Hi, everyone! I’ve got more Christmas to share with you, but today, it’s not a card. I’ve made my first gift tag of the season (I need to make many more).
I colored up the cute Kitten Christmas image from Mo Manning with my Copics and used some very dark Ns for the kitten. My sister has a black cat that loves climbing the Christmas tree, and this gift tag is for her. I used a tag die with faux stitching from My Favorite Things for the tag.
I die cut the tag an additional two times, once in a red patterned paper that I glued on the back of my colored piece, and once in a green patterned paper that I offset and glued on the back for a little interest. I stamped the standard To/From (this particular stamp is from Norsk Stempelblad AS) on the green patterned paper using Olive Twist ink from Papertrey Ink.
Underneath the kitten I stamped ho ho ho from the Scripty Xmas stamp set from Mama Elephant, using that same Olive Twist color ink. I added a bit of red lacey ribbon to the hole on the top of the tag, tied a bow around it using a very fine thread that I think is meant for warping looms, it used to be my grandmother’s. I added a little bell charm to the bow, I thought it was a nice finishing touch.
Not a whole lot of colors used for this one, but the image isn’t very big either.
I felt like I really needed to add a photo of the kitten in the tree. She was very content up there.
