Tag # 6-25 "Merry Christmas" #onelittletag

Hello my friends!  Thank you for joining me.  I an still playing catch-up on my Christmas tags.  This is my tag for June.  I  started off with an ivory coloured cardstock.  I sponged on some antique linen distress ink to "age" the card, then I used the same ink to stamp on some music notes with a Heidi Swapp stamp.
I sponged some gold ink through a Tim Holtz stencil in a random way to add some interest to the background.  I kept the background fairly light so it wouldn't be too busy with the patterned balls   i used a metallic marker to draw in the "string".  I tore and distressed the edgs of the background  I have been using items from my (vast) stash to make my cards.

When I initially created these Christmas bulbs, Which were die cut using a Sizzix die, I pressed the tops of them into some versamark ink and some silver embossing powder to create the caps.  I edged the bulbs with distress ink.

I used some patterned Christmas stock from my stash to add another layer.  I assembled my tag and added some gold cord bows to the to of the Christmas balls.  I mounted the tag to black card to finish it off.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and letting me share my tag with you.   Maybe some of you will be inspired to get a head start on your seasonal cards.  As much as I enjoy making Christmas cards, I always seem to be doing them at the last minute, or not getting them out at all.  So I will be happy to have several tags ready to go!
