25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello!  I am beyond thrilled to be joining my friend Tracey in her fabulous 25 Days of Christmas Tags event.  She puts so much work and love into this, and it really is all for our benefit with oodles of inspiration to be seen and oodles of prizes to be won.  You can find all the details on how to join in on the fun on Tracey's blog HERE.  Today I have the pleasure of featuring some of my favorite products by Concord and 9th, one of the generous sponsors (read: prize givers) for this event.  
Normally I like bold, bright and fun for the holidays, but this year I decided I wanted something a little softer, a little simpler, and a little more elegant.  Soft pink and muted gold glitter seemed to fit the bill perfectly.  My first tag uses perhaps my all time favorite Concord & 9th holiday product, Ornamental Dies.  Their large size and brilliant design options have me giddy and in awe every time I use them.  
I loved my first tag but knew my son would be less than thrilled to have a soft pink tag on his Christmas package, so I decided to make a second design for him.  I pulled out a new Concord & 9th favorite of mine, the Snow Flurry Dies.  I swapped blue for pink but kept the simplicity in design of the first tag.  I love that both the Ornamental Dies and the Snow Flurry Dies allow for the center portion of the shape to be cut in a different color, so I could maintain a cohesive design by inserting the gold into both tags.
Thanks so much for visiting me today.  I love, love, love the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, and I just know you will, too, so make sure you head to Tracey's blog next see even more inspiration and get in on those fabulous prizes!

  6. Both tags today are beautiful and elegant. I have a few family members that are not quite as "jolly" as most so these are perfect for them. I love the soft colors with the sparkle of gold, perfect. Thanks for sharing these and the awesome inspiration (my MIL will thank you also lol). (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

  18. Your Christmas tags are gorgeous! I love the intricate dies you used, and the pastel colors combined with the gold glitter is certainly elegant. They would look lovely hanging on a tree, as well!
