'Tis the Season

Hi everyone!  I'm back with today's Stamp Simply project, a Christmas card and tag combo featuring pretty plaid papers and some of my favorite Christmas sets.  Definitely 'tis the season to get your handmade Christmas cards and gift tags ready for mailing and gift-giving!  

Graphic 45 papers are always spectacular and this particular design is no exception!  I love the traditional Christmas plaid and how the floral paper includes some not-quite-so-traditional colors.  Certainly makes one think "visions of sugarplums!"    

The tree, stamped with Delicate gold, colored with Copic markers, and painted over with clear glittery Wink of Stella was splashed with diluted gesso and dotted with rhinestones to give it that same sugarplum sparkle.  

A printed tag from the paper pad accents the inside of the card, where there's a lovely holiday season blessing stamped in gold.

The tag was so quick and easy to put together using square dies and a printed square from the G45 paper.  There are several of these, so an assembly-line approach to making multiples would be quite time-saving.  I used a circle die and a Cropadile to make a matching reinforcer for the ribbon.  The sentiment at the bottom says "from our house to yours."    

Supplies, all from Stamp Simply:
