Today’s post is a sweet Monday treat.  How do you like this little one’s bow tie?

When I first saw the Warm & Toasty stamp set, I thought the images were adorable and the sentiments fun.  Tag cards are always an easy way to create a quick project.  Start with a tag, stamp an image and go from there.  To make my tag a little more special, I stamped the reindeer image onto the dotted Designer Series Paper from the Classic Christmas collection.  Then, I fussy cut just the bow tie and glued it onto my stamped image on the tag.

Below is a simple “how to” for today’s card.

  • Cut a 2″ X4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  The 2″ width card stock will fit perfectly into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
  • Stamp your image onto the tag.  Color and embellish.
  • Cut an Early Espresso standard A-2 card base 4 1/4″ X 11″ and score on the 11″ side at 5 1/2″.
  • Add a Whisper White layer.  (I prefer a thinner border around my layers so my white layer measures 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″).
  • The Cherry Cobbler dotted layer is from the Classic Christmas 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper and measures 4″ X 5 1/4″.
  • I added a few flagged banners at the bottom of the tag to anchor the image to the card. The banners also give the design more color.
  • The Shaded Spruce striped bottom banner is 5/8″ X 3 1/2″, the Sahara Sand middle banner is 1/2″ X 3″ and the Shaded Spruce dotted banner is 1/2″ X 2 5/8″.
  • The Whisper White sentiment banner is 1/2″ X 1 5/8″.

Warm & Toasty has become one of my favorite stamp sets.  It’s whimsical and fun to stamp.

So, find a sweet reindeer, punch a tag, add a layer or two and create something sweet.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
