Gingerbread Tag and little gift

Good morning everyone,
Today I'm posting a tag made from the Stretch Your Imagination Cartridge. It's the cute little gingerbread man. I saw this  cut over at Cardz TV on a tag Mary made and I just had to try it.
I cut it out in the blackout feature so I could use a Peachy Keen face, (Everyday Character Faces Set), I also cut the silhouette in white to look like  icing. I decided I wanted to play along with Peachy Keen Challenge for Kathy's Happy Birthday Celebration, so that is where the background design came from. For the tag I used the Christmas Cheer Cartridge, and cut it at 5" and then used the square feature to cut the scallop outline, the little squares were cut using the same cartridge and cut at 2".  A Cuttlebug folder to emboss the tag, a couple of red buttons and a little doodle with a white gel pen for some details. The green gems, ribbon and jingle bell finished it off.
I made several of these to attach to some little gifts I put together. I found some darling mugs at Michaels and filled them with hot cocoa or coffee and chocolates.
