Christmas Tag Card

Just one card from me today - made for the CAS Christmas 'Tag' challenge.

I covered the front of the card with a snippet of red paper, leaving a small margin around the edges.  I attached the robin paper to thin card and die cut and embossed the tag, ensuring the robins were on the top part of the tag.  I placed the tag in my MISTI before stamping and embossing 'Christmas' in the lower corner.  The tag was then attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut 'happy' from brown card and attached it across the tag.  To finish, I made a small bow from brown ribbon and attached it to the top of the tag.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags' and Lawn Fawn 'Scripty Happy' dies
     Practical Publishing 'Opulent Baubles' stamp (the stamp was Merry Christmas, but I cut it in half!).
     Snippets of red paper, robin paper, white and brown matt card, brown ribbon
I am entering the following challenges:
     ABC Christmas Challenge - B for Bingo (Ribbon, Christmas Sentiment, Die Cut)    
     CAS Christmas - Tag
     Crafty Calendar Challenge - Add a Tag
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Anything Christmas or Holiday Related

A wonderful tag card Kath using that beautiful bright red and the pretty dp with the robins on the tag, and finished really well with the large die cut sentiment above the smaller stamped second half which really makes a statement and co-ordinate perfectly with the brown ribbon. x
