What present is complete without a beautiful Gift Tag created by Nan. I love wrapping the Christmas presents and putting them under the tree. The grandchildren, love to pick them up and oh and ah over what might be in it. They get especially excited when they find one that is just for them.
Anyway, as you know I hand cut the images from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper for the gift bags I made for my customers and I had a few left over so I put them to good use. I punched one side of a 10 x 10cm square of Whisper White card using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and then ran them through the big shot with one of the largest Layering Circle Dies. The resulting tag was embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and then I attached one of the cute little houses I had already hand cut. I cut another tag shape from Whisper White but this time I stamped with a greeting and “to/from” from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp Set using Early Espresso ink. I cut Real Red card using the largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. The Real Red scalloped circle is sandwiched between the two Whisper White tags. I did have to trim some of the Real Red scalloped circle so that it wouldn’t cover the slot for the ribbon.
I used the brown paper that Stampin’ Up! supplies with all my orders to wrap the presents. The tags are attached using curling ribbon. I think they look cute, don’t you.
Unfortunately the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper has already sold out. It was on a while stocks last basis, so I am sorry if you missed out. The Candy Cane Christmas stamp set is on the Year End closeout sale at a reduced price. So if you want this stamp set (believe me you do) then you need to order it right away as these products are on a while stocks last basis as well. I guess the best way to make sure you never miss out is order anything that you want from a catalogue right away.
Bye for now,
