Good morning friends~ It's been a while since I've done a Mixed Media Monday post so I thought I'd pop in and share some vintage style Christmas tags I made recently.
I participated in a box swap a couple of months ago where a box of unwanted supplies were gathered up in a flat rate box and shipped around to about 12 crafters. Each crafter, upon receiving the box would take out what they wanted from the box and put the rest back into the box, adding in their own supplies that were no longer wanted or being used. I was lucky enough to find these amazing vintage 3D images in the box. In fact, I got two brand new packages of them!
I die cut two tags using Sizzix Framed Tags by Tim Holtz out of white and soft blue cardstock. I ran both blue tags through my die cutting machine using a very old Sizzix Alterations Vintage Postcard embossing folder, also from Tim Holtz. Using a brayer, I added Wedding Dress ink from Memento over the top of the embossing making the raised areas of the words stand out.
I added a strip of bold lined paper from my scrapbox to the bottom of each tag and added Walnut Stain distress ink around the edges. I glued these vintage images of boys having a snowball fight onto each tag. The two tags together make the whole scene. I added some Snow Glitter from Martha Stewart along the edges of the tags, and within the scene itself.
I added old ribbon and twine to finish the tags off.
These tags make me think of a Norman Rockwell painting. I think they'll be super cute attached to Kraft paper wrapped packages.
Thanks for stopping by!
