We're back CASE-ing the Catty again and looking at holiday tags this week.
You may have come here from Jackie's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
This week I have taken my inspiration from this tag on page 39 of the Holiday Catalogue. I love the combination of washi at the bottom and the decorative edge on the top section. I don't have the Cheerful Tags framelits, but I have created my own version of it.
I created my tags using the 'Lots of Labels' framelits, which has given me the decorative edge on the top section. I've used the second largest framelit to create finished tags that are 3" x 2.5" (7.6cm x 6.2cm). You can get 6 of these tags from an A4 sheet of card stock and they are surprisingly quick to make. I have made 3 designs, using the Presents & Pines washi set and the fabulous 'Tin of Tags' stamp set. This is a great stamp set to have for Christmas greetings on cards and tags, even if you don't purchase the 'Tin of Tags' kit.
For the first set of tags I have used the star/snowflake as a background to the greeting and then added some sequins to finish. I stamped off the Mint Macaron so it didn't overwhelm the greeting. It is the washi on the bottom edge that really makes a statement.
For the second set I have used a scroll from the 'Designer Tin of Cards' stamp set to add interest and the splotch from the 'Work of Art' stamp set to provide a background for the greeting.
For the third set I have used the Mint Macaron doily as a background and then layered the greetings over the top.
I hope this has given you some ideas for your holiday tags this year.
