TGIFC138 - Christmas Carol Theme

Hello there! It's time for another TGIF Challenge, this week with a timely theme of Christmas Carols! Stampin' Up! has terrific paper this year with this theme, and in trendy black and white.

I started with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, which is lightweight and comes 24 sheets to a package. It's great for layering and all kinds of other fun things.

The tag bases are made of Crumb Cake Cardstock, cut to 2" wide and punched with the Banner Triple Punch. The musical paper is 1 1/2" wide and also punched with the Banner Triple Punch. For this set, I stamped the greeting from the Oh, What Fun Stamp Set in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it in white on Basic Black Cardstock. The holly from the Stitched Felt Embellishments and some Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon complete the tags.

This set features a greeting from the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock. All the greeting circles are die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. I used the tree from the Stitched Felt Embellishments and the tree base cut from Real Red Cardstock using the die from the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies. This set is completed with Jute Twine.

The last set also has a greeting from the Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, and the Stitched Felt star. I also love the variety of the musical papers in that Merry Music Specialty DSP. Some red Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack completes these two tags.
