Oh goodness, I’ve been gone for a long time! So here you go – a post and an explanation! This cute card uses Karen Burniston’s new Tag Book die turned so that it’s a vertical tag. I used Stampin Up’s the beautiful Year of Cheer DSP adhered to the retired brushed gold card stock, along with a Gold foil snowflake and the Snowflake Sentiment stamp set to decorate the front. After covering the front of the Tag Book with the DSP, I added a foil snowflake, gold thread, then a white Glimmer paper snowflake, and a silver Faceted Gem. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder, then punched out with the Everyday Label punch. The top is tied off with the Gold Metallic Edge ribbon. Sparkle!
The Tag Book drops open (like a tag!) I’ve die cut the center of the two little squares and used the trim piece to sandwich the snowflake from the KB Charm set on a piece of clear fishing string and finished the inside off with a snowman from her Snowman Twist Circle die. To make his little scarf, I die cut the hat band 4 times and pieced it together. The die cut words are from the Winter Words die. The tag is finished off with a loop of gold floss that is long enough to go through both top circles on the closed tag so you can hang it on your package.
Here’s a close up of the details and also a better idea of the actual color! All the sparkle was really keeping it from photographing correctly 🙂
If you’re still reading, my mother has been sick and I am taking this time to spend it with her. I will continue to post here but it will be sporadic. Thanks for understanding and I hope you’ll continue to check back. Hugs always, Fran
