Tag time

I love Christmas tags, and is the season to work on them.  One great place for inspiration is the 25 Days of Christmas Tags that Tracy McNeely runs annually on her blog, starting around the first of November.

My tag was inspired by the Santa tag that Tracy made for Day 12 of this year's 25 days.

For my tag,  I cut the tag from a sturdy piece of white card stock.  I place a snippet of red plaid on one side. The Santa is from Hampton Art, stamped on a white snippet, die cut, colored with pencils (Just went back and added color to the berries after noticing I missed it.)  There a touch of glitter on the "furry" parts of Santa's hat.

Originally I was going to do the HoHoHo repeatedly on the white part of the tag, but decided that would be overkill and stuck to one.

Red grosgrain ribbon is the finishing touch.

I'm entering this tag in these challenges:

  1. What an adorable tag! I love that plaid on the side, makes the tag so cozy and Christmasy! I also love your cute Santa and the ho. ho. ho. Hugs, Brenda

  2. Ho Sandy! Or should that be Hi? :)

    LOVE your tag, am playing with plaid/tartan today as it's so Christmassy. Great tag and your Santa looks such a cheerful fella!

  3. I don't know when plaid got to be so Christmas-y but I do like it paired with Christmas stuff. Cute tag!
