Welcome to another IDEAS Blog Hop where this month our theme is “Fun Folds”. These can get quite complicated so my contribution to the tutorial PDF is a simple gate-fold card that you could adapt and dress up depending on your own skills and experience. Then for today’s blog post I designed a coordinating gift tag. Both the card and tag were inspired by a piece of Earthen Elegance Designer Series Paper (DSP) left over from a previous project, along with with some of the spectacular More Dazzle Specialty Paper.
For my tag base I chose the largest of the flat-topped dies in the Tailor Made Tags Dies. Then I used it to cut a piece of Very Vanilla Card and some of the champagne colour in the More Dazzle 6″ x 6″ Specialty Paper pack. Finally using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I fixed the two pieces together back to back.
Next I needed the zig-zag pattern cut from some of the Earthen Elegance 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the same tag die. The zig-zag used here was what I had left over after making a previous gift tag. This time though I defined the edges of the paper using the bullet tip of a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Having done that I glued the zig-zag onto the More Dazzle tag base.
For my sentiment I chose “for you” from the Layering Leaves Stamp Set. After stamping it onto some Very Vanilla Card using Tuxedo Black ink I cut it out with the hexagon shape from the Something Fancy Dies. Then I added it to the tag with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally I cut 6″ of Moody Mauve twine from the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim. I threaded it through the hole at the top of the tag and tied it in a simple knot. With that my sparkly tag was complete.
For the original gift tag using the same zig-zag paper see my blog post Earthen Elegance inspired.
