Three Christmas Tags

You are probably aware by now that I am a huge Christmas fan and that I treated myself to the new ElenaZinski stamps as a very early Christmas present! I am really glad I did as these stamps are incredibly versatile!
I started by using some previously made backgrounds  on card that were left over from a previous project (I tend to save everything as you never know when it'll come in handy!) I made the backgrounds by layering paint with a brayer - this was it in pink:
And this one in blue:
I then stamped a tag shape on the card and cut them out:
For the figures, I stamped them on to card, coloured them in and adhered them to the tags. 
For the girl holding the candy cane I scored each side of her arms with a craft knife so I could feed the cane between them so it looked like she was carrying it. All that was left was to add a sentiment! It was such an easy make that could easily be turned into a card or invitation but mine are, unsurprisingly, gift tags - just 20+ more to make!😉
