Jolly Blogger’s Post 1: Merry Gentlemen Tag

Smeared ink Jolly Bloggers Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome Jolly Bloggers and Merry Hoppers! For Day 1 of the blog hop, I’ve created a tag that I hope you’ll like. The finished size is 4 3/4″ by 2 3/8″. Starting with a manila shipping tag, I removed the string and attached Green Metallic textured cardstock from American Craft. The gents are a stamp from PaperArtsy Minis (MN03–Dapper Men) stamped with black ink on cream cardstock. I printed the sentiment on white cardstock in Poor Richard font. Tear both of these to make a deckle edge. Inked the fellows edge with Pine Green Whispers die ink. Mount the sentiment onto American Craft red foil cardstock. The ribbon is from American Craft as well and the poinsettia stickers are from Sandy Lion Essentials. Hope you enjoy and would love your feedback!
