MCT 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day #5

Hey there! If you arrived here from Tracy’s amazing blog, you’re on the right track. If not, start at Emma’s blog here: My Creative Time.

For my project today, I decided to do a tag. Something very new to me, but I’m very pleased with the result.

My tag was cut from Plantin Schoolbook and I sized it to 6” with my Gypsy. I used my Gypsy to hide the hole that cuts out because it would have been too large. The base of my tag is Paper Studio Ivory cardstock. I LOVE their ivory, but I wish it were thicker. I used my Background Basics:Houndstooth stamp from Papertrey Ink and Real Red ink from Stampin’ Up to stamp the background. And then I distressed the edges with Jenni Bowlin Malted Milk, AND Vintage Photo Distress ink.

The poinsettia was cut with the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia die set. So, so in love with this. I’m pretty sure that it will be seen again. It’s kind of hard to find, but It was well worth it. Poinsettias are the quintessential Christmas flower, so you could use it every year.

I used my Curly Label Die and the sentiment, “Jingle Bell Rock!”, from Mixed Holiday Sentiments. I love this set. I think it’s a must have. I haven’t even used all of the Christmas/winter sentiments yet. I try my best to not repeat sentiments. But that may just be me. I inked my stamp with VersaMark Dazzle and use gold Zing embossing powder from American Crafts. Added some cheap, and I mean CHEAP, green rhinestones to finish it off. I wanted to, “frame,” the sentiment, so I took some dark green grosgrain and pleated it. And I used my sewing machine with brown thread to finish it off. Totally not necessarily, but I’m just trying new things!

Your sentiment title is perfect and that ruched green ribbon looks amazing! I need to learn how to use my sewing machine cuz I always wanna do that w/ribbon but I don't wanna use all that adhesive to bunch it up, kwim?! :) Thanks so much for another dose of crafty inspiration Trell! Have a great day
