Today is our 1st day of our 5 Days of Christmas! We all will be showcasing some quick & EASY tags!
Tag are one of my favourite things to make! And I had a lot of fun with this one!!

I used the scalloped tag from the Tag Dies Set to create this card. I die cut 2 and glued them together to give stability but also so the lovely stitching detail would be on both sides. I went for a vintage look by adding some burlap cardstock. I've had this stuff for years and just rediscovered it! I die cut the largest star from the 3 Star Stitched Die Set (which I've been using a lot lately) from the burlap as well as partially cut the tag die to have a bit of a topper on the tag.

For a bit of shine, I die cut the medium star from some gold cardstock and layered the two together. To bring the festive element in, I die cut a flower and leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flower and Leaves Dies and used Distress Inks to add colour.

The sentiment comes from the recently released Just A Little Something Stamp and Die Set. I used the same Distress Ink (Barn Door) to stamp it. Because Distress Ink doesn't stamp all that well, I used my Mini Misti so I could do multiple impressions. I also stamped the "to" and "from" on the reverse side of the tag.


Although, this wasn't super quick to make, it came together easily! And would look great on any gift!
