Christmas Tags

I have a couple of tags I made that will going on my Guys' packages. 

For the Tree Tag I hand cut the tag shape to 5 1/4" x 2 1/2" out of Kraft card stock.  I stamped the large snowflake from Snow Swirled and smallest snowflake from Delightful Decoration onto the background of the tag, then used a marker for the faux stitching.  I stamped the tree onto white card stock in Soft Suede ink then hand cut the tree out.  Out of Kraft card stock I cut another tree and used a marker for the faux stitching lines.  From red card stock I punched the round tab then stamped the large snowflake again.  I punched the small snowflake from red using the 3/4" circle punch.  I added the snowflake eyelet to the top of the tag with the red yarn. I stamped Merry Christmas then punched it out. A little bit of green zig zag ribbon and a few pearls to finish off the tag.  There are actually a few pearls in the tree - they are hard to see in the picture.

For the Dasher tag I cut two shapes out of Kraft and one red card stock.  I stamped Dasher in the center of one of the Kraft shapes and used the same snowflake stamps for the background on the other Kraft and red shape.  I stamped my sentiment and punched it out then layered it onto a punched piece of white card stock.   This is glued to the star shape and a gold brad holds it to the shapes. The holly leaves and berry were cut and inked then layered onto the tags. 

Thanks for stopping by.
