25 Days of Christmas Tags - Tag 22



I have been loving the reindeer images in the Hero Arts set I bought at Michael's last week, the number is CL540.  A great set to use with Copic markers.  This reindeer is bigger than most standard tags and I really didn't think I could tackle those antlers to fussy cut.  So I created a custom tag. To miter my corners evenly I cut one side, flipped the cut piece over and held it over the opposite corner where I could see exactly where I needed to cut.  In creates perfect mitered corners.


Cardstock:  White (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Reindeer (Hero Arts CL540) Santa Notes(Neat and Tangled)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
other: Christmas twine (Divine Twine), Assorted Copics


Tonight after school my daughter and I baked 72 cookies for the family cookie exchange on Sunday.  I tried this new recipe for Candy Cane Blossoms and I promise they were so yummy.   




While we were baking my son was at a job interview for Target Canada.  We don't have Target in Canada, but we are getting it after Christmas--Woo Hoo.  Long story short he got the job, his first part time job!

So glad you showed personal pictures--what a bonus. Those cookies look so festive, and Brooklyn is just adorable (the dog, too). I love your idea for the tag. You know, I just got that reindeer set, too, and I was struggling about how to use the leaping reindeer on a tag. So, thanks for showing me how. It looks great with those extra images from Neat & Tangled. Like they were made for each other.

Really lovin' all your Christmas tags, Tracey! But this one is just adorable! And those blossoms look so pretty and absolutely delish! I found a recipe for one with the pumpkin Kisses but didn't get a chance to try it this season.

Kelly Griglione said...

Hey, your reindeer sweater matches your cookies! Well I guess since they're so Christmas-y that's not too much of a coincidence, but they sure do look good together. Fun tag! And when your Target opens up, hurry on over to the office supplies section and pick up a pack of their Up! brand "decorative tape!"
