Christmas Tags

It's that time of year again--The 25 Days of Christmas Tags on Tracey's Blog.  Lots of inspiration & wonderful prizes to be won!  I don't use a lot of tags, but always need a few.  Plus, they can always be added to cards.  One of the first tags to catch my eye was made by Anita on Day 1.  I love the traditional red & green, but unexpected leaves instead of trees.  Instead of stamping, I used MFT Layered Leaves die cuts. 
The solid leaves were colored with 3 green Zigs & the top layer was die cut from gold paper.  I used red textured cardstock for the noel from SSS Joyeux Noel.  The tag is made with Poppystamps Tunnel Tags & the twine has been in my stash forever.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & CAS-ual Fridays.

I was also drawn to Svitlana's tag on Day 5 with the beautiful natural look of kraft with brown & white.  I have several evergreen branch stamps, but decided to use the mistletoe image & sentiment from Hero Art's Happy Holly Days. 
The tag is die cut from MFT Fishtail Flags & I used HA Cup O' Joe ink along with white pigment ink.  The splatters were done with white paint & I thought the white grosgrain ribbon tied with twine fit the natural look.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & HLS Christmas Challenge.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  1. I love both tags and the nature look of them. Leaves and mistletoe are such natural elements and I love them on your tags. I'm off to P&P today to pick up felt.

  3. Hey Greta! What a great idea to use non Christmas images in Christmas colors! You don't even need to have Christmas stamps (not that that would be a problem for any of us, hahaha) Love your tags!

  11. Two lovely tags Greta. I like the mottled look you achieved with the green leaves and the gold outline makes them pop. The neutral one is truly elegant with the grosgrain ribbon. Thanks for the inspiration.
