Letter to Santa

Time for another Christmas in July card!  

For this one I used  Rachelle Anne Miller's Letter to Santa image and colored it with Copic markers.  I had a package of Christmas tags by Pink Paislee handy and one had a 'Dear Santa' journaling box in the center.  My completed image fit perfectly after I added a red 1/4" liner mat.  I added the organza ribbon at the top and the little bird that I had fussy cut around to complete the tag! 

Love it just like that ~ but.... 
I really need cards, not tags with this much detailed coloring.

So I flipped through the Christmas papers and found this black background Christmas paper with the gold and white snowflakes.  It was perfect with the stripes on the Kraft colored tag.  I cut it to size and added it to an A2 card base.  Then I removed the ribbon from the tag and added the gold organza bow, securing it at the top.  Lastly I added the tag to the center of the card to complete another card for my 2022 Christmas Card stash!
