Holiday Tag & Ornament

With the holidays right around the corner, I have been setting aside gift tags.

I thought these would be fun gift adornments that could be transferred to the tree after the present had been opened.

Two die-cut circles mounted together with dimensional foam create the base of the tag.  From the front you can see the Fern Green die-cut circle was stamped with snowflakes and heat embossed in white.   

The circular sentiment was stamped twice on white cardstock – once in red and a second time in black.  Both images were heat embossed with clear powder.  The black image was trimmed and distressed with Antique Linen before being layered with foam on top of the “fussy” cut red image.  The “gift” embellishment was created by stamping the present on white cardstock with Spanish Moss ink.   Lime green stickles were used for accenting as well as a red PITT pen.

The backside of the tag is a white cardstock die-cut edged with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and stamped with “to” and “from” which are a part of the transparent Airmail set.  For wool mittens, two sets of the mittens were stamped in red and heat embossed with clear powder.  Each mitten was painted with Duo Embellishing Adhesive.  After the adhesive dried, leaving a tacky surface, red crushed velvet flock was applied.

You can see more gift tag inspiration all this week on the Penny Black Blog as well as some of my past favorites "here".

These are also are great for cards!
