Traditional Holiday Tag

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.

All About Presents – CASE the Catalog

First of all, it’s all about presents in this weeks CASE the catalog.  The project features the Bring on the Presents stamp set and All the Presents Thinlits from page 16 of the Holiday Catalog.  I’m very fond of these products and what cute projects you can create with them.  All the projects on that page of the catalog are great.  There was just something about this card that attracted me.  Maybe it’s the non-traditional color, or probably the bows. 

Either way, I’m all about presents and hope you are too!

I plan on creating another one and maybe even more to use right on my packages as a tag.  The bows are also fun to color and when you raise them with the Dimensionals, they just sort of pop.  This catalog is so wonderful and I enjoy all the projects.  It’s been hard choosing one each week because I enjoy them so much.

All About Presents

The colors are: Mint Macaroon Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Mint Macaroon, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler ink pads (the Cherry Cobbler is on the tag).  The Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends are used to color the bows and the Gold Metallic Thread is used as well.  Use Stampin Dimensionals and adhesive to adhere the bows. To ensure lines are straight, I recommend using the Stamparatus.  

Finally, sometimes the non-traditional colors make cards that much more appealing.  Taking a card up a notch and making it stand out can make people admire it that much more.  Add some dazzle or some fancy accessories and give it character.  Maybe even use another color.  It’s all in your imagination. 
I also hope you enjoyed this weeks CASE the Catalog.
