As the holiday season is absolutely upon us, I thought it would be nice to put up some gift tags and a few holiday cards... so here we go!

First up is a Christmas card but with non-traditional colors. I wanted something that was elegant and neutral-- I used a metallic cream as my card base, matted with Kraft cardstock and then embossed the top layer. Above that, I cut by hand 3 triangles, embossed and embellished with pearls and mounted with dimensional adhesive. The hint of blush color was neatly 'tied in' with the bow and the small tag with "Merry Christmas" to finish it off. Next is a tag,

The base is from Spellbinders label 8 and then topped with a scalloped circle, 13/4 inch in size. The strung lights are from a Bo Bunny Christmas stamp set and then "to" and "from" are from Papertrey Ink's "From Me to You" stamp set. 

This was a bit more organic with the added raffia and simple font used but I think simplicity really adds to the tag.

This tag has the argyle design in the back and topped with a label that I painted with distress inks, Red Barn and Pine Needles and then sprayed heavily with water.

These were fun to make and absolutely useful for the holidays! I have more coming so stand by. :)

Craft on!
