Scandinavian Christmas Tags
Here's a tag my club is making on Sat. I cut an Old Olive and a Naturals White oval using the CM cutting system. I stamped the mitten image from Scandinavian Season in red, and folded the paper in half at the bottom of the mitten, then cut out. The mittens actually open up to write the recipients name or a small message.
This is my favorite one. I used Kraft CS for the base, it's cut 3x6 and folded in half. I cut a square of Ski Slope DSP for the background, and glued down after sponging the edges in Chocolate Chip ink. The Poinsettia's (I hope that's spelled right) are made using the star image from Scandinavian Season and punched with the 5 Petal Flower punch (I actually discovered this myself!!!) to make the pattern on the flower petals (it has to be angled just right to fill up the punch). Then I pinched the ends of the petals and used glue dots to put two of them together, with a punched Old Olive piece underneath for leaves. Couldn't find dark brads, so I made dots with a Chocolate Chip marker, and topped with dots of Crystal Effects. I love the look of this tag.
I like this one, too. I used Baja Breeze and cut it 6.5x2.5 and scored at 3". I used the slit punch on the long end and out of the short end, punched a scallop circle out of the blue. Then I punched a Very Vanilla scallop, and glued down where the other scallop opening is. Used the snowflake from Scandinavian Season and punched out and layered on top. There are stickles all over the snowflake. The TO/FROM info is written under the scallop inside..
So, I used only ONE stamp set, except for the Merry Christmas, which is from Holidays & Wishes. Now to make a card for the meeting!!! Sorry the pics aren't the best, it's been raining here and I am short on time. Hope you like the tags!!!
