Yes, I purchased the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp set (and dies) in order to make tags for some Halloween, Christmas and/or Valentine treats. But, as it turned out, my first project with this bundle was a Halloween card!
We made this card in class this month. Everyone seemed to like it.
Design Notes for Tags Card:
I know there must be a name for this fold, although it’s really just a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11″ card stock with 3 1/4″ cut off. Take the piece that’s cut off and add it to the front of the card.
This card has some nice sparkle and texture to it. I used the Birch stamp and some heat embossing with the new Shimmer Black Embossing Powder. I also added to the glitz with a bit of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon. Here’s a close up to show you the shine factor!
Of course, I didn’t neglect the inside. The stamp for Halloween gives you three tags. So we used a second one inside. I added a Pearl to hide the hole (part of the tag).
Here’s a look at all the stamps in this set.
Finally, I added some of the Designer Paper to the envelope flap to give a little preview of the card. Some folks in my class added the third tag to the envelope.
