Christmas Cards with Tags

Whew! Thanksgiving company has left, the house is clean, and I could get back into my office to photograph some of the cards I've been working on for the past two weeks. If you've visited my blog at any time since CTMH came out with their new Fancy Tag Thin Cuts, you know that I love tags on cards. LOVE them. Today's post has two examples of double tag ideas.

This first one uses colors from the current Color My Heart challenge: Kraft, New England Ivy, and Candy Apple.

I saw this bent tree idea on a blog hop and neglected to copy down the information of who came up with it. Whoever it're a genius! Except for the sentiment, everything on this card uses the current Stamp of the Month: Seasonal Trees (see sidebar for shopping link) which is only $5 with a $50 purchase. The sentiment comes from one of the Flower Market cartridge coordinating stamp sets. Isn't that perfect???

The stripe of red and white paper comes from the 'Tis the Season paper pack. I did a partial die cut with both it and the New England Ivy cardstock to create the tag top, layering them together afterwards. I cut a little too much of the New England Ivy so I just tore off the edge taking advantage of the white core of the cardstock. The piece I had leftover fit perfectly on the bottom, the white core adding another layer of interest. I trimmed the corners with Micro-tip Scissors.

This second card uses the Oh What Fun paper and Felt Compliments. Soooo cute!

The sentiment comes from a stamp set I purchased last year. I'll be featuring more cards using this paper and felt compliments in the next few days, so I hope you'll come back to see them. I made a total of seven cards and am seriously thinking about purchasing several more of the felt compliments because they are so stinkin' cute!
