Christmas Tags

Today I have been in a Christmas frame of mind. So decided to make some lovely gift tags.

Lovely As A Tree

On this tag I used the Lovely As a Tree stamp set. I have only recently purchased this set and must admit that I wondered what all the hoohaa was about it. But now that I have it I am in love. It is such a versatile set and well worth the investment. When I first looked at it I had no concept that I could use it as a Christmas set. Just goes to show what a little imagination does.

Lovely As A Tree

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Petite Pairs, Label Love
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Inks: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Artisan Label Punch, Sponge Dauber
Non SU: Single Hole Punch, Cotton Twine

I hope like this tag. There is only something like 9 Saturdays left till Christmas. I am sure it will sneak up on all of us very quickly. Why not start making your cards and tags now so you can tick one thing off the list. Don't forget you can buy everything you need here and get it shipped straight to your door.

Until next time, happy creating and stay safe.
