QKR Design team blog hop. A simple tag.

Hello all you craft loving friends!

I know, I just went back to summer from my Christmas posts and here I am again with another Christmas post! 
Today is the QKR Stampede Design Team Blog Hop and our theme is
"Christmas in July"
and you know it's a great time to be thinking about those
Christmas projects you want to get done.
Don't wait until the last minute and end up not getting them done. 
Start them now. 

Today the design team has some wonderful ideas to show you, so if you just happened onto the hop here on my blog, pop over to the QKR Blog and start at the beginning, you will want to see all the projects and get some great inspiration.
If you have come from Jessica's blog, you are on the right track!

Now for my project, as simple tag.
I love hand made tags. For this one, I used red distress ink and used the direct to paper technique to put the color down onto the tag.
I then used "Trees" (#14501) from QKR Stampede and stamped it onto green card stock.  Once I had cut it out, I applied some liquid pearls on the edges of the branches and a bit for snow here and there on the tree.
I used foam tape to adhere the tree to the tag.
The "Merry Christmas" is a sticker that I had in my stash.
There is plenty of room on the back of the tag to simply write 'to' and 'from' or include a little wish or message to the recipient.
This tag was simple to create and would be very easy to mass produce.
Hop on over to the QKR Stampede store and see what other Christmas images they have that would be great for your Christmas tags.  There are a lot of wonderful images at QKR.
Now, I'm sending you off to Kristine's  blog to see what wonders she has to show you.
Thanks for stopping by today.   Remember to leave a comment as there is a prize to be won.  See the QKR Blog for details.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
