Neat & Tangled November Release Week: Day Four and 25 Tags of Christmas

Hello everyone.

Today is Day Four of Neat & Tangled's November release week and we have a special treat today. The Design Team is also participating in the 25 Tags of Christmas event, more information can be found on the Neat & Tangled Blog. (CLICK HERE!).

Also, don't forget to comment here and over on the N&T blog for your chance to win today's giveaway. Giveaway winners will be announced on Friday over on the N&T blog.

To create my tag today I started with a piece of Neenah 110 lb. Solar White Classic Crest cardstock. I used an older tag die from Neat & Tangled but honestly, it's my favorite tag die. It's the Classic Tag 1 die and I will cherish it forever. To make this work, I first stamped the Holiday Wishes Background stamp onto a piece of Neenah that was cut to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. I used Simon Says Stamp Fog gray ink like I have a million times before, because I like it. I absolutely love this background stamp. The font is perfect and I personally love text backgrounds. The tag was then cut out trying to align the text as straight as possible with the die.

The image of the little kid in the snowman costume is from last year's Christmas Pageant stamp set also by Neat & Tangled. I stamped him with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink and colored him with my Copic Markers. I made a Copic color map for you guys (below), although it was rather simple coloring. 

For the sentiment, I stamped the "happy holidays" from the Classic Christmas stamp set from this November's NEW release with Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink and heat embossed it with Ranger White embossing powder. I cut it down into a strip and to change it up a little, I trimmed off one end in a diagonal and had it slightly off the tag. It was popped up onto the tag using Scotch 3M foam tape. 

I added some of the Neat & Tangled Clear Mix sequins coming from behind my image. I feel like this makes it feel a little frozen, lol. I used micro Glue Dots to adhere the sequins in place. 

For the trimmings at the top, I cut a few lengths of red twine, as well as black and white twine. I also cut some black sequined twine. I first added the black and white twin and kept it rather long in length then I added the black sequined twine and cut it much shorter. Then I finished it off by tying the red twine around it all into a pretty bow.

I hope that I've inspired to to create some homemade Christmas tags. If you want to check out more inspiration from the rest of the design team (CLICK HERE!) to both shop and read the blog.
