Quirky christmas tags

The Crafty Individuals October challenge Halloween madness or Christmas frenzy had me thinking about the quirky birds. They of course have their own quirky attitude towards everything that goes on, also Christmas!

In Finland everyone owns a bright red "elf-hat" with a jingle bell at the end. They are worn during the Christmas season at school parties and other Christmas events. And of course at home on Christmas eve while waiting to get to the gifts.

I did the stamping with Versafine Onyx Black (and some red Distress Ink). Everything was heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The tags were finished with Pumice Stone -Distress ink blotched with water, red hats drawn with Inktense pencils and some red ribbon. I could imagine these as fun Christmas cards too, perhaps changing the sentiment to Merry Christmas and adding a bauble to hang from the birds' beak. These I plan to give to some colleagues before Christmas together with a little gift.
