CAS Christmas Card Challenge January 2020: Tag Card

I finally got a chance to play in the CAS Christmas Card Challenge: Tag Card
hosted by the very talented, Christine.

You have until the 24th to play along.

I have been purging my craft room,  which means I am going thru all my stashes.  
I found this beautiful Alcohol Ink on Yupo paper red background and 
die cut with my CUTplorations Luggage Tags Nesting Die.  
Also found a larger white Luggage Tag.

Next I die cut several Merry sentiments using CUTplorations Christmas Sentiments Dies.
There are 7 Christmas Sentiments in the set.  You will be seeing more in the future:-)

I stacked 3 Merry's using Connect Glue and attached to tag.
Next placed tag in MISTI and stamped Christmas with Archival Jet Black ink.
Added STAMPlorations Shaker Blends Sequins using Connect Glue.
Then added SU twine.

Popped up red tag onto white tag with White Craft Foam.
Dry embossed SU Whisper White 100# CS with SU Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
Then attached tags and Done!

So happy to add a card to my Christmas Stash.
Thank you Christine for a fun Challenge.  Hugs...

  1. Beautiful rich red on the top tag! Love it bordered with the white and with the scattering of sequins. Thanks so much for making a card for CAS Christmas.

  2. So bright and bold, with exactly the right depth from layering the sentiment.

  3. This tag screams Christmas and I love the shape of it.

  4. And a very pretty card it is, Nancy! Love that red background and the lovely font of the die cut merry! I look forward to seeing more of those die cuts! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!

  5. Nancy, this is so pretty with your beautiful red AI tag. Thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas.

  6. I love the alcohol ink on the yupo paper and fabulous to find it in your stash. The layering of the tags look wonderful and the vibrant red against the crisp white looks amazing x.

  7. Nancy, you CAS girls play so nicely together!! I ADORE this tag, and that gorgeous yupo AI creation! And it's always a treat to see that SU embossing again! xx

  8. Love the texture of your card base. Your bright red tag really pops off all the white --- so pretty! Great mix of die-cut and stamping for your sentiment!! xx

  9. Beautiful and eye-caching CAS card, Nancy. The luggage tag is my favourite tag die. The red just pops against all that wonderful subtle textured white. That EF is on my wish list. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas.

    1. You will love the embossing folder. Thank you for your sweet comment, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

  10. Beautiful Nancy, I love that wonderful red AI background it really pops against the white wood grain. thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas :)

  11. The vibrant red of your tag against that textured white background is amazing, Nancy! Love the curvy border of that tag die and all the bling-a-dings! I'll bet you're having fun finding things you'd forgotten you had!! Hugs, Darnell

  12. Oooh, red and white! I always love this combo. It's so crisp and your photo shows every detail beautifully. Lots of texture with the die cuts and embossed card base. One of these days I'm going to get that folder. Love all the little trinkets you added to the tag. Cute and merry, Nancy! I'm purging again, too. Some things have to go!

  13. This is a very happy tag card, Nancy! Your bright red tag pops beautifully against the white, and the textured card base adds definition to the white large luggage tag. Using only the "Merry" die-cut and stamping the rest of the sentiment is clever. The STAMPlorations Shaker Blends Sequins are a wonderful finishing touch! TFS, my friend!
    Hugs.. Hideko
