Hello! Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I have a fun Christmas tag to share with you! This tag also holds a gift card.
I first cut out the tag from the Silhouette Cameo. I cut the tag at 7 1/2 x 3 3/4, to give me a jumbo sized tag. I cut four tags, and adhered them together, making it very sturdy! I used Heidi Swapp’s Vintage Chic paper collection for the background. I then added some dimension with a stencil and Modeling paste. I used some silver glitter tape from American Crafts down the front of the tag, along with flat-back pearls for more dimension. I did add a small piece of lace doily to the tag as well.
I used Tim Holtz Layered Angel Wings die…this was so much fun to play with! I distressed the wings, along with the edge of the tag in Distress Ink, Vintage Photo. I also added stickles to the wings. I then used the beautiful Kaisecraft Mannequin die. This is probably one of my favorite dies I own.
Using a few pieces of light-weight chipboard, I added Pink Paislee’s Snow Village paper to the top of that, making it very sturdy, then added a rhinestone buckle & pearl.
I wanted to add a Poinsetta flower, and I had the perfect one in my stash. It has gold stamens in the center of it, which gives it that perfect pop of gold to my project. I added a few leaves under the flower.
To the bottom of the tag, I wanted it to be a little frilly, therefore I added some beautiful trim, and wrapped it around the entire tag. I used a 1/2″ circle punch to give my tag a hole reinforcer (just for looks), and added cream satin ribbon, tied off with cream colored baker’s twine.
To the back of the tag, I wanted this to also serve as a gift card holder, therefore I added a small brown paper bag, along with silver glitter tape, seam binding, and some berry spray.
Die-Namites Floral Deer die is such a fun die to work with. To me, it looks amazing when you add gold enamel powder to it. To give this tag a perfect finish, I just had to use one of Tim Holtz’s Holiday Words Script dies, using “Wonderland”. I’m in love with this font, and it finished off my tag perfectly!!
The gift box I made previously is a great match to this gift card holder.
I’m really excited to give this tag to someone special this Christmas. I think it’s a beautiful way to present a gift card.
