Fun, Quick Christmas Tags

 Hi all!  It's that time of year that is busy for many of us, and I don't know about your calendar, but mine is full.  Of course, I love every minute of it!!!  

Yesterday was a much needed rainy day in Georgia. It was the perfect day to put on holiday music, get cookies baking and work on gift tags. If you follow me on Instagram, you got a peek of the gift tags.  The tags are simple and come together quickly.  




For the 3" x 3" gift tag, the moose stamped image required "fussy cutting" which took a little extra time but the remainder of the tag was very easy.  The Candy Cane Lane washi tape was stacked on the front of the card and the "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from the Star of Light photopolymer stamp set.  Note:  When adding the washi tape to the card, I use the Stampin' Up! Grid Paper to ensure that the tape is straight.  Position your card so that it's straight, select the washi tape you wish to start with and add it across the card front using the grid lines to ensure it is straight.  I overlap the card with the washi tape and after all layers of washi tape are added, remove from grid paper and trim washi tape along sides of card.  It couldn't be easier!

The reindeer gift tag was very quick...just a little stamping, punching and layering.  Of course, I committed the cardinal sin and didn't check my fingers after stamping and messed up three of the tags with inky fingers which required a redo.  Lesson learned!

Note - many of the stamps and materials used for these tags are part of the current Year-End Closeout sale.  You'll find a majority of the items discounted so head over to my store and order so you don't miss out.

Be sure to check back later this week for another project...
