Handmade Christmas Present Tags
I had a blast yesterday afternoon making this card and Christmas present tags. I really love doing the Stampin’ Up! crafts because their stamp sets are so beautiful and all of their items are really high quality. The colors that they offer are beautiful and beautifully paired too which really allows for some creative juices to flow. The above card I made for some new friends of ours. Glenna, my friend, is someone who really likes vintage-y type things and I’ve tried to accomplish the look with this card.
Here’s the envelope I made too, though it’s a bit busy, I like how it turned out using the two stamp sets. The stamp canceller up in the corner says on the top “Santa Post” and the date is Dec. 25th, below that it says “North Pole.” Pretty cute eh?
Here’s a gift tag I made for my mother-in-law for her highly secret present (she might read the blog so I’ll just leave it at that).
And here’s the stamp sets I used for the above cards. The one to the far left (which is hard to see), has the reindeer, ice skaters, stamp canceller, the beautiful scrolled snowflake and a couple of other stamps which I don’t use as much, though they are just as neat. But, the stamp sets are “Winter Post,” “Peaceful Wishes,” and “Lovely as a Tree” in that order. They are by far my favorites to work with at this time of year. One of my favorite things to do is put the ice skaters in front of that line-up of trees and then put glitter on the trees. An absolutely gorgeous card!
And this tag is the one I wanted to share with you the most. I made it for Hubby, since he likes to pick on my horses A LOT, so I got him a really cool present and then put the horse’s names on it. I personalized it with their coloring too… Doesn’t it look like them?! I’m pretty excited about it… Almost more so than what’s behind it! 😀
Merry Eve of Chrismas Eve everybody! Have fun finishing up your wrapping and tidying up the house! I will. 🙂
