Tags Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there!  I am back today to share with you my inspiration for the new challenge going on at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.


I used a vintage tag image from Crafty Secrets for the main image on the tag.  I matted it on to red glitter card stock, and then matted that onto green embossed card stock.  I then added a border of glitter on the edge of the image with Pumice Stone Distress Glitter.  I made a small floral embellishment with flowers and picks from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I just love the Silver Spiral Stamens!

Nothing finishes off a tag and brings it all together more than the ribbons you add at the top.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has so many beautiful ribbons and trims to help with this.  I used plaid Christmas Ribbon, silver metallic grosgrain, red burlap string, and white jute string.

I hope you enjoy my vintage Christmas tag, and join in the fun with your own tag!  Have a wonderful day.

I am entering this tag for the current linky party going on at Crafty Secrets.  The themes are Christmas, Calenders, or Cooking.
