CASology #121: Christmas Gift Tag with Metallic Die-cut Sentiment
Happy Tuesday! It’s time for a new CASology challenge, and we are showing off Christmas tags along with this week’s cue word, Festive. The fabulous Tracey McNeely is having a fun event over at her blog called the ‘25 Days of Christmas Tags‘, and she invited the CASology team to play along.
I created a Christmas gift tag using a stitched tag die from Pretty Pink Posh. To build my own mini winter scene, I masked off the penguin images and inked the colors using Distress Inks. I chose a gold foil paper to die cut a part of the sentiment using Merry Christmas die from Simon Says Stamp. To complete my sentiment, I stamped “merry” in white using the sentiment from Holiday Sayings stamp set by Hero Arts.
I supposed to make a clean and simple tag, but I couldn’t resist stamping all the tiny snowflakes from Jolly and Merry stamp set by Mama Elephant all over the inked background. *wink*
This is my second tag that I made using same theme. This time I inked slightly light colors for the background and used a silver foil paper for the sentiment die cut. I also fancied up the top of my tag using some white satin ribbon after setting an white eyelet.
Hope you will find time to play along with us at CASology this week, I am so looking forward to seeing your wonderful creations! There is a wonderful prize up for grabs from STAMPlorations and the winner will have a chance to guest design on the next challenge – more details are on the CASology blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!
