Today's stylish gift tag has lots of texture and dimension that is super easy to create. The Two Tags Die for the Big Shot gets us rolling with a cute scallop tag shape from Crumb Cake card stock. I sponged the edges with Whisper White Craft ink, then punched a hole (using a Crop-a-Dile) for tying on the Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.
Hip Tip: The Stampin' Up! Two Tags Bigz Die works best cutting only one layer at a time and using the Premium Crease Pad. The Crease Pad helps to define score lines and intricate details. Use it as the top layer of your "sandwich" in place of a standard cutting pad.
Next, I embossed Wild Wasabi card stock using the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder before punching with a 1-3/4" Scallop Circle. I pierced holes in each scallop before attaching it with Stampin' Dimensionals. The stitched felt Holly & Berries were attached with Mini Glue Dots.
For the sentiment, I used the NOEL image from the Warmest of Wishes Hostess Stamp Set, stamping with VersaMark on Crumb Cake card stock and embossing with White embossing powder and the heat tool. The coordinating Decorative Label Punch crops the image perfectly and also makes a spiffy frame behind it in Cherry Cobbler.
This tag is charming + easy and fun to create! The Two Tags Die certainly makes creating holiday gift tags a breeze, but I end up using it all year long for all kinds of projects - including cute elements on cards and scrapbook pages. It's a definite must have tool in my book!
Tomorrow: One more gift tag with a stitched felt wreath to round out my trio of tags.
