Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #268

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit with me. I certainly hope that all our American friends have had their fill of turkey and thoroughly enjoyed their Thanksgiving celebrations. It is now full steam ahead towards Christmas.

With that in mind I have a tag that I made for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge #268 - Double Layer Tags. I chose to make a Christmas tag.

At the moment I only own one Papertrey Ink tag, namely Tag Sale 4 and I used it for the top layer, then used an very old Sizzix die called Oval Combo for the bottom layer using paper from an old Michaels Christmas paper pack.

My focal image on the tag is from the Papertrey Ink stamp set Peaceful Pinecones and I cut out the image with the matching die and stamped it with Memento inks in Cottage Ivy and Rich Cocoa.

I used the Papertrey Ink Double Edged Banner die for the sentiment, also from Peaceful Pinecones, which is stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. I added a small heart from Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here Holiday in the same ink. I just LOVE that stamp set.

I used a piece of twine at the top of the tags and also added a red button tied up with the same twine. A really fun and quick project and the second tag layer really adds some interest.

Well that is all from me for tonight. I hope you will take a moment to share your comments with me as I read them all and love hearing from you. Cheers.

  2. Such a pretty tag Melanie! Love the mix of patterned papers and the sprig of pine!

  3. What a pretty tag - I like the two tag shapes and your choice of colors and papers. The button at the top is the perfect finishing touch.

  4. Hi Melanie! So sweet how you combined the 2 tags. Love that subtle plaid, and the pinecone. Beautiful double tag!
