Day 2 presents another gorgeous tag by Tim Holtz. Loved that he used the Reindeer Flight die. I have this die and use it all the time!
Here is Tim's Christmas Tag#2
Here is my Christmas Tag #2:
I don't have ink stains and perfect pearl mist I decided to cover the entire tag with Be Creative double-sided tape and sprinkled Glitter Ritz transparent micro-fine glitter. Burnishing the glitter onto the tape it leaves a very glittery smooth sheen. I used a holly stamp (CTMH) inked in green and stamped directly onto the glittered surface in the corner (yes, you can stamp over micro-fine glitter). I also stamped Believe down right edge.
Next, I took Distress Ink Vintage Photo and the blending tool to rub the ink onto the glitter tag and around the edges. The transparent microfine glitter takes on a very soft gold hue.
I diecut the reindeer out of chipboard/linen fabric and the iron fence border along the bottom. I didn't have the supplies to make the mini wreath so I cut out an individual section from some o-wire. My initial plan was to string some mini buttons hanging from the reindeer. I put the first button on and it looked immediately like a bling-y ring. So I thought why not do a fun play on the engagement theme. I cinched the o-wire together , strung it around the reindeer, and made a small tag titled 'we're engaged!'. This would make a fun gift tag for a couple recently engaged or as an embellishment on a scrapbook page about getting engaged.
Here is a photo of the finished tag in much better light. Hope you enjoyed seeing how it all came together.
