Rustic Christmas Tags for December Newsletter Tutorial

Well, I'm sure most of you have designed and created most of your Christmas cards already, and if you haven't there are samples galore on my blog, on Pinterest and all over the web for you to access. For my free photo tutorial for my December newsletter, I thought that you might enjoy some tag designs instead. These are a little out of the ordinary and would really work for masculine gifts, the ones we always struggle with.

I used several rustic and woodland stamp sets to make them and a palette of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Copper and Whisper White, with a little Black thrown in. Very neutral except for the copper. Here are some closer looks:

This design uses the Nature's Beauty stamp set as it's basis with the doe image, some bushes and lots of snowflakes and copper trims. There is a little lace and some Sparkle Glimmer Paper to soften the rustic look a little, but not so much that it takes away from the woodland look.

This set relies on the Rustic Retreat stamp set in the Annual Catalogue. The cabin is stamped separately on a 2" Circle Punch piece mounted on the rest of the tag using Dimensionals. The back of all the tags have another greeting and a place to write who the gift is to and from.

The final design uses both the Merry Moose and the Rustic Retreat stamp sets. Although I've used the Moose Punch to punch out the moose and it's no longer available, the moose is very easy to hand cut if you don't have the punch. For all the tags I also made good use of the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set for sentiments.

All the instructions for these tags will be set out in a step-by-step tutorial illustrated with photographs of each step in PDF format for you to download if you are a subscriber to my free monthly newsletter. To sign up for that, just enter your email address in the field below and hit go!
