Merry Christmas!

I think I'm finally done with all my Christmas preparations...the shopping is done...the cookies are baked...the gifts are even wrapped! I can relax and enjoy some time visiting with family. Since I've been so busy getting ready for Christmas, I haven't had a chance to post here in a while. I'm sure you've all been busy too! I haven't done much stamping this week, but here's a quick ornament card and some cute Santa tags I forgot to share. We did these as make & takes at my group meeting last week.
I cut 2 large scallop shapes from Baja Breeze card stock using my Big Shot and the Bigz Scallop die. I then cut a large circle from Not Quite Navy card stock using the Coluzzle. The tree and snowflakes from Season of Friendship were stamped in White Craft ink. I went back and highlighted the snowflakes with my Stardust Jelly Roll pen for some quick sparkle. Probably the hardest thing about the card was cutting out the little bird. He's stamped in Riding Hood Red and attached with a pop dot.

The two scallops are joined by attaching them to a folded tab punched out of Brushed Silver. A Jumbo Eyelet is attached through the front layer only so that the card opens easily. Then just add some silver cord and a bow attached with a glue dot.

Here's a couple of adorable Santa gift tags my upline showed us how to make.
I love the texture created by the crimper and the swirly embossing folder! The one on the left opens up as a gift card. The one on the right also opens...the beard is made up of a folded scallop punch. Both are created using various sizes of circle punches, and the small Santa is made using the scallop punch. These would also be cute as embellishments for a scrapbook page of used on a card, wouldn't they?

Have a very merry Christmas!!!
