Merry Christmas tags

Make It Monday #268:
Double-Layer Tags

On Monday Dawn McVey shared her tips for layering tags and
embellishments.  I love her set of PTI Cozy Christmas vintage
thermoses and dies that she used for decorating the tags.

Her exuberant use of pattern and color inspired me to
grab an old Christmas paper pad or two, several PTI
stamp & die sets and set up an assembly line as she did.

Lots of pictures to follow but only four tags!

I can't believe that I didn't procrastinate until the weekend to do these!!
BTW, these tags are a bit busy for me but they'll go on plainly wrapped
boxes or gift bags so I can live with them.

I've looked at Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags challenge for a
few years but until now never entered. I was inspired by Lisa Buckeye's tag
on Day 18 to use a bookmark tag as base for my layered tags.
