Tag Your It

Over at Come and Get It this week we have a challenge that involves tags, you are to make a tag or make some with a tag. Great time to get the tags done for your gifts. Thanks to Shell for our challenge.
For my card I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder on the Soft Suede for the background. The tag itself is one of those large postal tags, I used the music wheel with versamark on it first and embossed it with gold embossing powder, then I used distress inks to color it, doing an emboss resist technique. I then stamped on the Noel greeting from the Greetings of the Season stamp set, then I used the framelit dies to cut out a couple of ornaments, and used bakers twine for the bows and the string on them. The branches at the top were done with a MS punch. The final thing I made was a bow using the scalloped tulle ribbon in Cherry Cobbler, and adhered it to the bow.
Thanks for looking
