Graphic45 tag...........

I used some more of the Graphic45 double-sided cardstock for this tag.  It measures approx. 6"X3".  I rounded the corners on this tag.  First I painted this tag with Studio Landscape Green.  When it dried, I painted over it with white gesso and added some clear Stickles before it dried.   Next I painted over those layers with Ranger's antique Crackle.  When it dried, I rubbed Ranger's photo Distress inkpad over the crackle effect until I had it down into the cracks.   I tore a 1" strip of the same cardstock and edged it with brown ink before adhering it to the tag near the bottom.  Next I used two Storybook labels cut with the Cricut and layered them together with tiny star brads.  I wrote the "to/from" with a fine-point Sharpie; then, I glued them to the bottom of the tag as shown.  I used some of the Graphic45 Christmas postalz cut from a sheet of their cardstock.  I ran these through my small Xyron sticker-maker and stuck them on the tag.  I used a strip of stick-on red star gems to the left side of the tag and randomly placed green gems around the tag.   I tied a red ribbon on this tag.
