Hello Friends, Today I am sharing another tag tutorial! I created a Santa tag using this cute vintage Christmas Card. So start by printing and cutting this card out.
I then take a sheet of white cardstock and cut it down to 3 x 6. I then cut off the ends and punch a hole at the top to create my tag.
I then started layering colors. I started by blending Vintage Photo Distress ink all over my tag, getting darker as I went around the edges. I then took Fired Brick Distress ink and blended the ink from the top going down. I then took a Holly leaf stamp and stamped all around my tag using the same Vintage Photo Distress ink. I really like the same tone on tone look that using the same ink creates. I then stamped a candlestick in the upper corner using the Fired Brick Distress ink.
Here is a closer shot of the tag at this stage.
I then take my Santa image...
Distress the edges by taking scissors and running them around the edges. I then inked the edges using Vintage Photo Distress ink. Glue the image to the tag.
I tied a little key charm on my brown thread and looped through the tag. I then added a mini clothes pin.
I also decided to darken my image by blending Vintage Photo Distress ink on the image.
I then took a bottle of Liquid Pearls and spread it along the top of my tag so that it looks like icicles. The great thing about the Liquid Pearls is that it puffs up so that it gives the tag dimension.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
Have a great Day, Lindsey and Twyla
