Viva Las Vegastamps! Day 4 ~ 12 Tags of Christmas Blog Hop!

Day 4 of My Viva Las Vegastamps!  12 Tags of Christmas featuring Plate 1363!!!!  

Now for todays special tag!!!  SANTA'S MAGIC KEY!!!
Use the ornament shape from the BoBunny Mini Edgy Album Blitzen.  One could be cut from chipboard and painted or covered with paper. It measures 6 1/2 x 6 1/2.

Stickle the swirls on the ornament to enhance.  Set aside to dry.
       SANTA’s KEY
This key is very special, you see. It won't work for you or me.
Hang it just outside your door Then go to bed and worry no more.

Close your eyes and close them tight,
cause Santa Claus is coming tonight!
Today's chimneys are awfully small and Santa's far from thin, So leave this key outside the door, To allow Santa to come in!

Type Santa poem on paper sized to fit on the ornament.  Sample is Times New Roman 10. Cut to size leaving room to tear and roll the top and bottom of the paper.  Ink with distressing ink and spray with Stewart Superior Memories Mists ~ Iridescent. Click on picture to enlarge and see the shimmer! Set aside to dry.
Stamp Viva Las Vegastamps! Santa from plate 1363 on tissue paper that has been sprayed with fixative. The fixative keeps the ink from bleeding, any fixative will work on the tissue.  Heat emboss with Viva Las Vegastamps! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder.  Sparingly paint the beard, mustache and hat fur with white paint, this gives the Stickles a background.  Add Stickles to the beard and hat.  Set aside to dry. 
Find a special key, since this is a magic key.  After the ornament, poem and Santa have dried they are ready to assemble. 
Add a bow and your tag is complete.

Fabulous project and love all the glitter and shine. I think I'll be doing this project with my youngest daughter. She loves to craft and she will get a kick out of the poem.

What an adorable idea! I am definitely making one to send to my granddaughters to use this year. I like your use of paint with the Stickles, too.
