My tag/gift card idea
Woot woot! It's Thursday which means we are in the homestretch for the weekend! Doesn't take much to make me happy does it? My project today is not a card (gasp!) but a gift holder using the Inksentials Manilla tags. The one I used is approx 4 x 8 inches.
What I have done is fold over the bottom portion of the tag 2 inches and then applied Scor tape in 1/8" on each side of the folded portion to make a little gift card holder. I stamped a "To and From" image onto the back which is from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage stamp set. I didn't do anything else to the back so there was room to write a note to the recipient. For the front of my tag I have stamped it with the Impression Obsession background stamp in Damask using Versamark Ink then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then sponged the background with Memento Ink. My image, the lovely Vintage Eyes from the newly released The eyes of fables is colored with copics and the Butterfly swag stamp is colored with spica glitter pens and then heat embossed and covered with a thick layer of UTEE. I know you can't see it in the photo but the UTEE really makes the sparkle from the pens much more vibrant. The sentiment is from Verve and I have cut it out with a Spellbinders die and lined the edge with a Vica Decor glitter liner pen, I am really liking it because it is easy to control the width of your line. Whew, that was a long post for me! I hope you like my idea, you could really change this up easily depending on which image you use.
