Today I'm sharing with you my Christmas tags made with Photo Play paper, which is available in the shop!  Also, a Christmas card.

First up is my shaker tag...

The sweet happy deer is from the set Jingle all the Way.  I colored him with copics.  I just love this happy little deer!  The tree is from the set Meet me under the Mistletoe.  I stamped it in green and went over the sentiment with a yellow copic marker.  I colored the rest of the tree green.  The sequin mix is (Winter Mix).  And, the frame was made using Sweet Cuts-Oval Scallop Frames.  Button, twine, and (Green Apple) ribbon to finish the tag.

Next up, is my CAS tag made using Sweet Cuts-For You for the tag.  The joy sentiment die cut is from Sweet Cuts-Joy.  It was die cut once with photo play paper and cut once with foam paper for dimension.  And, the joy sentiment is from the set Meet me under the Mistletoe.  Such a lovely elegant sentiment, don't you think?  Sticker gem, twine and (Green Apple) ribbon to finish the tag.  Here is my tag...

And, my final tag was made using Sweet Cuts-Rectangle Scallop Frames.  The same joy die cut as seen on the second tag.  The same tree as seen on the first tag.  The gift is from the set Merry Little Christmas.  Gold Nuvo drops were added for interest.  Gold twine, button, and Licorice ribbon to finish the tag.  Here is my tag...

Ok, now onto my card with sweet Jesus in the manger...

I colored the image from the stamp set Stand Add-on: Manger with copics and used gold Nuvo drops for the halo.  The paper is from Kaiser Craft.  The ribbon(Tea) and (Robin Egg) is from Paper Sweeties.  And, (Gold) sequins to finish the card.

Here is a view of the inside of the card...

The sentiment is from the same set Stand Add-on: Manger.
