Christmas card with a giftie tag

I made this one from a kit from last week's class. You can check out the others here.
I laser printed the image of the three gifts (WPclipart) on white card stock and die cut them with a Sizzix tag die. I squared off the top and watercoloured the image in bright colours. I inserted the short length of red seam binding through the hole and secured it with double sided tape.  I trimmed the laser printed greeting with decorative scissors, colour washed one edge and adhered it to the left hand side of the tag.  I trimmed a strip of green cardstock along both long edges with decorative scissors and embellished it with paper piercing using a push pin and a pattern tracing wheel before adhering it to my decorative paper background.  I adhered this large element to a green card and finished off my card by adding the embellished tag with 3D foam tape.
I am behind on my goal of monthly Christmas cards for this year but this is one more to add to the stash.  NOTE:  Just checked and this one makes 32 cards!!         Therese
