So this week I’ve started my Christmas gift wrapping and these glittery Christmas Tree Tags are adorning some of them. They’re quick to make and you can get eight from on sheet of A4 so cost effective too.
I’ve used Real Red and Shaded Spruce for that traditional Christmas feel. Firstly cut your cardstock in half on the short edge so you have two have eachmeasuring 105.cm in width. Now cut four tags from each half wth a width of 5cm each. At 5cm they will easily slide into the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, giving a decorative top for each tag. To finish off the base of your tags use the Detailed Trio Punch to round off the bottom two corners.
I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to add a greeting to the bottom of each tag. I did use the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink, which is sadly no longer available but I’m hoping most of you were able to get your hands on it. On the back of each tag I used the to/from stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so its easier to label.
For the Real Red Tag I used the Pine Tree Tag to punch trees from the Gold Glimmer paper and decorated them with Real Red Rhinestones and topped with a star from the Most Wonderful Time Medley which was coloured Real Red with a Stampin’ Blends Marker. I topped these tags with some Gold Metallc Edged Ribbon which is Very Vanilla in colour.
For the Shaded Spruce Tags I used Real Red Glimmer paper for the Christmas trees. I decorated these trees with the tinsel ribbon again from the Most Wonderful Time Medley and topped with one of the gold stars. These tags were finished off with some of 3/8″ Real Red cotton ribbon.
Hope you enjoyed todays project and have a go at making your own gift tags.
Who doesn’t love cosying up under a patchwork quilt when its cold outside, I know I do and thats whats inspired this patchwork card. Each little patchwork square measures 4″ x 4″ and is cover with 16 1″ squares. I chose two patterns of the main colour, one of a contrasting colour and one white based pattern and I’ve used the same basic pattern for each card, just varied the papers used.
I made one card in Cherry Cobbler and one in Night of Navy. Each card base measures 5″ and is made from Whisper White Thick Cardstock. I then cut a matt of either Cherry Cobbler or Night of Navy measuirng 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″. I then added a Gold foil layer measuring 4.5″ x 4.5″ and onto this I added my little patchwork sqaures.
I finished each card off with a Gold Foil Circle, a cardstock tree from the Pine Tree punch and and a greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas stamped on the small banner from from the Smooth Sailing die collection.
I love the patchwork effect and it’s the ideal way to use up all those little scraps we have left after a crafting session. I’m going to make some more cards with this effect very soon.
This pair of cards feature the Pine Tree Punch to build up larger Christmas trees. Each tree is made up of nine punched trees, punched from the Wrapped in Plaid Speciality DSP.
I’ve based one card on Night of Navy and one on Shaded Spruce and given each one a gold foil star punched from the Twinkle Builder Punch.
This is a quick and simple card which would be easy to mass produce if you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, you can also use any papers you’ve got to make the tree.
The Perfectly Plaid bundle is one I’m just getting round to using and I’m finding it great for quick but stunning cards. This one took less than ten minutes to create and I think it looks fab.
I’m a huge fan of the Feels Like Frost dsp, it makes gorgeous backgrounds and I think this pattern works well with these tree stamps.
I stamped the greeting on some seperate card and fussy cut round the “Christmas Cheer” and added this to the bottom of the trees with some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few rhinestone from the Noble Peacock collection finish the card off beautifully.
I love how this card turned out. It’s simple but classy and think its adesign which would work well with most of our Stampin’ Up! colours, which colour would you chose?
