I am really enjoying making Christmas Tags this year. They are just small little things that I can experiment on and play with. Also, I bought a lot of fun holiday themed stamped sets this year. I played with colored pencils and kraft paper today.
Extra Details: I started with half a sheet of kraft card stock for these tags. I think it measured 4.25” x 11”. I stamped the adorable deer from Lawn Fawn’s Toboggan Together and Cheery Christmas all over the paper in brown ink. I added the string of lights to one of the deer and filled in the empty spaces with some small snowflakes.
Using white, a light brown, a medium brown, and a light pink, I colored all of the images in. I am just amazed at how beautiful the coloring turned out.
Using some cheap gel pens I found at target, I added some metallic accents to the tags. I added gold to the snowflakes and the Christmas lights. I added silver to the snowflakes. I also added some gold and silver dots to the background.
Once the gel ink was dry, I die cut some tag shapes. I was only able to get five from this size of paper. I found some dotted vellum in my stash and decided to use that for the mini tags. I gold embossed a sentiment on each of the vellum tags. I used natural twine to tie a mini tag to a larger tag and they were done.
