My Day 6 tag of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas

This is my Day 6 tag of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas. I must admit it was the easiest one so far for me. Visit his Web site here to see what it's all about.
I cut the tree out of green cardstock on my Cricut Expression and added some Aleene's glitter snow. The truck was printed from a graphics software package on my computer. I printed it on cardstock and colored the white areas of the truck with a gold marker. There's a red button added where the spare tire is located. (At least I think it was the spare tire.) I stamped the "Merry Christmas" and the flourish. The background is a page from an old book. I glued it down then tore the edges. I used Ranger Distress inks around the edges of the tag and also in the middle of the tag.
The metal charm was silver so I colored it with a dark brown Copic marker. It's attached to the ribbon with a little brass safety pin.
The tree is wrapped with twine to the top of the truck. The tree and truck are attached to the tag with foam dots.
This one was easy-peasy!
Let me know what you think about my tags so far. Sometime before Christmas... I've got to finish my Christmas cards.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you'll take the time to leave a little comment.

Have a great evening!

Hi Debbie, i really like the dictionary page technique. Had fun doing it but mine came out a bit too dark. Yours is wonderful. stamping sue

These tags are all so cute! I especially like the truck with the tree in the back. It looks so vintage!

If you put a mini-fridge in the Craft House you wouldn't have to leave to get snacks! ;)
