I love to see pretty tags on holiday gifts...
The design was stamped in VersaMark ink on a piece of white card stock. It was embossed with white embossing powder. I like to use an embossing buddy before stamping so that the embossing powder will stay where it belongs when the heat tool is used.
The green tag is 3" x 5 1/2".
The blue tag below was made with one of the Chalk Talk framelits. I made the tag longer than the size of the framelit by adjusting my cutting plates. The finished tag measures 2 1/2" x 5 ". Here's how it was done:
First I completed my stamping on a piece of white card stock. Then I positioned the framelit over the stamped area that I wanted to include on the tag.
Next I cut the top of the tag, keeping the top cutting plate above the bottom edge of the tag.
To make the second cut I moved the framelit down the tag to make the tag longer. I kept the framelit in the cutting line, and kept the top cutting plate below the top of tag. Then I made the cut without cutting the top of the tag. Not so hard to do, and I was able to add extra length to the tag to accommodate my design. The tag was layered over a piece of card stock.
The colors of the ink and card stock are Marina Mist. The ribbon is Baja Breeze seam binding, but the colors blend very nicely.
I appreciate your visit to my blog. I am always happy to see your comments and will answer any questions you may have about this technique.
Have a happy stamping day!
