Elf Christmas Gift Tag

This cute Elf Christmas Gift Tag uses the Delicate Baubles Dies.  The idea for creating an elf using the dies is from Connie Babbert at www.inkspiredtreasures.com. She has an array of cards using the dies for holiday characters.  When I saw the elf on the card she created, I knew it would make a cute gift tag. Just so you know – the Delicate Baubles Dies are on the Last Chance List and will be retiring soon so don’t hesitate, place your order ASAP.  In the video below I show you how easy and fun it is to create a gift tag using the dies.

Now, you know how easy it is to recreate the Elf Christmas gift tag.  I made several elf tags to embellish gifts under this year’s Christmas tree.  

My next post will also feature more gift tags using the Delicate Baubles Dies.  Remember, the dies are retiring soon so place your order for the dies while the dies are still available.

Warm Christmas Wishes Holiday Card

Looking for a quick but elegant holiday card? This warm Christmas wishes holiday card is the one to make.  Using the Encircled in Beauty die to cut a frame for the embossed sentiment turns a simple card into an elegant card.  Note the background designer series paper – it’s not from a holiday theme package but from the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. It provides the perfect background for the Cherry Cobbler die cut frame.  TIP: To ensure the sentiment stands out on the card, first stamp in desired ink color. Then, stamp over the image with Versamark and emboss with clear embossing powder. Using the Stamparatus ensures perfect stamping!

Whimsy & Wonder Merry Christmas

This fun Whimsy & Wonder Merry Christmas card  features the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Even the packages used for embellishing the front are cut from the gorgeous designer series paper.  The non-traditional colors in the paper helps to create a fun, cheerful holiday card.  Of course, ask my granddaughter and she’ll tell you that yes, pink is a Christmas color.  She actually has a pink Christmas tree for her bedroom!  So naturally, it is a must that I use the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Below are photos of the card one with a Polished Pink border and one with a white border.  You’ll have to watch the assembly video to learn the details:)

Card Details:
  • Basic White Thick cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″ for form card base.  Scrap piece to stamp and fussy cut the Merry Christmas sentiment.
  • Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper: Snowflake Design layer 5-1/2″ x 4″; fussy cut 4 presents from the designer paper to use on the card front.
  • 1-1/2″ x 4″ strip of Polished Pink In-Color Shimmer Vellum – Cut the strip using the long, narrow die from the Seasonal Labels Dies.  Attach to the front of the Snowflake Designer Series Paper and snip the overhanging edge before attaching to the card base (I forgot to do this in the assembly video!)
  • Add a Wonderful Snowflake Embellishment over the shimmer vellum, then layer the presents, adding the top present with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp Merry Christmas using Polished Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad and fussy cut around the greeting.  Note: select your favorite Merry Christmas font (I used the Christmas to Remember & the Holly Jolly Wishes Stamp Sets) Attach the greeting using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Don’t forget to embellish the envelope flap with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper.  It adds the finishing touch! Be sure to register to follow my posts, I’ll be sharing a Whimsy & Wonder gift tag soon.
