Hello! How is your weekend so far? Mine has been quite nice. I got some quality craft time in yesterday and that always makes me happy! I have to start getting a move on making my Holiday cards to send out. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone! Christmas will be here before you know it. Have you started on your Holiday cards yet?
For today’s post I made some 3 x 3 cards that would make nice gift tags. The first one uses a base of Island Indigo Card Stock. I used the Simply Scored Tool with the Diagonal Plate to emboss piece of Crumb Cake for the background and adhered it to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso. I used the Bitty Banners Framelits to cut it out. The ornaments, stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo, are from the Merry Minis Stamp Set and are punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. All of the elements are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The second tag starts off with a base of Pool Party Card Stock. I used the retired Spiral Edge Punch along the top and took a piece of Island Indigo and punched it with the Scallop Border Punch and adhered it to the back along the bottom. It’s mounted to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso. The trees are stamped in Pool Party and Island Indigo from the Merry Minis Stamp Set and punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. They too are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Pool Party and Island Indigo are great colors, especially when paired with Crumb Cake. These tags would go great on a package wrapped with craft paper. I hope that you are inspired by these tags to make some of your own. Thank you very much for dropping in today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 🙂
