Nativity Tags

A friend of mine was wanting some gift tags for her Christmas packages. She asked me if I could make some that are biblically based. I was so excited she asked as I thought immediately of the nativity scene files that My Scrap Chick has. I've had them for awhile; and now that I have made them, I wonder what took me so long. These files are super cute!!! I apologize for the slightly blurry photos. I promised her I would mail them today, so that left me taking pictures at the wrong time of the day. You can find the cut files here - My Scrap Chick Christmas Files.

I used several brands of cardstock from my stash for the paper piecings and the tag base back. The tag base front DP is from one cool company - Carta Bella. Love their paper!!! It is a release from last year called Merry & Bright. The colors are so bright and fun, and the paper is a thick cardstock that is so nice to craft with. If you haven't tried a Carta Bella paper before, I recommend you look them up. Great stuff. I distressed using Memento and Color Box inks. The back of the tags have To: and From: stamped on them. I used my Sizzix Eclips to cut the svg files. Six of the tags stand 5" tall and the other two are 4.4" tall. Now that I have made them I have decided that the next ones that I make with have some embossing on them. With that said though, I did make two extra sets like these ones and they will be for sale on my FB page. Please stop by and have a look. They will be posted shortly.

These tags are awesome. Love your patience in putting those images together. Sure came out wonderful. Thanks for blessing us with your artwork this week at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with God's Word in Proverbs 18:10 which says, "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." God bless, always!
