Christmas Word Art Tags

I love making hand made tags for gifts :)  these 3 are almost the same.
 

I used a tag from Cricut Very Merry Tags for my base that I stretched to the size I wanted to fit my stamp good.  I then ran it through my Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder and rubbed a light blue ink over it and also inked the edges with same ink.  I also made a topper for each tag cut from some beautiful Blue Iridescent paper (LOVE) I also inked the edges with a darker blue ink.  I used Craftin Desert Divas Simply Holidays Wordart stamp Set for the awesome sentiment.  I First used the free svg file Tara gives with lots of her stamp sets, then I stamped in Black Staz-on ink ...I planned to water color, but changed my mind.  I inked the edges with a darker blue ink.  I then popped it up on foam tap and attached to the tag.  On the tag topper I added some beautiful snowflake swirls cut from a Monster aluminum can using the beautiful snowflake border die from my craft spot.  I snipped of the sections I wanted simply with my scissors and used hot glue to attach.  I added a light blue grosgrain ribbon through the hole in each tag and used a regular stapler to attach it in place.  I then cut a snowflake from one on my www.creativekuts.com files and used some cute face stamps from Peachy Keen - Everyday Character assortment (PK-490)  I used 3 different adorable faces all 1/2" in size.  I used white gel pen for the eyes and some pink chalk for the cheeks.  I used hot glue again to attach these snowflakes to the ribbon hiding the staple.
