Vintage Style Holiday Tags

Hello, friends! I have been having fun making Christmas tags for the fast approaching holidays. Some years this gets left to the 11th hour, but I'm getting starting early this time! These tags have a simple yet elegant look, mostly thanks to the gorgeous script font.

I made a set of 8 and they are now available in my shop.  I love how they turned out, I hope you do too! :)

Stamps: Hand Penned Holidays (SU!)
Paper: Very Vanilla (SU!)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tea Dye (PTI)
Embellishments: brown satin ribbon
Tools: Crop-a-dile

Wreath & Swirls card

I have another Wreath for All Seasons card to share today. It started out with the wreath on the lacey circle die and kept going from there. The berries have red glitter on them for a bit of sparkle and the sentiment is from SU!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes, which I cut down into a banner shape.

The background panel was stamped with BB: Sheet Music and also Fancy Flourishes before being run through my Cuttlebug with the Linen & Canvas impression folder. The edges of the Real Red panel were distressed before sewing it all together onto an Always Artichoke card base. It makes for a very worn and vintage look which I love! Both the lacey circle and the sentiment are popped up with foam tape. 

The inside was finished to match with more sheet music and flourish stamps. I hope you like it! Both this card and my previous Wreath for All Seasons card are up in my shop, be sure to take a look! :)
