Holiday/ Winter Blog Blitz - Christmas Tag
by Candice Crawford


Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are enjoying your day and our wonderful blog blitz! Today's project  is a quick and easy tag showcasing items from our September release. For those of you who like to get a jump start on Christmas, this clean and simple tag can easily be massed produced for your Holiday gift packaging.


To get started, you will need the second to largest tag frame from the Double Stitch Tag Frames along with our new Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup and Magical Cauldron dies.

First I die cut the Tag and frame from a piece of Kraft card stock using my Gemni Junior die cutting machine. With the tag die cut, I placed the cauldron die in the center of the cards stock ensuring the steam was placed near the top of the tag. I then die cut cauldron from the tag.  


Next I  took the Warm Wishes Gift Card Cup die and cut the cup twice; once from a white piece of card stock and then again from a chocolate piece of card stock. With some scissors I cut the warm wishes sentiment from each of the cups.  With my distress ink blending tool, I color the white cup die cut with some candied apple distress oxide ink and colored the white warm wishes sentiment with mowed lawn distress oxide ink. 


Next I adhered the green colored sentiment onto my candied colored cup with some 3M foam tape. I then outlined the  sentiment with my black micron pen to make the sentiment pop. To assemble the tag, I placed the tag frame and tag onto a piece of white card stock with some liquid glue and trimmed the edges with my scissors. 


I then adhered the cup onto the tag right over the die cut caldron with some 3M foam tape. Don't you just love how the  cup looks as though it has steam coming from it. Next I took the brown warm wishes die cut and placed that onto of the tag just above the cup with some foam tape. To embellish the cup with the appearance of whip cream, I took my Marvy snow marker and brushed some white ink over the sentiment.  Then I heated the ink with my heat gun to make it puff up like whip cream.   


For the finishing touches on the tag, I whole punched a circle at the top of the tag and added some lime green ribbon and christmas theme twine from my stash. I really liked how this tag turned out and how quickly it all came together. 

Thanks for joining me today for this quick and easy Christmas tag. I hope you were inspired to create one or two for yourself.

Great tag!!! I love how you used the cauldron die to create the steam rising from the cup. It is so much fun "mixing and matching" unrelated dies in this way!!!

These tags are so fun and I love how you used it with the warm wishes mug and with the cauldron!
