Here is my take on the Christmas Tag.
I used Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge die to make my tag base. I used the third die to die cut one using white cardstock and the other using an older Kaisercraft gold foiled music pattern paper. I adhered the pattern paper to the white postage stamped edge die. I love the gold foil music pattern paper. Perfect for Christmas theme. I punched a hole on top of the panel and threaded red twine.
The other elements on the tag are all dies from Simon Says Stamp – the new Pine Needle Trio die, Season’s Greeting die and Rylynn Snowflakes die. The sentiment and the pine needles are die cut using pattern paper from the same Kaisercraft Christmas paper pad. The snowflakes is diecut using gold foil cardstock.
To add dimension, I clustered the pin needles with snowflakes on top to adhere on top of the tag panel and stacked three sentiment die cut with the pattern paper die cut on top and adhered below the cluster. I love the use of rhinestones for Christmas cards. Here I have used red rhinestones from Kaisercraft to embellish.
Now I also made another one but this one different. This tag has cooler blue colours.
Exactly the same layout, dies and use of rhinestones but colour is different.
The snowflakes is diecut using silver glitter cardstock. The pine needles using a blue pattern paper also from Kaisercraft pattern paper but a different one to the top.
Sentiment is stacked and glued for added dimension. And I used blue rhinestones here.
Hope you liked both my tags. All the supplies used to make these tags are listed below.
