25 Tags of Christmas




Simon Says Stamps are one of the companies that has sponsor this event and ask the Design Teams to contribute if they can.  I am a bit worried my photography skills are rubbish and dressing my card photo area is non existent, so I found my Santa pepper pot to give me a hand. (it still not very professional)
                                          
I did like how my tag worked out and it would have been quick but you see those dots in the top of the tag I only die cut them specially to be stuck in the holes. I did make it easier by putting doublesided tape on the back of the red card but they are really tiny and for speed I won't be doing that again, especially the last one disappeared and I had to cut another lot to finish.

My tags are Stitched Dress Up Tags and you can't go far wrong using red and white. I used same inkpad and gold powder as below to stamp the Simon Say Stamp Christmas Toys sentiment which is a favourite of mine.

Now for quickness I used the new Poinsettia stamp and die set using an Versamark inkpad and gold embossing powder I made two flowers. One I cut using the die and the other to cut round to layer on top.

I used a pen to round my petals, stuck the bottom one in the centre to the tag and put some 3d foam squares, I actually cut them in half and placed one in the centre of each petal and used small bit of American craft red tape in the centre, this helps to lift petals. To finish some red pearls or white ones that you can colour with copics and some gold twine I found in my stash.
