Cute Christmas Tag

Hi Bloggers,

I'm back with a second post for today. I just had to share this really cute tag with you -

I used a cream parcel tag. I dusted it with my anti-static bag and then stamped the holly from the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Christmas Accessories 2 stamp set with Perfect Medium. I embossed the images with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then covered the whole tag with Vintage Photo Distress Stain. The stamped holly acted as a resist. Then I added some berries using the Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red Pearlescent PVA.

The cute mouse is actually from this stamp -

I stamped the image in Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I coloured just the mouse and his tail using Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks. I then cut out the mouse and his tail. I glued him to my tag as shown. I made some little whiskers out of some thin black wire.

I added some Cosmic Shimmer Ribbon in Basque Red. I stamped the sentiment from the Tatty Button Text 2 set in Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Oval Nestie and inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I cut out a faux nestie in red card and mounted my sentiment on to it. I added this to my tag.

What do you think? Cute?

I'm sharing this tag with the following challenges -
