Cre8tive Hands Friends Blog Challenge – Gift Tag

I haven’t used digi images for my cards before – only stamps, so it is taking a little bit of time getting used to them and coming up with ideas for them…but it’s very very exciting to try something new…
I’m sharing a tag today….the white cardstock base of the tag has been die cut using the largest Labels Eight Spellbinders die and I have used a stencil and distress inks to create the background for it…at the top I have used two circle punches to create the circles to fit around the hole of the tag…this also prevents the ribbon from ripping the paper….
I have printed out the digi and die cut it using a much smaller one of the Labels Eight die and the coloured it in using markers and distress inks…I have used adhesive foam underneath the digi before placing it on the tag to give it a bit of a dimension…Finally I have stamped the sentiment above the digi….

Post#135 Merry Christmas Green & Red Shaker Card

I made this shaker card using the WRMK fuse tool and a photo pocket…the card is not bulky at all which means that it can be posted normally with no extra postage or special packaging..

I started with a piece of green cardstock 5×12″ and scored the long side at 4″ and 8″….this is so that one section gets folded in to create the backing section for the shaker pocket….which also means that the section between the two score lines would be the front of the card and had to be die cut for the shaker to show through….I also die cut and embossed a thin frame from red card stock to go around the die cut space…

Once the shaker pocket was filled with sequins,I stamped an image of a scarecrow with white ink and attached the pocket at the back of the die cut space and glued in the backing section of the card….all that was left was to attach the stamped sentiment and the card was ready…

I’m quite pleased with how this card has turned out….hope you liked it too…

Post#132 Colourful Snowflakes Card

For today’s card,I wanted to step away from traditional Christmas colours but still keep the festive feel….
So I started with a beige base and rounded two sides of the card base…I selected a dark brown front panel and rounded two edges for this as well….then I glued die cut snowflakes in bright colours onto the front panel..
I added the sentiment near the base of the card and also added a gold rhinestone in the middle of each snowflake…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#130 – Christmas Shaker Tag

Today I’m sharing a Christmas tag with a small shaker element…..I think that gives the tag a bit of a festive feel….
I started by die cutting the base of the tag using labels eight nesting dies from spellbinders….I then die cut about 6 small circle frames from white cardstock and stuck them one on top of another near the base of the tag….then put in a few sequins and sealed it using an acetate circle…and finally die cut another frame in blue and glued it on top….
Once the shaker section was ready I quickly attached the stamped sentiment and a few sequins and pearls …I glued a 3/4″ red circle and a 1/2″ white one near the top of the tag and and punched a hole for the ribbon…
Hope you liked this tag…
