Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge 'Gift tags'

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Cindy who is joining us as a new follower this week.

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

It is time for our new challenge over at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and this week Judy is hosting a 'Gift tag' challenge, which is being sponsored by Bugaboo.

I used their Santa's sleigh tag

On this one, I just printed it on to cream card, cut it out, inked the edges and finished it with a gem for Rudolph's nose and some twine.

For this one, I made a gift card holder and used some embossing paste and a stencil to add some texture. I then printed the tag twice, once onto plain card and once onto patterned paper, before cutting them out and layering them with some foam dots. Another gem ( I feel a compulsion to add one whenever I see a reindeer!), and some ribbon finished it off.

This one was printed and the centre tag was cut out and layered onto a different shaped tag to give an elegant black and white look with some fancy ribbon.

For my final item, I took the tag image into my Silhouette Studio software and was able to isolate Santa and his sleigh and enlarge them before cutting them out on my Cameo.

I then made a simple Christmas card to match that last tag, by cutting some hills and embossing them with a snowflake embossing folder, and adding a sentiment. I have to say I am still loving my Cameo, and I really enjoy seeing what I can do with the software. There is no way I could have fussy cut all those reindeer!

Here they are all together:-

I'd like to enter these into
