Vintage Christmas Tags for Sugar Creek Hollow

We have arrived at another Saturday and that means a wonderful new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow. Since we are fast approaching Christmas we decided to challenge you to make VINTAGE CHRISTMAS TAGS. Your vintage tag can be part of a card or a stand-alone beauty.

We want to remind you that we are a vintage, shabby chic or primitive challenge blog and when you enter one of our challenges, your creation must fit one of those styles as well as following the weekly theme.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don’t forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.

Our designers have created some gorgeous tags for your inspiration. If you would like the details just click on their name to be taken directly to their blog.

I decided to add my tag to a card and use some really non-traditional colours - rust, brown and lime green. I also dug deep into my unused stash and found some page pebbles. They were perfectly clear and colourless when I bought them 4 years ago but have changed colour, which turned out to be just fine for this card.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sassy Studio Designs - Non-Traditional Christmas Colors
ABC Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes (must be Christmas)
Creative Belli - Winter & Christmas
I Brake for Challenges - Vintage
Little Red Wagon - Vintage Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Photo Inspiration
Creative Card Crew - 'Tis the Season
Crafty Sentiments - Snowflakes
My Time to Craft - Vintage Christmas
