Mrs. Afro Claus with Christmas Folks Stamp Set 

by Hero Arts October 13, 2020 5 Comments

Hola everyone! Pocono Pam here sharing a gift tag I created with the newly released Christmas Folks stamp and coordinating Frame Cuts set. The set features Mr. & Mrs. Claus, angels, an elf and five holiday sentiments. When I saw Mrs. Claus in the set, I immediately knew I wanted to give her an afro! I love how she turned out and the tag is perfect to adorn any holiday gift! 

To create my gift tag, I stamped the image of Mrs. Claus with Intense Black Ink. I altered her hairstyle and colored in her garments with Copic markers.   

Using an acetate sheet and Paradise cardstock, I cut out the third nested Tag Infinity die. I stamped a portion of the Holiday Graphic Pattern Bold Prints on the the acetate tag with orange StazOn ink. This is a permanent ink and once dry (it only take a few minutes) will not smudge on the surface it is applied to. I adhered Mrs. Afro Claus onto the opposite side on the inked acetate tag with Precision Glue

Then, placing foam tape on the inked side under Mrs. Claus, I adhered the acetate tag to the blue tag. I added a bow. I stamped "to" and "from" on the back of the tag. Additional ribbon or string can be added once I am ready to tie the tag to a gift! 

Thanks for taking a peek at my Mrs. Afro Claus gift tag today! Have a great rest of your week!

Hi Pam, what a clever idea to create a Mrs. Afro Claus! Your tag is adorable and the colors are so pretty. The acetate gives nice dimension, too. Thanks for sharing your cute tag!

She is so cute! I ordered the set and am looking forward to trying it. I think the angel on the lower left could be colored to look African or Asian.
