Christmas Birdie Tag

I finally had a bit of time to do some stamping
so I decided to get inky for the tag challenge over on Unity {show & tell}.

I got this sweet little birdie stamp in the mail today from Unity Stamp Company. The name of the kit is Folksy Partridge. As soon as I saw it I thought, 
"This is perfect for a tag!"

I embossed the bird stamp on Papertrey Ink kraft card stock using black craft ink and black embossing powder.

I colored the sweet bird using Stampin' Up!'s Smoky Slate marker and Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens. I wanted to keep it simple so I only used the olive green and red pens. I also used the Uniball Signo white gel pen to add some touches of white to the snow.

I colored the ornament with the silver Wink of Stella. It's a shame you can't see the shimmer in this picture. I couldn't stop there so I stamped the snowflakes from Unity's Different & Beautiful kit around the edge of the tag with Stampin' Up! Real Red ink. I added some Christmas patterned paper to the top. Then I added some Cherry Cobbler sheer linen ribbon and tied it with Fun Stampers Journey black licorice twine. I stamped the sentiment in black craft ink and embossed it with black embossing powder. A few cuts here and there and I had a cute sentiment for this sweet Christmas birdie tag.

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
