Christmas Tags with Stitched Framelits

As soon as I opened the packages of Karen Burniston's Labels & Stitched Frame dies, I just knew the largest ones would make beautiful tags. 

For this first tag, I cut red Stardream with the largest tag in the Circle and Stitched Labels package. I rotated the die 90 degrees, traced the edge with a pencil, and trimmed the bottom 'arm' off to create  this lovely ornament shape. Easy Peasy! 

I ran the ornament shape through the Big Shot using Karen's 'Trellis & Swirls" embossing folder - the beautiful texture shows up so nicely on the pearlized Stardream. I cut a 2nd Circle Label from white card stock, and used the coordinating stitch die to add the pretty stitching lines.  I stamped the 'TO & FROM' before attaching it to the red tag base.

The poinsettia was die cut from Stampin' Up's Glimmer paper (gold for the flower and red for the flower center). I also added a gold glitter paper punched circle to the top of the tag using a regular hole punch and punched through both layers with a tiny hole punch. That gave me a place to thread the bakers twine.

For my second tag, I broke out that BEAUTIFUL red Glimmer Paper. I just love that paper and have it in all three colours.  I die cut the tag base using the largest Sassy Label Framelit.

My favourite die in the Sassy Label set is the smallest one - it's just so versatile!  I folded it in half and attached it over the top of the tag to give me a loop for threading the twine through.

I cut another, smaller Sassy Label from white card stock and added the stitching with the coordinating die. To make the stitching lines pop a little, I went over them with my Sakura glitter pen - that is fast, it takes just seconds as the stitch lines are already there for you. Then I stamped the words and added the white label to the red glittery one.

I layered on some pretty K&Co Christmas stickers and added some Stickles.

This is one SPARKLING tag - perfect for the holidays and so quick to make with dies!
