Tag 4 @ 12 Weeks of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style


I'm sailing in again! with another tag for 

I am catching up fast so I promise the tags will stop soon lol 
Today I am sharing my take on Tag #4

As always, Linda's tag was just delicious! And what really caught my eye was the ginghma / check pattern going on throughout her whole tag.  So ... I used that for my inspiration in making mine. 

A raid of my stash and the only gingham / check kind of paper I had was my Graphic 45! So G45 it was going to be and I knew I had the perfect country check ribbon in my stash to match (though, it needed a tea stain to tone down the white.

I paired the G45 papers up with a santa stamp. 

A raid of my Prima stash and I found the adorable black stars, the gold twigy bits and large star bead were pulled from old Christmas decorations..

Santa has been embossed in rangers fine black detail powder with some gold square brads on the corners and some TH distress inks used to age the piece.  A Kaisercraft rubon (25th Dec) was used on along the top and some raffia for the tag tie.  The tag has a very masculine feel to it that I am just loving! 

I am seriously loving
I have been having so much fun as tags are a  
retaliative new thing for me to be playing with! 

Linda also has a wonderful prize up fro grabs!

Oh, how fun is this? Your G45 gingham paper is perfect and so is that wonderful Santa image. The corner element with all the stars is awesome - love the glitter and shine and that piece of vintage looking lace under it is such a clever touch. It really seals the vintage appeal of this tag. Thanks for sharing such an awesone Tag #4 entry!

I'm so glad you are enjoying the challenge Leesa! Can't wait to see your next tag.
