Santa Christmas Tag

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well.
It’s a little bit quiet in blog land at the moment. Where is everyone and what ya doin’?   Who is ready for Christmas?  Who is not?  Or, are you like me, sitting on the sofa, hiding behind the cushion…..

Tonight’s little project is a laminated Christmas tag.

The main background of the tag is a piece of sheet music which I painted and then added a few patterns using a stencil.
I then laminated tag and decorated it with some diamonds, created using a stencil, thick gel medium and then glitter sprinkled over the top.
I then sponged some paint around the edges.
The tag was then made up by adding all of the embellishments as seen.

The little Santa embellishment is a stamped domino.
This Santa image is a perfect domino size.
I made the frame using some painted pieces of lollipop sticks.

Crafty Individuals Stamps used: Christmas Santa Smiles CI 136

Thank you for looking.

Take care,

  1. Hi Flo, I keep thinking about Christmas but that’s about as far as I’ve got. I haven’t even decided what design I’m going to use yet for my cards yet, but however soon or late we start, we all get there in the end, don’t we. This is a lovely tag and I really like the green pastel background colour. The layers that you’ve added frame the image beautifully, and it’s a fabulous looking Santa. Happy crafting, Sandra x

  2. What a beautiful christmas tag, love all the dimensions. I have been making christmas cards since beginning of September, unusually advanced for me, then I started crafting with friends, and everything has come to a complete stop! Hopefully after the end of November things will calm down and I can then sort of get back to crafting….she’s says with a pleading look! 🙂

  3. Hello Florence.
    Love, love, love the tag. The domino for the Santa stamp was inspired! Its truly the perfect thing. It gives depth, dimension and a little something different to an already beautiful tag, which brings the whole thing together and gives it that WOW punch.

    Really like the use of the buttons for the berries, and the colours of the background are such a great choice. Although unusual for the time of year, they actually work because they give that icy cold feeling.
    A really GREAT make, Flo. Love it. ~ Cobs.x
