patty's 12 days of Christmas...

day 8.....

 Tags are one of my favorite things to make! I was going for a fancy vintage style tag when I made this one. Layering and stamping all add dimension to your tag. The base is plain Cocoa CS and you can write your "to and from" on the back side of the tag with the new Chalk Marker (Z1767 2.95). The front edge of the Cocoa base was stamped using the Flourish strip stamp from the Eclectic Edges stamp set (C1450) with Cocoa ink. 
The next layer is the stripe paper from the Moonlight paper pack. The edges of these 2 layers are sponged with Cocoa.
The top layer of the tag is Cashmere CS stamped with the music notes stamp from the Universal Backgrounds (D1477) stamp set using Cashmere ink. The edges are sponged with Cashmere ink. 
I've applied a rub-on from the Pear & Partridge compliments. CTMH has a great new Rub-On Tool that makes it so easy to apply the rub-on (Z1976).   
Merry Christmas is stamped in Cocoa ink. The base of the tag is wrapped with the Cocoa satin gathered ribbon. The medallion is punched from one of the Pear & Partridge papers. A gold shimmer brad holds the ribbon loop on the top of the tag.
Tags are also great to use on your scrapbook pages to dress up a layout or fill in an empty space.
This is tag #4 on the Art Philosophy cartridge cut at 4.5, 4.25 and 4".
