Gift Bag and Kitty Tag

Hi, everyone!  Happy Holidays to all!  I made a gift bag, along with a coordinating tag!  For the gift bag, I used a sheet of 12"x12" scrapbook paper from my old stash (K and Company) and followed the tutorial on Sasha Reade's YouTube Channel.  It was easy!   I tied the bag with ribbon (Crafty Ribbons) and attached the tag with twine (American Crafts).

For the tag, I used two stamp sets:  Uniko Rustic Christmas (tree, birds) and Hero Arts Meowy Christmas (cat, gift, star, sentiment).  I started with the background by ink blending Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio and then heat-embossed the tree (WOW iced silver).  I die-cut the heat-embossed background into a tag (STAMPlorations Tags 1 Nesting) and added a sparkly hole reinforcer (We R Memory Keepers punch).  I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the cat, gifts, and star images and adhered. I added Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the star and the gifts.  I finished the tag by stamping the sentiment in black and the birds in teal.

I would like to support the following challenges:
