Twelve Tags of Christmas - Day 5

Welcome back to the Twelve Tags of Christmas. We are on Day Five, and using Frosty tones today, just a little bit of stamping, that allows for any slight errors to be out of the main sight. So far this is my favourite, I think. I just love icy tones, and often decorate our Christmas Tree in white and glass, with a bit of silver.

Today is also making the most of Stampin' Up! Bundle pricing, by using the Merriest Wishes Stamp Set and Merry Tags Framelits – you see, I am saving you money again, am I kind to you, or am I kind to you?

This tag uses very small pieces of card again, but does use a piece of Window Sheet to give the Glimmer Card a bit of support.

Couple of tips for the Big Shot – the Precision Base Plate is great for the Intricate Dies, but you should NOT use it for standard Framelits as it can dull their cutting edge, so try to remember to use the standard plates for those. I find Glimmer Card is best cut from the back, again to try to preserve the cutting edge of the dies. When you are using the Precision Base plate in particular, you may find that the top cutting plate begins to bend. This is normal, but not ideal, so to avoid that, remember to use different areas of the plates, so not always bang slap in the middle, and turn the top plate over and around as much as you can so the pressure is distributed on different areas. Don't worry too much if you forget any of this, it is not the end of the world, but I do like to share any tips I come across with you.

BIG REMINDERS AGAIN – Tomorrow, 13th December is the last recommended date for placing orders that are needed for Christmas. If you are in the UK, I would love you to order from me, I try to give my customers a very special experience, including exclusive projects, early updates on important Stampin' Up! Information and ALL customers who place on-line orders will get a personal 'Thank You' from me. If you use the Hostess Code, you will also be able to share in some additional Stampin' Up! Goodies, chosen by me for you.(Qualifying orders between £20 and £150, excluding P&P).

All my existing Customers, and all those who order between now and next Friday, 16th December, will receive a free copy of both the Spring-Summer 2017 AND Sale-a-Bration Catalogue (fingers crossed) between Christmas and New Year, ready to place your first order in the new year.

I hope you enjoy this project and look forward to seeing you for the remainder of the Twelve Tags of Christmas. You will find the measurements and list of products used below.

Remember to use the Hostess Code if your order is over £20 and under £150 (both excluding P&P), so you can get some extra crafting goodies free from me.

So pop on over to my shop now and fill that bag with Lots of Pretty Things!

The three pieces of 'card' are all the same size for this project:
