It is that time of the year again when I try and get a head start in making my Christmas cards and tags. This holiday tag is an easy one that I could replicate quickly without making too much of a mess and yet it looks gorgeous. I love the layered look of grey stamping and colorful ink blend for a simple and elegant statement. The grey color from VersaFine Morning Mist is gorgeous and it’s not too harsh making this my perfect go-to ink color for stamping.
Time: 1 hour
Stamp a wreath and sentiment onto a manilla tag in VersaFine Clair Morning Mist.
Use Memento Luxe and a jumbo dauber and blend Love Letter ink around the edges outside of the stamped wreath.
Use Memento Luxe Pistachio and blend inside the stamped wreath area.
Use VersaFine Clair Shady Lane and stamp several leaves onto smooth white cardstock. Cut out the leaves.
Use On Point Glue and adhere the leaves in clusters in two sections on the stamped wreath.
Use On Point Glue and make small drops of glue on the berries and then lightly sprinkle with gold glitter and leave to dry. Shake off the excess glitter and brush clean the tag of stray glitter pieces.
Adhere the leaves, add embellishments as desired and then add some colored ink or paint splats to finish off your tag with some added details.
