For this Challenge I created two Christmas tags using kraft cardstock from Kraft Outlet!!
I decided to use red, black and white with the kraft and I just love the colors together.


I used a double sided designer paper and border punched one side. To give the patterned paper contrast, I folded it allowing both sides of the paper to show. I used Blind and Pearls to accent the seam between the patterned paper and the stamped image.



I heat embossed the stamped images with Black embossing powder and added some black striped grosgrain ribbon tied with the string from the coffee stained tags by Kraft Outlet to accent the tag.

I inked the edges of the kraft card stock with Tea Dye distress ink and the patterned paper with Basic Black.
They are simple but so pretty! I hope you will give it a try!
I look forward to seeing what you create!!

Regan, that is such a great Santa stamp. He is so adorable. My favorite part of your tags are the plump ribbon and the small strand of bling. I like how you used black to work so good with the holiday color of red - it's a great color combo!
