Christmas Wishes Gift Tag

Elegant Christmas Wishes Gift Tag

Pour yourself some eggnog ... it's time for a little Christmas cheer! This gorgeous holiday tag in non-traditional colors is going to make a real statement on someone's present under the tree.

With so much inspiration from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog and a *few* new products that have arrived in the studio, I didn't need any prompting to dive right into holiday projects. My gift tag for today, however, is for the Holiday Gift Tag Challenge over at Moxie Fab World.

I couldn't wait to use this beautiful patterned paper from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper collection. I had a piece of the Bermuda Bay ribbon lying on my desk and I just knew that this paper would look stunning paired with Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana! Am I right? Or am I right?

I also wanted to use the Adorning Accents Edgelit on the tag, so that determined my tag size of 3" x 5-1/2". The patterned paper and a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock were both die-cut using the edgelit to create the pretty border layered over Coastal Cabana cardstock.

Easy to create scallop circle paper flowers

The paper flowers are created using the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle punch (3 layers per flower), scrunched and spritzed into shape. The shiny leaves underneath were cropped from the new Silver Foil Sheets using the Bird Builder Punch.

TIP: The Foil Sheets (available in gold and silver) are similar to cardstock with foil on one side. The 12" x 12" sheets come two per package and are acid free. They can be cut, punched or die-cut.

Trendy tickets with Christmas wishes for cards, tags, and gifts

The little tickets were stamped using the That's The Ticket stamp set and cropped using the coordinating Ticket Duo Punch.

What's a gift tag without some ribbon? I added skinny taffeta in Bermuda Bay (trimmed with white) and classy satin/organza in Whisper White.

Pass the eggnog. (I'll take mine spiked, please!)

xoxo
