Christmas Tags

Is everyone enjoying the last little bit of summer before autumn sets in? I'm trying to but I thought I'd better get started on making some Christmas items as it's only 115 DAYS ! Yikes, I need to get a move on. I have made a few cards already but I also like to make tags for some of my presents too. This is what I came up with today...

These four are going in my Etsy shop, the rest are reserved for family presents.
I began with Blue and White cardstock and stamped the filigree pattern in Broken China distress ink randomly around the edges, then I went back and stamped the same stamp in Versamark ink and embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer 'Aurora Crystal Sparkle' embossing powder. Here is a close up...

It doesn't show up on this picture very well (note to self... Ask Santa for a decent camera this year...) but it gives the edges a lovely twinkling festive sparkle. Lets try this picture.....

 Then I added some Martha Stewart punched snowflakes, gemstones, organza ribbon bows, and a beautiful silver snowflake charm. There is plenty of room to write my Christmas messages on them too. Tomorrow I'm hoping to create some Santa themed ones so look out for that post.
Hope you are all getting your Christmas items made too....don't forget, only 115 days!
See you all soon

These are really pretty tags, I love the soft colours and sweet little charms too!

Thanks Kelly, I like pale blues and Lilacs for Christmas colours more than the traditional red and green.
