I am so behind with my Christmas tags this year, last year I made like 20 different designs for my mum’s colleagues. This year this is the first one 🙂
I started with die cutting some white tags (MFT Blueprints Tag Builder) from very heavy weight cardstock. I stamped the cute dog from the MFT Santa Paws set on them and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I used a bit of Gamsol to blend the colours (first time to use this product and I love it!)
Then I added a Hungarian sentiment on the back stamped with Altenew Parrot ink. Such a beautiful green shade!
I added a strip of glitter wrapping paper to the bottom and a stitched strip of dark brown cardstock. I also die cut the reinforcers from metallic brown and the glitter wrapping paper and glued them on the front and back of the tags.
As a finishing touch, I added a bit of Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to the collar and the Santa hat and a bit of glossy accent on the nose and jingle bell. A little gold string finished it off.
I will upload this project to several challenges: SSS Monday Challenge It’s a Stitch up, SSS Wednesday Challenge Furry friends and also to the MFT Blueprints Construction Challenge Holiday tags.
I hope you like my tags and will return soon. I will try to post more often, there is a lot to share and time is flying.
See you hopefully tomorrow,
