Fast Santa Tags

Hello.  Welcome.  Power Poppy is doing a 12 Days Of Christmas challenge, with lots of fun inspiration, so I thought I'd join the fun by making some chalkboard style tags inspired by Katie's day 1 tags.

I cut Bazzill Blackberry card using Sizzix Scalloped Pennant die, cos I thought it looked sorta christmas tree-y shaped.   Then I used Power Poppy's stamps from the Action Santa set.  I stamped them with white pigment ink and embossed with white powder.  Then I smeared the white ink around to give the chalkboard look.   Gotta love quick and easy in December LOL.

I decided to also stamp one of the small snowflakes with the white ink around the tag to fill some of the gaps.  I think because of the colour scheme, as well as the subject matter, these will be great for the men's gifts. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
