Christmas Tag - CR84FN40

This is the second week of the  CR84FN40 colors. I was happy to make two projects as I love this color combo.  

For my second project I pulled out a piece of recycled corrugated cardboard to create a tag. 

The cardboard tag was distressed with vintage photo and acrylic paint. Then a layer of pattern paper (Teresa Collins Traveler) torn and distressed was layered onto the tag. 

The Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate provided the sentiment and the image stamped in brown and red ink. I added a few rusty snowflakes as accents with snowflake gems to finish it off. 

The inspiration photos for CR84FN40:
