ATC Gift Tags-ho ho ho, twinkle & sparkle, joy, merry christmas,peace on earth, merry & bright

Hi Y'all Robyn here showcasing the versatility of Suzanne's digital files.
Finished ATC gift tags.
Have you spoken to Santa about a digital cutter under the tree?

These designed are sketched with pens, rather than cut.
 Raw materials!
On the mat the files are various sizes
To create ATCs, choose the rectangle function and draw a box 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" and  resize the file to fit.
Note the size change in merry and bright.
To sketch, go to the cut window and select just the word to cut, no cut on the outline of the card.

Scribble a bit with the pen, these are Sakura Stardust, and insert the pen into your pen holder. 
Place a popsicle stick under the pen to get the correct placement of the tip.
Be sure to do a test "cut" to make sure the pen is sketching correctly.
Using 80lb Neenah Classic Crest use Speed 5, Pressure 33.

DO NOT move the mat when it finishes sketching.

Replace the pen holder with your blade.
I use the CB 09 holders and blades, 65 for these fine cuts.
Go back to the cut window- select no cut for the words, and cut for the outline.

Some cards are  thermal embossed with clear embossing powder. 
You have time!

If you want to do less coloring, fill the letters with internal offsets.

Now embellish to your hearts content!

Stamp is from the vast selection of QF snowflakes!
Embossing powder is Ranger Christmas tree!
 Joy works both ways!

 The plan was to add , To: From: to the top of this card and I can't find the stamp!
plain and simple
My christmas wish ( hold the flakes!)

These are quick and easy. Please give them a try!
