamped it with the trees from Stampers Anonymous Merry Christmas using Coffee Archival Ink, then sponged Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges. The round metal-edged tag is from Kraft Outlet. I used an old Sweet 'n Sassy sentiment stamp with Coffee Archival, added a My Mind's Eye brad and tied it with a bit of seam binding stained with Vintage Photo Distress Stain.

The die cuts were made 
from Alterations Mini Deer and Pine Tree. The tree is a double layer of chipboard and Core'dinations cardstock that I embossed with Pine Needles Distress EP. The trunk is wrapped with brown May Arts burlap string. Peeking out from under the tree is a bit of cheescloth I aged with Vintage Photo DS.

I'm entering my tag at:
Papercraft Star - Holiday Greenery
BasicGrey Challenges - A Tag for Your Presents
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Embossing

Thanks for stopping by today!

Mercy! Another stunning tag, Linda! Soooooo love the natural feel to this one with the trees and deer, and you are so right.....what gorgeous paper! LOVE how you used the metal edged tag here. I need to remember that. And love the stamped trees and die cut tree. Wrapping the stem in brown twine is just genius. This is amazing!
