Green Grass Stamps Christmas Tags

So, I'm a bit behind in sharing these tags with you today. It being the holiday season, I've been kinda busy. So on with the show! Today, I bring you a few simple tags using the new Green Grass Christmas Stamps and more of the shimmer cardstock I can't seem to ever put down... Started with three die cut tags cut from kraft card stock using the Tag Sale 2 Die and a color combo of Kraft, Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado, Plum Pudding, Lemon Tark, Dark Chocolate & White.
Stamped the same bow (used on this card) from Made With Love, onto white shimmer cardstock. Cut it out and attached to the top of the tag. Stitched a button into place with embroidery floss and left the ends long to allow for it to be tied to a gift.

Onto the bottom of each tag, I stamped an adorable cross stitched scalloped border (which I love!), from Warm Winter Wishes, in Versamark ink and then layered a stamped sentiment on top.
It may be a little hard to tell in the photos, but I love how the shimmer of the paper still shines through the ink, even when stamped with a solid image. It makes the ink appear as if it's shimmery itself.

Here's A Tip: When attaching the hand cut shapes, I adhered the tops directly to the tag and popped the base of the shape up with a couple pieces of dimensional adhesive. Giving the shape a little dimension, but yet the button can be tied through the tag hole, at the top, with out much bulk.
Next up, the tree and star from A Very Jolly Holiday. Stamped the tree in Ripe Avocado and the star on Lemon Tart onto white shimmer cardstock, let it dry, cut out and attached with a Lemon Tart button.
More of that beautiful shine!
Finally, mittens from Warm Winter Wishes stamped in Plum Pudding, onto both the tag and white shimmer cardstock.
To the top, I attached a die cut snowflake, from white shimmer cardstock, using the Peace Be Still Die Collection and stitched a Plum Pudding button through the center.

That's it from me today, hope you enjoy your weekends!
