Jolly Santa Christmas Tag Tutorial and Vintage Card

Hello friends!
I thought this was tag #10 of my 12 tags of Christmas but I was looking back through my posts and realized a skipped #7! Whoops!!!!
So this is Tag #7!

Cut your tag shape to 3x6 or take a manila tag and a Santa image. I am using the Jolly Santa digi stamp from my Sugar Kissed Cottage Digi Stamp store on etsy.
I printed him and colored him in using Copic markers.

Ink the top and bottom of the tag with red ink. I used Festive Berries Distress Ink.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the tag and tear the top and bottom, then adhere to the tag.

Ink a doily with Vintage photo Distress ink and adhere to the center.

Cut a banner shape from a scrap of pink patterned paper and ink the edges with red ink. Adhere to the center.

Take a white gel pen and add stitch lines around the edges of the tag.
Tie a pink ribbon through the top of the tag and add a Christmas tag to the top. I use this fun little gold and red glittered bell sticker that I found at Michaels from the Martha Stewart Christmas line.

Add a strip of mini red pom poms to the bottom of the tag.

Cut holly leaves from sheet music and ink with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Adhere to the tag. Add a pink paper rose to the holly leaves.

Add a couple paper snowflakes around the tag.

Add your Christmas sentiment.

It's done! A quick tag to make that would look so cute attached to your Christmas packages!

I also wanted to share this vintage Christmas card with you today!
I love this one! The grey background the looks so pretty with the black and red colors!

Wishing you a wonderful start to your week, Lindsey

Love your tag - I have so much to learn about inks and dies, etc. but that's going to be my January project. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks, Lindsey, for the pretty tag. I needed something special for a friend and this will do nicely!

You know if I tried to make this darling card I would goof it up. I will show this to my grand-daughter, she is good at everything. Hope you two have a nice Christmas and thank you for coming by, I love your header.

That has to be one of the cutest Christmas tags I have ever seen. I do love the look of the vintage Christmas cards, they bring back the magic I used to feel at Christmas time as a kid. Thanks for the sweet comment on my last post about Cody. I fear I have been a terrible blogging buddy of late, and have not gotten around to visit everyone as much as I would like to. Want to wish you and your families a Very Merry Christmas. ~Debby
