Namasleigh Christmas Tags




Hi friends! 

This is Miki from @mp.cards and I'm super excited to be joining Gerda Steiner Designs (GSD) as a Guest Designer this month! I have two funny projects to share with you by the end of the month. Today it's all about Christmas tags and I prepared two cute ones for you. 

Please keep reading to find out how I made them.

To start off, I stamped the GSD reindeer and snowman from the Namasleigh stamp set, fussy cut them and colored them in using my Spectrum Noir Illustrators. I then added some white highlights using a gel pen. How funny are these guys in their yoga poses?

For the actual tags I wanted to use some pattern paper. Firstly, I took a tag die and cut it from white cardstock. I then picked a circle die that pretty much matched the size of the tag die. I used the circle die to cut my pattern paper - one with silver accents and one with gold accents. I then picked the next smaller lacey circle die and used it to cut some white cardstock. It was then time to assemble - I glued the pattern paper circles on the tags and added the white lacey circles on top using foam tape.

The next step was to focus on the sentiments. I picked two from the Namasleigh set and embossed them in white on red and green paper. I cut those to size and added them to the tags using foam tape. I did the same for the reindeer and the snowman.

I then spent a good few minutes digging through my huge box of ribbons to pick out the perfect ones. In the end, I decided to use white velvet ribbon for both tags and to add a second, thinner ribbon for added detail (and sparkle!). I picked silver for my silver tag and gold for my gold tag. To finish them off, I added some stunning gems.

I will have a reel on my Instagram tomorrow showing you the process so please make sure to check it out!

I hope you like these tags, I find them super funny! I will see you back here next week with another project!

Sending crafty hugs,
Miki
