Signs of Santa, Santa's Workshop, Christmas Gift Tag

It's time to take a break from making cards so I could make some much needed gift tags. These were fun to make too. All I need to do is add the string or ribbon and it's ready for the package!

The base of this tag is a scrap piece of Real Red card stock. I stamped it using black Memento ink on the "Buffalo Check" background image.  When I made more of these, I used a 4" x 4" piece of card stock so I could get two with one stamping.  I find some background stamps difficult to work with.

I used the "Scalloped Tag Topper" punch on one end of the tag. 

Next I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 2-3/4" x 1-3/4".  I used the white chalk marker and made dots on the piece. I taped this to the tag.

I die cut the elf from the "Santa's Workshop" Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP).  I cut this little guy from the paper first using a scissors. I didn't want to go to my cutter to do this because I would end up cutting through another image that I want to use on a different tag or card in the near future.  In rough cutting this little guy out I had a couple of small fuzzy snowflakes with it. I did fussy cut those out but they were easy because it was all straight cutting and just snipping.  I die cut the elf and set him in place on the Crumb Cake piece using Dimensionals. 

I found a Dazzling Diamonds snowflake in my stash. Oh, who am I kidding, it was on my worktable under a bunch of stuff!!! LOL  I set that snowflake in place in the upper left corner using a small glue dot.  I also set the other two snowflakes in place using glue dots.

I punched out the banner from the "Duet Banners" punch using Whisper White card stock.

The words are from the "Signs of Santa". I stamped it using black Memento ink.  I set that banner in place using Dimensionals.  I regret it now because it's more difficult to write a name on it.  Fortunately I didn't put all of my tags together yet, just this one so I could show you today.

And for a final touch I added a rhinestone to the upper left snowflake and the tag was done.  Cute isn't it?  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
