Sweet Gingers!

July is coming to an end, but all the Christmas crafting is just beginning. Today I have two more tags to share with you using files from
 
My Scrap Chick
 
How about some Ginger Cuties!
 
 
 I think Mr. Ginger is a bit smitten with Miss Ginger!

 
The file I used for the gingers is called Ginger Babies. I used Ginger 4, but I left off the bib. I also layered one of the gingers on my mat before cutting and flipped it horizontally to give it a different angle. Once the gingers were inked and assembled, I attached them to the tag from the Fall Tree Gift Tag file. I cut out the base of the tag at the imported size, but the top layer was resized to 2.582" wide x 4.750" high. I really like the shape of
this tag and I use it for lots of tag projects.

 
 
The gingers were finished off with this cute face from the Peachy Keen Stamps Fun Kiddie Face Assortment (PK-546). The eyes were filled in with my white gel pen, the cheeks were chalked and a few freckles added, and the nose was colored in with
EK Success and Martha Stewart colored pencils. 

 
I used some Valentine Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine and a button to attach my ribbon to the tag. I also gave Miss Ginger a Trendy Twine bow in the same color.

Supplies Used:
 
My Scrap Chick -
 
Trendy Twine -
 
Carta Bella -
Merry and Bright Paper Collection
 
Papertrey Ink -
Vintage Cream Cardstock
 
Ribbon and Button from My Stash
