25 Days of Christmas Tags With CAS-ual Fridays

Hello Everyone!! This is my second post for the day. If you want to see my Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge post, please go here.

Today I am so excited to be joining the 25 Days of Christmas Tags over at Tracey McNeely's blog. I LOVE browsing through all the fun tags every year and this year I get to join in with CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!!!


For my tag, I chose to use CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Christmas Sparkle" and "Holly Jolly Borders" stamp sets to make my tag. 



My inspiration? The peppermint sticks under the tag!!

To start, I stamped a diagonal border with red dye ink onto white card stock with the "Holly Jolly Borders" set. I then die cut the tag with the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Ornament Tag" Fri-Die.


Next I die cut a white circle with the large ornament tag and stamped the "no peeking" sentiment in green ink using the "Christmas Sparkle" stamp set. I adhered the striped circle onto some acetate and used a scrap of foam from packaging to give the tag the dimension needed for the different colored sequins that I included in the shaker part of the tag. I didn't use a ton of sequins as I wanted the sentiment to be seen.


I added a little ornament topper, also die cut using the "Ornament Tag" Fri-die.  My last step was to tie bits and pieces of ribbon, twine and fibers to make a little embellishment at the  top of the tag. 

I want to thank Tracey McNeely for doing this fabulous series and letting CAS-ual Fridays Stamps contribute!!

Thank you for stopping by today!! I hope my tag inspires you to make some of your own!!
