A set of Christmas tags

I've never done a set of cards and that's the challenge this week for JUGS. So I started small and made a set of 4 3x3 cards to use as gift tags. My mother-in-law (who died a year ago this summer at the age of 95) always used this type of tag on her Christmas packages because she liked to write on the inside and I think she would have liked these. Three of the sentiments come in the Seasons Greeting Sentiment set from Paper Makeup Stamps. The other (Embrace the magic...) is a single stamp also from PMS.
My dd who is the owner of PMS has made the difficult decision to discontinue the rubber stamps at PMS although she will continue to have everything still available as a digi. For those who want some GREAT deals on red rubber stamps. Check it out here. All stamps and card making products are currently 45% off!!

All the papers on my tags are from the same Christmas Combo matstack. I used a variety of nestie shapes, ink colors, and a little bling. Packaging is NOT my strength so I made a very simple little envelope out of one of the dp used on my tags and decorated it with a little poinsettia and slid the tags down inside. Happy December everyone!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
