Time for Tags!

I was sifting through my card box the other day.  I realized that, while I've been making Christmas cards here and there, I had no Christmas tags done.  And I need about three times the number of tags as I do cards at Christmastime.  So, I shuffled through my folders and printed up some goodies to play with.  Then, I inked, and spritzed, and embossed, and painted, and wound up with this tag.



The swirls at the top and bottom of the tag are the ANTLERS from this reindeer stamp!
The holly leaves and berries originally looked like the lower photo.

  • White Card stock
