Sled Christmas Tag

While browsing through all of the wonderful Christmas tags on Tracy McNeely's 
25 Days of Christmas Tags event I found an adorable tag on day 1 by Lorraine Aquilina.
She used the cute Picture Book Moose die by Simon Says Stamp and combined it with some beautiful ink blending.  Here is her tag:

I was inspired to make a similar tag and I was looking through my Christmas board on Pinterest to get some ideas. I found an older tag made by  Julia Stainton and she used a stag's head die on her tag and it reminded me of Lorraine's moose.  
Julia made a tag that looked like a sled.
I wanted to CASE her tag and this is what I came up with.  

I just love the rustic look of this tag!
I started with a tag from Papertrey Ink and I cut it out half way and then turned the die around and cut it again to extend the length of the tag. 
The wreath die is from Ellen Hutson and I cut it out twice and layered them together with foam tape to give it some dimension. 

The berries on the wreath were made using  Red Berry Nuvo drops 
The stag's head was cut on my Scan N Cut using a free SVG file I found on the internet. 
I just love the stag's head cut out in gold glitter.  
It adds such an elegant look to the tag!

The word Joy at the bottom of the tag is from a Kat Scrappiness die that actually says "Jolly".  It's called the Jolly Brush Script Word and Sentiment die.  I loved the font but I only needed the word Joy so I cut out the two L's from the die and ended up wih Joy!
Sometimes you have to get creative!
The legs of the sled were made with 2 strips of pink paper that were rounded at one end and curled up. The tag is popped up on foam tape above the legs.
For some extra shine I added some mirrored star embellishments by Tim Holtz and for the look of snow I added some white gel pen dots all over the tag. 
All that was missing was the twine to go through the hole at the top and my tag was finished.

I am entering this tag in the link up for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags
why not make a tag and play along too?

Thanks so much for stopping by the old blog today!
