Terrific Tag Tuesday: Yuletide Joy

Hi All! Welcome to the first of three Terrific Tag Tuesdays brought to you by the Kraft-y Hearts. As the name suggests, each Tuesday, from now until Christmas, we will be featuring a little tag for your inspiration that could be used for gifts, decor, or anything you wish! If you haven't been by From My Bungalow to see the beautiful creations by Lynn Darda, you'll want to pop on over after you get done here. I guarantee you'll be inspired!

Now on with the tag!

To kick off Terrific Tag Tuesday, I thought I'd create something that could be used to dress up a gift or (as is the destiny for this one) a bottle of wine.

To create this tag, I used the layering tags dies by Hero Arts. I cut tags from Kraft and White Daisy cardstocks and Oh Deer! patterned paper using the largest die in the set. I layered the Kraft and patterned papers together and then cut some snow banks from the white tag. I stamped the sentiment from Close To My Heart's Retired October 2016 Stamp Of The Month onto one of the snowbanks in Sea Glass ink. I then used the tree die from the Woodland Wishes thin cuts bundle to cut trees from Fern and Ponderosa Pine cardstocks. I layered everything up with foam tape and added White Enamel Accents to the trees. When the Enamel Accents were dry, I added a little reindeer from the Oh Deer! compliments using foam tape.

After I was done I felt like the tag could use a little sparkle, so using the tags die set, I die-cut hole reinforcers from White Glitter Paper and added them to the front and back of the tag. I also added some shimmer pen to the tops of the snowbanks.

Finally, I created a hanging loop from some silver and natural bakers twine I had in my stash. And there you have it!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here's that tag one more time:

I hope you enjoyed my little tag. It was pretty easy to make and would make a fun little ornament as well.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to pop on over and see what Lynn has for you inspiration at From My Bungalow!

Have a wonderfully creative day!
