Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas Day 12 - Santa Claus is Coming to Town

This is it! The big finale! It's Day 12 of the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas event - this year we are using our favourite Christmas songs as inspiration. Be sure to go to the Ellen Hutson blog for all the details and daily inspiration from the Design Ambassadors!

Today's Christmas song inspiration is Santa Claus is Coming to Town. I used the Speech Bubbles dies to create Santa's beard for this fun tag. 

I used a black strip with the sentiment embossed in gold to look like his belt, and I added a snowball from the Snow Buds dies as a button. Simple, but so fun!

I hope you've enjoyed the event this year! Here's a video of all 12 Tags in about 12 minutes.

  17. This is by far my most favorite tag I have seen this year. One look and you know it's Santa. I don't think I would ever think to use a speech bubble die for Santa's beard. Thanks for inspiration.
