LID:: 25 Days of Christmas Tag



Bring on the holiday crafting! I'm tickled to be participating in Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags Series featuring Lil' Inker Designs. Tracey has gathered up some amazing designers and sponsors for a month long feature of Christmas Tags. If you haven't seen the previous days' tags, please stop by her blog and take a look!


I started out by stamping the gorgeous image from Oh Deer Christmas Stamp with black ink onto watercolor paper. I then lightly colored the image in with traditional colors for the sky and holly, and used a mix of gold and copper for the deer. This was die cut out from Anytime Tags Die Set 2. I also cut the same tag from kraft paper which was embossed with Quilted Swirl Stitched Pattern Cover Plate. I trimmed the outside of the colored image just inside the stitched lines and mounted this to the kraft tag base. I then stamped the deer and image and sentiment onto bright pink paper and trimmed it, which was then mounted over the two tags. I finished with some gold twinkle ribbon and natural twine.

With the holiday right around the corner, let's join together and make some tags and get ahead of the game!

  1. The coloring of the deer looks great.
    Making a fish tail and layering it
    was a good idea.
    thanks for sharing.
