Each tag was sized to fit the chosen stamp image used. All were cut from one piece of ivory card stock. The tag sizes are as follows:
Blue tag: 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"
Green tag: 2-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Red tag: 3-1/4" x 5-1/2"
Each tag was first stamped and embossed with black embossing powder and colored with Copic markers.
Color each tag with blue, green, or red distress inks, leaving the center uncolored and light.
Stamp tiny snowflakes around the image with white ink.
Add matching trim or ribbon to each, and on the green and blue tags, add holly leaves with a red dew drop from Robin's Nest. Instead of using a round hole punch on the red tag, I used a ribbon slot punch to thread the ribbon through. This made it really easy to tie a bow on the front of the red tag, as shown below.
Stamp "To:" and "From:" on the reverse if you are using them as gift tags.

Other: tan card stock, red, green, blue distress inks, black pigment ink, black embossing powder, white ink, crystal glitter glue, ribbon and trim, paper holly leaves, red dew drops (Robin's Nest)
Remember, if you don't want to use these as a simple gift tag, they make excellent focal images for a card front, too! So give them a try and make a bunch. Be sure to stop by the Sin City Stamps blog for inspiration, and the online store to check out the awesome stamp collections, stencils, and die cuts.
Have a wonderful weekend, and stay crafty, my friends!
