Christmas Tag


This week the Caardvarks Challenge is to Create a NEW Holiday gift tag or mini card that incorporates stamping! 

The body of my tag is a  manila shipping tag.  I covered it with a piece of design paper from the Basic Grey`"Eskimo Kisses" paper pad.  I had a piece of mesh that I cut to the same size as the tag.  It was run through a sticker machine then placed on top of the design paper.  I like the texture it gives the tag.  I cut a piece of burgundy card stock to attached to the back of the tag to give it a more completed finish. 

The Cardinal is one of the stamps in the JustRite "Christmas Treasures" stamp set.  I stamped it twice and colored both with Copic markers.  The bird and the two sections of holly were cut out of one of the images so they could be attached with dimensionals over the design.  The birdhouse was cut out with an oval Nestability and sponged with yellow ink prior to taking it out of the die.  Holes were punched in each scallop.  The design was then attached with dimensionals onto the tag.  A narrow strip of burgundy card stock was placed at the top of the design paper then a narrow piece of lace attached with ScorTape along the bottom edge.  The poinsettia was attached with dimensionals then yellow rhinestones placed in the center.   The tag had a hole in the top of it but I had covered it up with the mesh and the burgundy card stock placed on the back.  It was punch out again with a 1/4" punch so I could attach ribbon through it.  I still needed to have my "To and From" so used a tag from the JustRite "From Our House" set.  It was colored, cut out around the design, and also backed with burgundy card stock.  A small hole was punched in one corner and it was attached with ribbon.  There is a glue dot dimensional under the left side of it to hold it in place.

I always make my Christmas tags so this is the first one compelted.  I love all the dimensional on it. 

Thanks again for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.
