Paper Layering Santa Face

5 Comments

Hi, friends, Chark here today to show you some gift tags I made with the adorable Santa Face Paper Layering die. I love the size of this die cut for a tag, it’s just right. You could also use it to make cards, it would fit perfectly on a standard card as well.

For the first two tags, I used white cardstock and Tombow markers for the watercoloring I did. I also used nontraditional colors for his hat to make them a little more fun.

For my last tag, I die cut Santa from ivory cardstock, and primarily used Prismacolor pencils for a more realistic look. I applied him to a hand-drawn stocking gift card holder I made with vintage-looking paper. I traced around a gift card to get the size I need for the stocking and cut two pieces of red cardstock, then I debossed the stocking with an embossing folder and added the music paper and small fabric flowers and holly leaves. Make sure you leave the top open to slip in the gift card.

Making these was fun and I know I’ll need a lot of tags soon, so it’s a good thing I already started! You could put the names on the back of the tag if you like or use letter stickers instead of handwriting. Here’s the Hero Arts Santa die I used…you might notice I gave my Santa tags a little bit of an eyelid, which I thought made him look more realistic. He looks pretty cute either way…and yep, he’s on sale right now in the store—pick him up for just $12.90! And if you end up with $25+ in your cart, you can use the code CHARK15 to get 15% off your purchase.
