Christmas Gift tags with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Happy Holidays".

I'm not really a gift tag maker, but this time Ive got a purpose for it and made this trio of Christmas gifts. I started with Heavystock and 3 different colors of Distress: Distress Ink Weathered Wood, Speckled Egg, Distress Oxide Iced Spruce. I cut the Tree Line out of a metallic envelope, I wanted something shimmery that matched the background. Darkened the edges with Walnut Stain and applied snow with Degrade de Points stencil and Texture Paste.


When the Texture Paste was dry I cut the card into 3 pieces and made them into tags. Tim Holtz's Sidekick includes a cutting die set with a reinforcer and numbers. The numbers are also included in the Classic Lower Alphabet cutting die set. I provided both with Distress Ink Barn Door and Fired Brick. To add a nice focal point, I used the little deer from the Winter Wonderland, unfortunately this set is no longer available, but there are many others great deer dies available at Simon Says Stamp, like this one.
