12 Tags of Christmas 2021

Hi friends, today I'm super excited to be guesting with my friends at Ellen Hutson for Day 10 of the 12 Tags of Christmas 2021 event! Of course you all know how much I love making Christmas tags! 

Today's tag is inspired by the Christmas Carol The 12 Days of Christmas. For my tag I created a stocking filled with 12 presents, one for each of the 12 days and presents that are a bit more affordable the gifts given to their true love in the song! 

Starting off I stamped the stocking from the Sweet Surprises set with VersaMark ink on red cardstock and embossing it with Wow Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder. I used the Sweet Surprises dies to cut the stocking out. All 12 gifts were stamped and gold embossed on a variety of coloured cardstock using images from Sweet Surprises and the Holiday Sprigs sets. The little bear was stamped in black and clear embossed. 

All the tiny images were die cut with the Sweet Surprises dies and Holiday Sprigs dies. I cut the round tag from the Farmhouse Tags die set with white cardstock and gold embossed some stars from the Holly Jolly Chirstmas set. The red stocking was attached to the tag and embellished with tiny gold jingle bells tied on with my favourite May Arts metallic gold string. This is my go to string for tag making.
