Papers:
Card Stock: Camel and Cream (Paper Goods)
Suede Paper: Burgundy (Hot Off the Press)
Inks:
Pigment Cat's Eye Queue: Rustic (Colorbox)

Large Antique Metal Brads (Club Scrap)

Paper Trimmer

Directions:

  1. Stamp tag image on camel colored cardstock and trim out neatly. Punch out the hole and thread fibers. Set to the side.
  2. Ink the Santa image with the Cocoa ink pad from the Queue and stamp once. While the stamp still has the Cocoa ink, ink it with the Merlot and stamp on the cream colored cardstock. Trim the second image out neatly.
  3. Cut an oval shape from the suede paper that is 2.375" x 2.625" and another from the camel colored card stock that is 2.5" x 3". Placing the suede on top, layer the two papers and attach with the double sided tape. Attach the Santa image to the mat and set aside. 
  4. To create the background paper, tear a 4" x 5.125" piece of camel card stock out. Using the Dune colored ink pad, swirl the ink all over the paper. Repeat with the Brown ink, followed by the Merlot. While the inks are still wet, blend the colors with a tissue.
  5. Randomly stamp the holly image all over the inked paper. Distress the edge of the paper with the Merlot ink.
  6. Mat the background paper on a piece of suede paper that has been cut to 4.25" x 5.25". Punch holes in the corners of matted background paper and attach brads.
  7. Center and attach the matted Santa and tag images to the matted background paper. Create a 4.25" x 5.25" card from the remaining cream colored card stock and attach the card front with double sided tape.
  8. Enjoy sharing!
