Card and Tag combo



Here I used three stamps from the new Paper Artsy Noel 2 plate to create a simple to make card and coordinating tag.

This duo could also look more masculine if needed by tying a knot instead of a bow, or using knotted string instead of ribbon.



Thanks for stopping by. I hope you've had a good weekend. Apart from making the above, I've been making lots of gift tags from all the scraps from my Christmas cardmaking today. I always run out of tags every year. Will show you a few during the week if you like. :0) Only simple but cost next to nothing in time and money.

Lovely tag and card, Jo! I'm so jealous--you're busy thinking up ways to use scraps from your Christmas cards, while I'm still trying to get the darned things done!!!! Would love to see some of your tags--I need all the inspiration I can get at this point. Desperation is beginning to set in!!!

These are truly beautiful, Jo. I love the colours and that stamp is gorgeous. Would love to see your tags, I never seem to have time to make tags so to see some inspiration would be great.
Thank you for your lovely comments.

Gorgeous set Jo. I love how you combine the elements, in this case quite simply but with such class and elegance.

Could I ask where you got the lovely little frame. It's perfect for the Santa image.
