For my tags I decided to take a vintage approach.

To create these tags I first diecut all my images for my scene out of white and colored cardstock. I die cut the trees out of Pine, the buildings out of Cranberry and the snowman and snow out of Dove White. I then modified the snowmen by cutting off their arms and then colored a hat, eyes and buttons with a black marker. To finish the snowmen I then die cut a second snowman out of Cranberry cardstock, cut off the arms and then glued one to the snowmen’s neck to make a scarf.

Next, I die cut the church and house out of Pitch Black cardstock. I then placed a piece of washi tape to the backside the Cranberry buildings and then inlaid the Pitch Black door and windows. Next I die the tags out of Palm cardstock and then ink blended the bottom half with Forever Green Core Ink. I then thoroughly dried the tags with my heat gun and then stamped and black heat-embossed a sentiment.

Next, I splattered the tags with watered down Unicorn Pigment Ink to create the look of falling snow. Lastly I finished the tags by adhering the die cuts with foam adhesive and liquid glue.

My next set of tags features the adorable Santa Gift Tag Fancy Die set. This die set is just one of the many incredible add-ons from this release.

To create these tags I first die cut the body of the Santa out of Antique Linen and Woodland cardstock. Then with the same die I die cut the eyes out of Pitch Black cardstock. I then placed a small piece of washi tape behind the eyes and then inlaid the black eyes. Next I partially die cut the body, stopping just before the eyes, out of Dove White cardstock.

I then lined up one of the previous die cut bodies over the partially cut one and then traced the around the rest of the head and hat. I then trimmed the rest out with scissors and then adhered the white cardstock body to the backside of either the Antique Linen and Woodland bodies.

Next I die cut the remaining elements of the Santa out of Dove White, Cherry, Pitch Black and Shamrock cardstocks. I then adhered all the elements onto the Santas. Lastly I finish the Santas by die cutting the belt buckle out of mirrored gold cardstock and adhering to the tags.
