Christmas Tags Part One

Today I'm sharing 2 of the 6 tags made for the recent UKATC  Christmas Tag swap. 
 
The tag on the left uses a lovely Crafty Individuals' word block stamp on a white tag.  The main background was stamped using Distress Ink in Festive Berries, with the smaller mat heat embossed in white on red card.  The reindeer was die cut from silver mirror card, even though it looks blue.
 
For the green tag I used Tim Holtz faded dots stencil and white moulding paste then added the die cut tree, cut from a Cricut Christmas cartridge, with some added glitter sparkle.  The sentiment you'll recognise from the word block stamp.
 
More tags to come over the next couple of weeks, along with the last ATCs for this year, possibly a 'Journal Your Christmas' page or 2 and whatever else I can find time to make.

Christmas Cards

Although I still do a lot of paper crafting, I don't make many cards these days unless it's for a special occasion and then usually only for close family.  Today however I'm sharing a couple of Christmas 'Thank You' cards.
 
I chose a dotted card mat on white card blanks and used Crafty Individuals' stamps throughout, with Distress Ink in Festive Berries and Broken China.
 
 
For this one I also used Tim Holtz faded dots stencil on the card blank.  The dotted card mat is a light grey although it looks blue in the picture.
 
 
The focal image looks much paler than it is; here's a close-up.
