White Christmas Tags

Today is Christmas here in Finland (we celebrate on the evening of the 24th). Today we will eat our traditional Christmas rice porridge for brunch. It's an age old tradition to put an almond in the porridge, and the one who gets the almond can make a wish for the year to come. Then it's time to relax in the Christmas sauna, and then relax your way to the Christmas eve dinner. We always focus more on the starters, salmon and herring with roe. By the time main course is served we usually only have a tiny little bit as we are stuffed from the starters. And we don't even bother with dessert, apart from munching on the chocolate Santa always brings every year. 

Should you still have access to your crafting room on Christmas unlike me this year, you could put together these quick last minute gift tags in mere minutes. These match the White Christmas cards I made earlier. I used the Stampin' Up Scalloped Tag Topper punch to create the tags out of beige cardstock and stamped and heat embossed the images in white. To finish, I added gold baker's twine. Super quick and simple for those last minute presents.

I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing time over the holidays and that you have loads of delicious food to enjoy with your loved ones.

I'm entering the tags in the following challenges:
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - Anything Goes 
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Pick any previous challenge (I picked two or four legs, although I'm not sure the snowman fits in either of them...)
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Lots of cuteness on anything but a card
Vintage Stamping Challenge - A Christmas Song (I'm dreaming of a white Christmas)
Cardstock: Coloured 240 gsm card beige

Ink: Tsukineko Versamark
Other: Stampin' Up Scalloped Tag Topper punch, Papermania Seafoam White embossing powder, gold baker's twine
