Christmas Tag

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I know a lot of us are very busy with Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, parties and such. I want to show you a tag I made today using 2 of Tim Holtz's techniques that you can see here.







I cut a piece of burlap and used Tim Holtz's snowflake stencil over it. I sprayed on color using Fired Brick Distress spray. I then adhered the burlap piece to the tag. I used Tim Holtz's letterpress system for the word "happiness,"  as seen above. I flicked white gesso over green card stock and punched out the evergreen leaves and added the paper poinsettia. The green plaid strip at the top is a piece of washi tape. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season!

  1. This is a really neat traditional and masculine looking tag. What a lot of fun with the stenciling on the burlap but then added ribbons and flowers!
