Christmas card and tag set

Good morning,

As it is Monday, I will have a little break from Halloween cards now and show you something special I made for Jana’s pulmonologist. It was totally inspired by the current Inky Paws Challenge #58 , that sketch gave me the idea of putting a circle tag on a card.

I made a gift set, including 2 cards and 4 tags:

I started with stamping the pretty ornament from the Newton’s Nook Designs Beautiful Baubles stamp set along with a circle sentiment from Simon Says Stamp on Copic friendly cardstock. I die cut it with a circle die and put it aside. I made several of these (more than I show here as I want to try more colour combos later), my stamp positioner was a great help with this.

Then I looked for patterned paper. I am addicted to Doodlebug Designs paper pads and still have plenty sheets from last year too. I chose one in colder colours and one more pinky-red. I cut them down to fit the front of an A2 sized card. I also chose coordinating cardstock scraps and die cut a stitched strip.

Then I coloured the ornaments in coordinating colours. It is much easier for me to select the patterned paper first and the colour accordingly, I almost all the time do this. I added some Spectrum Noir shimmer and glossy accent on the top.

While it was drying I made some scalloped circle mats in coordinating colours, and backed them with a white one. I like to have my tags sturdy, the look more high quality this way. I poked a tiny hole on the top of the stand-alone tags and threaded through some silver string.

I adhered the cards together using 3D foam tape under the tags. I also die cut tiny bows (Pretty Pink Posh) from silver cardstock and glued them on the ornament with a drop of Ranger Multi Matte Medium.

A tiny little gemstone in the middle finished this cute set off.
