Hi readers! Happy Christmas week! Are your halls decked? Are your treats made? Are your gifts bought and wrapped? If your answer is no to the last one, never fear! We’re so excited to welcome back the fabulous Elena Roussakis as a guest designer once again, who has made these super adorable tags featuring Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn goodies!

Read on, and enjoy!

I used a mix of Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant products to make a set of gift tags.  I first cut the circle tags, and used an ink blender to blend some soft blue ink. The blue ink is so soft you may not see it in all the pictures! But in real life, it’s a pretty hint of a white/blue sky. Perfect.  I then die-cut a second set of the circle tags, and ran those through the die-cutter with the forest border dies, so that each tag could have a row of snowy white trees behind the foxy focal image.

I used the hat from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Arctic and put it onto the fox from Mama Elephant’s Three Amigos. I love mixing and matching images from different sets!  I then used the partial die-cut technique to cut the entire thing out as one unit. A few sentiments from Mama Elephant’s Mini Messages set are Christmas-themed and work perfectly inside the fox’s message board. I love the one that reads “? Santa” – it’s the cutest!

Whenever I mass produce, I never do the whole project in one sitting. That would be crazy-town. But if you do all of the die-cutting in one shot, and then all of the stamping/coloring, the whole thing comes together very painlessly. I hope you like what I’ve created for you!
