Holiday Card Series 2017 – cute tags

White and blue snowflakes on a dark paper background.

Hello Everyone,

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,

  1. Totally adorable tags! What a great idea to add the reinforcers to the top, I wouldn’t have thought of that! So glad you’ve joined us this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge and shared your awesome project! hugs, Maura
