Not-so-ugly Ugly Sweater Tags {Simon Says Stamp}

Hello there!  Recently, Simon Says Stamp released a collection called Cold Hands Warm Heart.  For the collection, Kristina Werner created an Ugly Sweater collection.  The collection consists of 2 stamp sets and coordinating dies.  As soon as I saw the peeks, I knew I had to have those sweaters!  They arrived yesterday, and I couldn't wait to ink them up.  Adding color just brings them to life!  This week, Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring a Flickr Challenge to create tags, or a card using a tag as the focal point.  I made a collection of gift tags trying to get a jump on my holiday crafting.  Now that I've had a chance to play with these sets, I can safely say that there will be lots of sweater stamping in my future!

I stamped, colored and diecut the sweaters assembly line style.  After I die cut the colored sweaters, I cut a second diecut from white card stock.  I scored the top of the white sweater diecuts and adhered them to the back of the colored diecuts to create a top folding tag.  The scoring allows for the tags to open easily.  Inside, I used the Mama Elephant No Peeking stamp set to stamp to and from on each.  Then I punch a hole and threaded some twine through to allow me to tie them on Christmas packages.

If you leave off the twine, these make super cute mini cards too!  I love how they can stand up on their own :)
