Christmas Tags with Character Construction

Hi Dreamers!
Here I am back today, with the tags that you saw on my desk earlier.  I have them all finished and photographed.  I made this group of small tags ( 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches)  with Character Construction stamp sets-Vintage Christmas.  I stamped them all with Black Soot Distress Ink.  Have you tried stamping with Black Soot?  I love how it looks so really black and glossy.  Here are tags.

The small tags are great for small packages or bags.  On the box below, I tied the tag right on to the gift box.  Great for jewelry gift boxes.   This lovely lady is from Set # 1.

Here are some close ups of the other tags.  The Angel ( Set # 4) was stamped on a yellow/green and gold background.  I added a sheer wide ribbon tied into a bow.

I used the tree from Set #4 (it is on top of the car).  I just turned it so that it is right side up.  Added the bird from Set # 2.  The Postage Stamp tree is from Set # 3.

 The Santa is from Set # 2.

The Sledders are from Set # 3.

The tags were really fun to make!   I made the backgrounds and when they were dry; stamped away.  I will use the tags on my gift packaging.
