Traditional Christmas

Good morning and Happy Choosday again everyone. Well Winter is well and truly here now isn't it. We've had a few flurries of snow up here in Yorkshire, but nothing major as yet, (I'm writing this on Sunday) and hopefully it will stay that way. 
So of course because it's Tuesday that means it's
So get yourself over to the blog and grab your code before it expires!

So onto the challenge. This week we have the theme of Traditional Christmas. We are all now in full flow trying to get our Christmas makes done as the big day will be here in no time at all, after all it is the 1st December today, eeeek! I've decided to make some tags this week, and I've used the amazing Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist collection. Now anyone that has followed my crafting or blog for a while will know how much I love these Picknix collections and this is why I couldn't just stop at one tag, I made 6! And I have the bits to make a few more this afternoon! So here they are.
And here is a close up of them.

 These are so easy to make I just cut out the tag shape from Kraft card, cut strips of paper and distressed them all. Then when glued in place I added some faux stitching, some with a white pen and some with a black pen. Then I printed out a sheet of the embellishments onto some cream card. Now because all the embellies in this collection have a black outline, rather than fussy cut I scanned the sheet into my ScanNcut and had that cut them out for me. It didn't miss a single thing because of that black outline, so saved me the best part of any hour! More crafting time! Finally I finished them off with some string I got from the Christmas section of Ikea last year.
