Vintage Kitty Christmas Tag

Hello friends!
Christmas Tag #10 features a super sweet vintage kitty card!

Print this card and cut out the kitty.

Cut out a tag shape or take a manila tag and pick out a stamp to use for the background of the tag.
You will also need white paint.

Ink your stamp up with white paint and stamp along the top and bottom of the tag.
Let paint dry.

Now cover your tag with red Distress ink (Festive Berries). Don't worry about covering the stamped image. go right over it.

Now take a damp cloth and lightly rub the ink off the stamped image.
Isn't that cool that the paint acts as a resist to the paint?

Now glue the image to the center.

Cut out a banner shape from patterned paper. Fan fold the ends to create a layered banner.
Adhere a Christmas sentiment to the banner.

Glue the banner to the bottom of the tag.

Tie a ribbon through the top and the tag is finished!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Oh so sweet I will make this.

Those acrylic blocks, I just bought one and the type stamps that go on them, question what makes them stick to the block? and do you cut apart a cluster of different stamps or just ink the one you want to use.

I love all your sweet tags but I especailly love the card image you shared today. It's my youngest grandson's first Christmas and this would be perfect for his Christmas card! Thank you!

Your tags are so adorable! Creating tags looks to be such a fun craft but I have way too many crafting irons in the fire and don't dare add another one! LOL
Do you sell most of the tags you make or keep them? I would love to buy one of your tags...maybe start a collection of tags to put in my sewing/craft room.
