Jolly Santa Tag

Hi there! It's Rachel here from a cold and rainy Australia... perfect weather for crafting! I know Christmas is a few months away but it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas cards! Especially if you have lots to make!

Today I'm sharing a project created by Marjie Kemper who is on the Darkroom Door Creative Team. Marjie has used the Sizzix Tags & Bookplate die as the main element to work on for her tag:


Marjie used the Darkroom Door Jolly Santa Collage stamp and the Sizzix Snow Flurries texture fade to create this wintery tag. The tag was cut from white cardstock using the Sizzix Tag & Bookplates die. Next she added texture with the Snow Flurries texture fade, running it through the machine twice to cover the entire tag.


She stamped the Jolly Santa and added some of the Snow Flurries around the edges by carefully positioning the stamped image in the Texture Fade, one snowflake at a time.


Here the reverse side ~ she ended up with Snow Flurries just around the Santa image, and not on top of him.


Layers of Distress Inks build up the background.


Marjie used Distress Markers to color Santa and his bag. Some twine and plastic snowflake bits finish it off.  

Darkroom Door Products used:

Sizzix Products used:

The Snow Flurries Texture Fade is no longer sold in the UK, so if you don't already have this in your stash, you could try using either of these as an alternative:

I hope this has inspired you to get started on your Christmas projects soon :) 

Happy stamping!
