Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl here, and today I’ve made a Christmas Tag Card.
It began as a tag, and I could have totally left it like that, but I decided I wanted to make it into a card instead.
Below you can see what it looked like as a tag.
I began by cutting out a piece of cardstock from the largest size of the Distressed Tags from the Steampunk Dreams collection.
I also cut another piece using The Gift of Giving Collection. That was the base of my tag.
I glued the two together, to give it some strength. (Remember, this was originally going to be a tag.)
Next I added a large image from the Gift of Giving Diecut Ephemera Set. The one I used has the candles on it.
I then took the individual candles from the same emphemera pack, and using foam tape, added them on top
to give texture and height.
I cut out a doily from the My Sweet Love collection using the same green cardstock I used for the base.
I also used that same cardstock for one set of the leaves. The other leaves were made using scrap from double-sided paper I used for the base of the tag.
The doily was tucked between the base layer and the ephemera.
I cut out two of the “Peace on Earth” mini die, using two contrasting colours, and layered them slightly off so you could see what looked like a shadow. I used Couture Creations Diecut’N Bond Double Sided Adhesive roll to make it easier to secure them.
Last of all I added a matching bow with ribbon from my stash, and added some glitter glue to the flames.
Once that was all done, I was really happy. Then I thought it would look even better on a card.
So I went through the Gift of Giving Collection, and found a sheet that contrasted well and didn’t overwhelm the tag.
You can see the result below.
