Day 15 wecomes guest and sponsor, Concord & 9th!
I had great fun making this trio of tags:
For the first two tags I made, I inked up a festive Turnabout stamp - and even remembered to photograph it before cutting it up! :D
Even with all the tools, I rarely stamp these perfectly, but that's almost always okay! Once I had stamped this, I cut two tags from it using one of the Holiday Cheer tag dies. First I made this:
To get the larger red tag base, I simply layered the smaller tag on a slightly larger rectangle, then trimmed the two top corners. I stamped the tree, the ornaments, the sentiment (making it fancy with some perforations) then put it all together and topped the tree with a gold star.
I like that C&9th has included a die for cutting out the ornament AFTER you layer the hanger on top. I also like that the Happy Holidays sentiment just barely fits the width of the tag. :D
Since I had the Holiday Cheer dies out, of course I was going to make another tag:
The tag tucked in, and...
... pulled out. I cut the tag and the centre ornament (okay, slightly off-centre; I am CONVINCED it moved when I laid the top plate on, despite being taped) at the same time, then folded and adhered it into its pocket form. A few stamps on the insert, and all done!
So much inspiration on Tracey's blog today, as always! Don't forget there are prizes, too! :)
