So i have been thinking about Christmas a lot recently - and i have also been playing around with the new Stampin' Up! goodies and came up with this idea for gift tags - i can't wait to make a batch of them!
I ran some 'Soft Suede' card through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Pennants Die' to create the 'body', then on a piece of 'Crumb Cake' card, stanped the 'a gift for you' stamp (from the 'Beautiful Season' stampset' using 'Soft Suede' ink and then punched it out using the '1-3/8" Punch' His head was created using the 'Petite Pennants Builder' punch, i punched the scalloped triangle out of 'Soft Suede' I stamped the inner triangle using 'Pennant Parade' Stampset and then punched it out. His ears have been created from the wing of the 'Two Step Bird Punch' (from 'Crumb Cake' - i used a 'Soft Suede' 'Stampin Write Marker' to draw on the detail) and his antlers from 'Soft Suede' card (also using the 'Two Step Bird Punch' - they're the branches) His nose has been punched from 'Real Red' cardstock using the '1/2" Circle Punch' - i placed a teeny tiny 'Basic Pearl' on it to give a shine effect! Here's a close up of his head:
Finally i glued it all together - using a 'Dimensional' to raise his head and threaded through some 'Real Red' 'Satin Ribbon' ... honestly it sounds more complicated than it is!
