Hi hard core croppers. The tag I created is in response to Kerri's challenge "create a holiday tag using Core'dinations Cardstock". This is the tag I am submitting for this challenge and it SHOUTS holiday. Hope you like it.
I went for the vintage feel so picked a kraft tag for the base. I rubbed the embossing folder with distress ink on the smooth side and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The two ornaments were die cut with the mini star placed in the middle first. Then I switched the colored stars and adhered each behind the openings and sanded each ornament. I also cut two more ornament tops using the same die from mirri card and glued to the tops. I used distress ink on the edges of the tag. I cut a paper clip in half and bent it to resemble an ornament hook. The green ornament was attached first. I tied a lace bow and adhered to the red ornament, then popped up and brought one tail of the bow through the tag hole. I wrapped tiny red tinsel to the bottom and stapled. The staples were colored red with a Sharpie. The wood embellishment was colored with walnut distress ink and attached to the bottom corner.
