Since Christmas will soon be here, I wanted to share this traditional holiday tag with you. You can create this Into the Woods Gift Tag to use on a gift bag or wrapped package. It’s perfect for all your holiday needs and can come together quickly. I love the fir tree in the Winter Woods stamp set and with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies, it creates a dimensional effect. You can also get these products in a bundle and save 10%.
First of all, just stamp two trees and use the large tree and smaller tree Dies to cut them out. With the tip of your Bone Folder, lift the tree boughs on the smaller cut piece and then attach to the larger tree with Mini Dimensionals. Lastly, add that “little extra” touch, and use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the top tree layer boughs. It’s great to see the effect on the tag.
The tag base is created by cutting two layering ovals using Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks. Stamp the greeting using Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ pad and add some gems around the base. Also, add the various ribbons to complete the traditional Christmas look. I hope these will help you to complete your final packaging and preparations as we close in on Christmas.
You can get all these items from my online store.
This holiday card features the Detailed Baubles Thinlits from Stampin’ Up! and is a card that can be made rather quickly. At this busy time of year, simple is a good thing! Also, check out the thinlits in my online store – they are on SALE (while quantities last!)
Using the Detailed Baubles dies cut the Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper which is from the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper stack. Next use the 2-1/4″ punch for the round ornament to cut Old Olive cardstock. This will create a base for the glimmer ornament piece. Since there is not a die or punch for the oblong ornament, use the Big Shot Embossing Mat (SALE item) and the oblong ornament thinlit to emboss a piece of the Old Olive cardstock. After embossing, trim around the outer rim of the embossed Old Olive ornament. With the embossing, the oblong ornament fits perfectly inside the cutouts of the glimmer paper. Attach the glimmer ornament pieces using the Fine-tip Glue Pen.
Create card base using Real Red cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″) and top with a layer of Old Olive cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). Cut a top decorative layer from Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″). Attach the ornaments to the decorate layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Thread 1/8″ Real Red ribbon through top of ornaments and adhere to back of designer series paper. With adhesive, attach designer series paper layer to the card base. Complete the card by stamping the greeting tag with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock. Use punch to cut the tag shape. Both the greeting and punch are in the Christmas Traditions Punch Box. To give the tag some definition against the DSP, sponge around the edges with the Old Olive ink. Complete the card by attaching small red bows to the top of the ornaments.
