Well today I am back with my 3rd Tag to join in Loll's Twelve Tags for Christmas.

I started by cutting out some green snippets of card to make my tag, and then used more snippets glued to the back of the tag to make it sturdy.
I painted round the edges with Starlight Topaz Paint.
I also used the same paint on my small tag, and edge of my Christmas paper, and the ribbed cardboard.
The baubles are from another lovely serviette that I had from Mary H.
I backed them onto card, and then heat embossed with Holographic embossing powder.
I added some beads for the hangings.
I stamped a Christmas Greeting and attached it to the small tag.
Finally I added a sleigh and a reindeer.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, this is such a lovely tag and it has a wonderful traditional feel to it. Lots of lovely layering and I love the tag and embellishments. It reminds me of being young one looking in my sack on Christmas morning to find lots of fabulous things inside. I'm feeling a bit festive today as I've just made a batch of Christmas cards, better late than never! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Love how you've added gold paint to many of the background elements that tie everything together. Who knew the corrugated cardboard painted gold would be so elegant??!! Very creative Jenny. And those lovely ornaments are serviettes?? ... wow, another creative and clever design element. Thanks again for sharing at my tag event.

You are blazing a trail with these gorgeously layered tags you've been making. I like the combination of all the items you've layered upon this colorful tag (the gold corrugated paper is a lovely place for the little cardinal to rest!). I'm so thrilled to see what you're doing with the paper napkins and you have outshone yourself once again, with this beauty. TS & Hugs

This is a great tag! I love the texture from the corrugate panel, and all the gold elements really speak of the holidays. The two circle elements add such a nice touch. And that little wooden sled is darling! Crafty hugs!
