Welcome to Day 12 of Tracey McNeely‘s 25 Days of Christmas Tags! I’m here representing Serendipity Stamps w/  an all die cut tag using their beautiful Ornament die along w/ some gorgeous snowflakes from their Snowflake Reverse die. This is also for Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge (FS510). A big congrats to Jen! I chose THIS to case. I kept the gold & white w/ the gold glitter, but I made a Christmas tag instead of an Anniversary card & I used different papers & different dies.

For my shiny tag, I die cut a white stitched rectangle then die cut the ornament in the center. Another ornament was die cut out of the gold mirror board & I fit into the opening and carefully attached it from the back side. Using the fuse tool, I made a little shaker pouch out of a cellophane bag & filled it w/ sequins & gold micro beads. A foam sheet was attached behind the ornament panel before the shaker pouch was added & the whole thing was attached to first a piece of gold glitter card stock, then to a larger piece of die cut patterned paper. The tag topper was made w/ a tag topper die but it was about half this size so I used my resizing technique to make it twice as big & added a strip of gold glitter c/s. All the little gold snowflakes were added along w/ the die cut Merry.

On my Santa Star card, I decided to make it into a shaker card. I really love shakers & I think they add a little something extra & kids love them. The shaker on this was made using a cellophane pouch I made out of a little envelope that embellishments come in. There’s not a lot of depth or bulk to it so it’s definitely mailable.

After die cutting the white top panel w/ the Double Stitched Rectangles, I positioned the largest Double Stitched Star die at an angle toward the top. The largest Sparkling Star die was used to cut the red frame behind it & I used the smallest star dies to die cut all the sparkly stars I put inside the shaker. After sealing it, I attached it behind the star opening & added a thin foam sheet under it give it a bit of room. I added a green paper star behind it before I attached it all to the striped paper. Santa was colored w/ Copics & fussy cut. The greeting was stamped on another star & the glittery presents added beside Santa.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For my Rudolph card, after stamping & coloring him, he was die cut w/ the matching die. I found some paper in my stash that had a row of little red nosed reindeer on it so I cut just that strip & found some other papers that coordinated w/ it. The greeting was stamped on a Stitched Oval & backed w/ a plain Oval & I thought it needed a little something extra so I die cut the stars using the Splendorous Stars & Shining Star dies.

A big congrats to Holly, the newest Featured Stamper (FS509) on Splitcoast! And a big Howdy to a fellow Texan..yeehaw! Holly has such a big, beautiful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout (but flipped it) & used similar colors, but I used different images w/ leaves instead of a wreath & some cord instead of ribbon.

The leaves were stamped on a leftover piece of Wrinkle Free Distress background done on water color paper, then fussy cut. The 2 rusty brown strips were stamped w/ a woodgrain bg & die cut. I wound the gold cord into a wreath like shape & attached the leaves on top. Pretty clean & simple!

Here’s a look at the inside.
