Pine Tree Tags

Welcome to part three of my Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid Bundle showcase. You can find the previous two blog posts here if you missed them… part 1 and part 2.

We all use a lot of gift tags at Christmas time. Using homemade rather than shop-bought really shows that you have put thought and effort into the whole gift-giving process. Tags are also a great, small canvas to start with if you get overwhelmed when making cards or larger projects.

Let’s make it…

The base of the tag is created from Shimmery White cardstock (which is perfect for watercolouring) and cut out using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. The bottom corners have been rounded using the Detailed Trio Punch.

Having created the basic tag, I used Night of Navy ink and an Aqua Painter to apply a watercolour wash background. The plaid pine tree is also stamped using Night of Navy ink onto Seaside Spray cardstock and cut out using the Pine Tree Punch. This is adhered to the tag using dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and has been stamped vertically in Night of Navy ink. The ribbon is the NEW Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic ribbon and I have secured this with a length of Silver Metallic Thread.

The final touch is provided by a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which help to complete the wintery night scene.
