Vintage Christmas Tags

I wanted to join Stampin' Celebration with a little mid-monthspiration for December's challenge.  I made a few gift tags for Christmas.


I love the vintage feel of this first tag.  It's kind of hard to tell in the photo, but I used the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the bird to give it some sparkle like the one in the inspiration photo.


And I love playing with the Seam Binding ribbon.  Here, I pulled a single strand down the middle of the ribbon to give it a gathered, "crinkly" look.


Products Used:
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, First Edition DSP
Stamps:  Petite Pairs
Ink:  Crumb Cake
Embellishments:  Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Twine, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, Crochet Trim, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
Tools:  Big Shot, Two Tags Die, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Bird Builder Punch

My next two tags were pretty simple using the Stocking Die.  I love how you can cut two sheets of paper at once and have coordinating pieces for the trim on the stocking! Too cute!


I embossed the stockings and added snowflake stamps using the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stamp Pad (#126857) from the Holiday Mini.  This ink pad will be carrying over into the Spring Catalog!  Yay!
