Santa Tag

This fun Christmas tag by Rachel was created with our SANTA CLAUS and CHRISTMAS EVE stamp sets.

[Tutorial] ‘Santa Claus is coming to town…’ Not long to go until we look to the skies for sight of those reindeer! I’ve teamed up the fab ‘Santa Claus’ stamp set with the ‘Christmas Eve’ set.

To begin my make I ‘smooshed’ ‘Hickory Smoke’ and ‘Tumbled Glass’ distress oxides onto a craft mat and sprayed with water. I then dipped a tag sized piece of white card into both inks to create a random speckled effect. This was then dried with a heat gun before ‘Stormy Sky’ distress ink was blended around the edges of the tag.

Using Versafine Clair ‘Morning Mist’ grey ink I then stamped the stars & buildings scene from the ‘Christmas Eve’ stamp set onto the background before adding a small Christmas tree in Versafine ‘Nocturne’ black ink. 

On a separate piece of card the main images from the ‘Santa Claus’ stamp set were stamped in Versafine Clair ‘Nocturne’ black ink before heat embossing with Wow superfine clear gloss embossing powder. These were then coloured in using Stabilo aquacolor watercolour pencils and fussy cut out.

‘Ho’ from the same set was then stamped 3 times onto white card using the same ink and heat embossed using Wow superfine clear gloss embossing powder before being fussy cut out. These were then mounted onto black card. All the elements were then added to the tag background with either acrylic glue or 3D mounts.

Finally, the tag was added to a black background. 3 pieces of ribbon were then added to complete the tag and some glossy accents added to Santa’s piercing blue eyes. A perfect little tag to brighten up any gift this year! Rachel ♡
