Vintage Christmas Tags

 It is so nice to see you here today. I would like to take a minute to say thanks all our viewers who take the time to leave  comments. It is really appreciated. So Thank You. Now for this weeks project. I was inspired by our weekly challenge theme "Tag Your It" and decided to follow along. It is always nice to make your own personal tags to attach to the gifts for those special people in your lives.

I love the vintage look so I created a set of three simple but elegant vintage tags using only five dies. All the bases were cut from a aqua printed paper and  paired with kraft paper. All were inked up with distress ink. I embossed here and there with the chunky metal embossing powder so that there where areas with no embossing and  then inked them areas where the embossing was missed. This gives it a dimensional look with out the metal embossing looking too chunky if you know what I mean.

 For this tag I used one of the Pierced Stacker #2 for the base. Don't you just love the stitching around this die.  The Merry Christmas  is from the  Crafty Ann  collection.

The base of this tag is Circle - Scalloped LG Stackers Nesting Dies . I have left the wreath off set a bit so you can see the nice line edge around the scallop which gives it another dimension without layering it. The Joy to the World Wreath set I cut twice. I layered one wreath on top of the other to create more fullness, The sentiment from that set was place in the center.

This tag was made from one die set which is the Bow and Bell . The bow cuts out as a outline so I just attached it to paper and fussy cut around it. So you can get two different looks with this bow, by backing it as I have done or leave it as a outline only. I embellished all three tags with aqua bling .

I hope I have inspired you today with these tags. They are so pretty that you could even hang them on your tree as a decoration year after year.
