WMSC#62-Sewing Box Christmas

I guess I have officially started the holiday season as I brought out my holiday stamp equipment along with my great big box of paper, stamps and punches.  Today I made a tag for Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge #62 which is a tag.  Yesterday, I made a card with a tag on it.  Today, I made a tag all by itself.  First, here is the sketch by Anya Schreier:
Here is my tag:

For this card I decided to use Sewing Box Christmas.  

Sewing Box Christmas

So many images to choose from, but for this one, the holly image won out.  I stamped it on some patterned paper by DCWV called the Christmas Combo, all left over from last Christmas.  I stamped the holly twice and cut the layers out and popped them up with dimensionals.  The holly berries are also a little circular image from Sewing Box Christmas stamped on more of the Christmas Combo Paper.  The striped holly layer, big surprise, Christmas Combo Paper too.  I zig zag stitched around the edges and layered another identical white tag to the back to hide the stitching.  I cut a few little banners to stamp my sentiment on and attached them with little mini clothespins dyed with food coloring.  The final touch was a little bow tied with my bow easy.  I love this tag and will have to think long and hard whose present to attach it to.  Thanks for taking a look at my first little bit of Holiday spirit for the 2011 season.

Oh, this is just so cute. Love your little clothes pins, and how cleverly you used the patterned paper. Almost, almost makes me wish I could celebrate Christmas (guess I could still make the tags and cards, huh?)

I love this tag! Seriously, there is not one thing I don't love about it. The colors are fun and cheerful, the stamped leaf is the perfect embellishment, and the mini clothespins are so adorable!
