Christmas Tags

 A lot of us have started purchasing Christmas gifts.  Now it is time to make tags.  Today I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Ornament  Set 5 and the Tags & More 1 - Lace dies to create two very different tags. I will explain how I created each tag below.

Tags & More 1 – Lace (951)

Ornament Set 5 (1066) 
 Above are the two die set used.

 For the detailed ornament design,  both tags were die cut using Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheets.  They were die cut with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.  The back ornament, for this purple one, was die cut using Purple Iris Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz.  The Gold design was attached over the Shimmer Sheetz.  I used Elizabeth Craft Purple Peel Off Dots in the circles of the die cut.  For the background on this tag, I embossed a piece of white card stock with the Heart Strings Embossing Folder and cut it to fit the tag.  At the top and bottom of the embossed piece, I added a strip of the Purple Iris Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz.  At the top of the tag, die cut Garden Notes Whitepine Bough were attached.  A gold cord was strung through the ornament loop and attached at the top of the pine bough.  A gold cord bow was attached with glue dots then a Star Peel Off Sticker was added just above the bow.  Gold Cording was also added at the top of the tag.  Merry Christmas Peel Of f Stickers were added at the bottom.

Now for a totally different look using the same dies.

 I used the same Tags & More 1 dies to create this tag.  The bottom of the tag was embossed using the Snowflake Embossing Folder. The edges of the tag were sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink. The ornament was created by die cutting the intricate design using Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheets with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back.  You need to use the Metal Adapter plate to achieve a good cut.  The back of the ornament was die cut using white card stock that had the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front, so I could add Copper Silk Microfine Glitter.  The gold die cut was attached over the glitter.  A gold cord was attached to the top of the ornament so it could hang from the Garden Notes Whitepine Bough.  A speckled poinsettia was created with Garden Notes Poinsettia dies.  I used GooseBumps spray to achieve the speckles on the petals and sponged on Tea Dye Distress Ink.  To complete this tag, I added a Gold Holly Peel Off  Sticker Border and Merry Christmas Stickers.

I have created two totally different tags using the other Ornament Set 5 die.  I will post it tomorrow.
