I’m not sure what happened yesterday but my “to do” list never really moved. It was one of those days where I just felt like curling up on the sofa with a good book. So that’s what I did. I was deep into “The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” by Stieg Larsson and I just couldn’t put it down. So this morning’s simple Sunday project had to be made in record time.
JOY TO THE WORLD
My pretty gift tag began with a small scrap of paper from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. It wasn’t quite the right size so I trimmed it just a bit to 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.
Next I found the “Joy to the world” sentiment in the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. Using Night of Navy ink I stamped it directly onto the DSP. At this point I decided to add some shimmer by ‘painting’ over the snowy branch using a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. Then I set it aside for a moment to dry.
Meanwhile I cut a 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ piece of Night of Navy Card. Then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I mounted the DSP onto the card.
For the tag base I cut a 3″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White Card. After scoring it at 3″ I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder. Before going any further I punched a hole at the top just to the left of the crease using the Detailed Trio Punch. Then I tied some Linen Thread to the tag.
TIP – I cut my tag base from 12″ x 12″ Whisper White Card as that meant I could get eight 3″ x 3″ folded pieces from just 1 sheet!
To finish I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the layered DSP to the tag front. In less than 10 minutes my “Joy to the world” tag was done.
Have you had a look at the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set yet? Here’s some other projects created using this sentiment only set:
- I discovered Santa’s belt buckle
- Have a blessed Christmas
- Gift or card or perhaps it’s both
- Poinsettia Place pieces
