San-tag-stic Christmas!

Good Evening and thanks for popping in by.  Today's card is for CAS-ual Fridays which has a theme this week of "Tag you're it".  Your project is to be clean and simple and include a tag.  I've used 3 tags so mine is a tag tag tag you're it!

This idea came together pretty quickly once I thought of it.  I've used the fantastic new stamp set Tags till Christmas.  The tags were stamped in Real Red and one in Old Olive.  They were punched out with the tag punch and mounted onto a Basic Black tag using the larger punch.  Simples huh?! I used a scrap strip of Real Red (do you have loads of these strips?  I do. I'll have to do a card just with these one day!) and set this behind my Santa tags.  The tags are actually mounted onto Dimensionals.  I stamped Merry Christmas from Loads of Love (now retired) onto the Whisper White picking up just the words I wanted by using my Stampin' Write marker directly onto the stamp.  The Whisper White was mounted onto Basic Black which in turn was attached to my Real Red card base.  Viola job done.  Mmmm not quite.  Next I made an insert using my computer to add a sentiment saying "To someone who dares to stand out.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year".  Not very original I know.

Thanks for coming over.  Enjoy the rest of your evening. x
