Home for the Holidays Circle Tag Card

Hello! I'm still industriously working on my Christmas card stash, and playing along again with Merry Monday today. I was so excited to be chosen as their winner last week, thanks ladies! This week Sue wants us to add a tag to our card using texture, bling and die cuts. Wow, that is a lot of elements and a little intimidating at first, but I think I managed! 

I had all the little images on my tag already stamped, colored and cut for intended use on another project that didn't cooperate, and they were just the right size for use on a tag. The tag die and embossing folder for the background are new-to-me, and the baker's twine repurposed, right from the bakery.

I even finished off the inside of my card and the envelope, so this baby is ready to go! 

Stamp Sets: Home for the Holidays (Lawn Fawn), Inside Holiday Greetings (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Real Red (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Let's Bokeh in the Snow (Lawn Fawn)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Forever Green (Hero Arts)
Markers: Copic, White Gel Pen (Signo)
Tools: Big Shot, Stitched Rectangles Dies, Stitched Hillside Borders Dies, Stitched Circle Tag Dies, Home for the Holidays Dies (Lawn Fawn), Snowfall EF (Taylored Expressions)
Accessories: Baker's Twine (repurposed), Mini Jingle Bells (Michael's)

So glad you paid me a visit and I hope you have an awesome day!
