I decided to make some cute reindeer Christmas tags for the gifts we are giving to our nieces and nephews. I think I was inspired by the deer tag that I made for my daughter the other day. If you did not see that post, you can click HERE to check it out. Also, I am trying to challenge myself to use my stamps more, and these little tags seemed like the perfect way to do that.
I also wanted to challenge myself to use papers I already had in my craft room. Who says you have to run out and buy new Christmas themed paper for a holiday craft! Why not use what you have!
I cut the white tag from the Plantin’ Schoolbook Cricut cartridge at 4 1/2″.
Next I stamped the reindeer from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow stamp set on to the tag.
I colored in the reindeer with markers, and did some shading around them with blue pencils that I then blended together with a blender pen.
I added some Dimensional Magic to the tip of the nose to give it dimension and shine.
I cut a blue tag from paper with a journal print on it from Bo Bunny. I used the same Plantin’ Schoolbook image on a shadow cut for this since I only wanted a hint of the blue showing behind the tag. The other great part about using this paper with the journal lines on it is that I can easily write the To and From information on the back of the tag.
