Final Tags of the Season!

And here it is.........the final tag of the season!!!  Definitely NOT a one-layer tag!  This one took some time. I'll explain below........
For the background....I wanted to use layers of papers from the Hobby Lobby paper pack I bought. So, I cut a piece of rectangle cardstock just a bit larger than the Nesties tag I was going to use. I layered strips of paper in all different ways, and then I cut out the tag. So I had a really cool (& busy) background.  I used vintage photo distress inks on the edges and because I didn't let the gold ink dry from a previous tag......the vintage photo now has gold elements to it!  So..........I embraced the gold again.

I had some gold sticker ribbon and I laid that across the tag as well and popped up the Inkadinkado reindeer that I had embossed in black. You'll notice the red gems I added to him as well.

And since he was looking a little flat on the card, I used some green "things" (umm, my brain isn't working)..to the bottom of the tag...so he looks like he's flying over them!

And........that's all folks!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Wow, this one is beautiful! :)
What do you mean that you embossed it with black? Is it black embossing ink that you heated up (am i thinking of the right stuff?)?
And, that's kinda the loop (tag tie ribbon) i was looking for yesterday when i was making a bookmark, but couldn't remember how to make it...ish. :D

Another beautiful tag and wow that one did take time, but it really shows, it is gorgeous. Guess I will have to now go into tag withdrawal. I really do love all your tags and thank you so much for sharing them. :) Have a great holiday.
