SNSDC84 - Tag You're It!

This week's challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is to make a tag.  You can add the tag to a gift, have it be a to/from tag or even have a tag on a card. Your tag doesn't even have to be Christmas themed.  One of the DT chose to make a Valentine's Day card. The choice is your's as long as there's a tag.

I chose to keep things simple and made two to/from tags that can also be bookmarks after the holidays.  I went with some of my favorites on this project.  I used Rhubarb {he's such a cute teddy bear}, my new floral oval and classic oval dies and traditional red & green papers.

For one tag I used Rhubarb and his candy cane and the other Rhubarb and his stocking.  I colored Rhubarb and his candy cane/stocking with Copics.  I accented the bow on the candy cane with star dust stickles and the fur on the stocking with frosted lace stickles.  I also added some stickles to the holly on the stocking.

After coloring, I die cut both the image panel and patterned paper mat from classic oval nesties.  Then they were layered on top of the next to largest floral oval die cut.  A jute string provides the hang tie.  VERY simple.  I didn't add pearls or other bumpy embellishments so that they could be used as bookmarkers after they finish their jobs as package tags.

Cardstock:  Express-it, Bazzill
Patterned paper:  Echo Park (Season's Greetings)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Rhubarb's Stocking, Rhubarb's Candy Cane)
Copics: Rhubarb's Candy Cane (E01, 09, 31, 33, 35, 37, N0, W1, G14, 17, R27), Rhubarb's Stocking (E01, 09, 31, 33, 35, 37, N0, W1, G17, R27)
Embellishments/Tools:  Spellbinders (Classic Ovals Small & Large, Floral Ovals), jute (JoAnn's), Stickles (Star Dust, Frosted Lace, Christmas Red, Green)
