12 Tags of Christmas - Day Four

Welcome to day four!! So...even though I said yesterday's tag was one of my's tag is in the running for a favorite as is day five, day six...oh shoot, I just love them all this year!! Tim is outdoing himself! :-) Today's tag was focused on embellishments and it was so much fun to decorate. There was minimal stamping involved (only on the ticket stub) and I got to spend more time playing with flower, rhinestones, and jewels.
I started with this amazing vintage Santa image from a sheet of Kasier Craft designer paper. The paper is already pretty aged looking so I only added a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink to the edges to hide the light color of the tag. I then added a rhinestone embellishment (I adore these!!) from Prima. Next came two rows of pearls on the bottom of the tag (these are from Kasier Craft) along with a few lovely flowers from Petaloo. The flowers did a great job of hiding the end portion of the rhinestone flourish. The ticket stub came next and was held on with a tiny paper clip. The tag was finished by adding a piece of velvet ribbon (American Crafts), a mini vintage tag, and some jewel baubles (from Tim's new collection) to the top of the tag. Tim also did a great tutorial on the creating beautiful jewel facets, which I didn't include on my tag, you can check it out here. Enjoy today's tag and be sure to check back tomorrow for the huge Tiffany Doodles blog hop and challenge!!

Loving your TH tags Kim. Great image and blings on this one. Every year I want to do these, but I don't really have any TH products.
