Polkadoodle Challenge 30 - Christmas In July

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme this week is:

Christmas In July

Nothing like making Christmas cards when its cracking the flags!  I've made some Christmas tags rather than a card and all the paper based elements are from Gingerbread Twist.  The backing card is a really lovely vintage but grungy pattern and I've added the fab gingerbread people as toppers.

I printed them out and then cut round, adding with foam pads for a bit of lift.  I cut the tags with my Sizzix Scallop Tag die and added a faux stitched line around the edge and then an organza ribbon bow to the top.

I've not decided if these will stay as tags or if I will turn them into toppers for a card....

Good luck with the challenge - for more details pop over to Polkadoodles!
