Only a few more days until Christmas and I've been busy wrapping up gifts. I love to make special tags and cards for my packages- it adds a special touch to each gift I give. Here are a few that I made this year:
The first one is a gift card holder tag. I cut an extra long piece of cardstock and folded one end up to create a pocket. It holds the cute Starbucks gift card perfectly! This one is embellished with the cute postal label stamp, some of the fun border strips, a chipboard button, and a few epoxy dots- all from the Santa's List collection.
My next tag was quick- I started with the doily journaling card and embellished the bottom with a glittery red border strip. Next, I stamped the calendar above the border strip with brown ink. I added a punch out banner flag next and then stamped and punched the sentiment onto the snowflake patterned paper. I added the decorative brad next and adhered it to my tag with a foam dot. Lastly, I added a few sequins for sparkle.
I have a couple cards to share, too! Here is my first one:
I started this one with a kraft card base. I started by stamping the snowflakes up one side of the card with red ink. Next, I added the journaling card with the snowflake punched out. I added some punch outs and banner flags to the left corner of the journaling card next and then added a few sequins as accent.
My last one is a fun one using more of those pretty sequins:
I loved this journaling card and knew it would be a fun sentiment on a card! I created a red card base for it and then added a strip of kraft cardstock to the center. I added my sentiment card next and wrapped it with a bit of silver cording, finishing it with a bow. I started adding the sequins next, starting close to the sentiment card. I added fewer and fewer as I went up. Lastly I went back and added the glitter bits- they are the centers from the silver sequins that I found in the baggy- don't they look pretty mixed in? :)
I add my cards to the front of my packages using a card hanger die by Soapbox Creations- who needs an envelope with this:
