This week is all about Christmas tags, and these ones are super cute and easy to put together. I love the stitched shapes framelits dies and how gorgeous these square ones look layered up together.
Although I stayed with a merry merlot/tranquil tide and copper theme throughout, I absolutely love the design break with the buffalo check background stamp. So beautiful, why did I wait so long to use it?!
Having made 6 gorgeous tags, I just had to make a matching box to hold them all in!
Click play on the video below to see how to make the buffalo check tag & tag box.

I must admit that I almost overlooked this stamp set in the Autumn/Winter catalogue. It’s probably because I would choose contemporary Christmas design over traditional every time. However on closer inspection the Wise Men from Afar Stamp Set is both classic and elegant and is perfect for my favourite technique of all time – heat embossing.
I chose copper as my metallic and when I was trying to figure out how to style these cards, I realized that the beautiful rich tones in the Eastern Palace Speciality DSP would work perfectly.
The beautiful copper star in the first card was die cut using copper foil sheets and the Starlight Thinlits Dies.
In the second card, I used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies to create the stunning intricate copper embellishment behind the wise men. Just love the way the Eastern Palace Suite works so well with this timeless stamp set, hope you do too xx
