Make some cute gingerbread theme tags for your gift giving this holiday season. Inspired by the numerous light brown inks and products that fall into this color scheme, I created these holiday tags to inspire you. Enjoy!
Time: 30 minutes per tag
On your Craft Mat mix a small amount of glossy texture paste and Delicata Golden Glitz inker.
With a palette knife, apply the colored paste to some white cardstock and leave to dry. A nice thin layer is all you need – add as much texture and dimension as you want.
Once the texture paste is dry, use VersaMagic Gingerbread and color the entire piece of cardstock. Blend the ink over the texture paste, then cut a strip about 3cm wide and the length of you tag.
Stamps some Christmas baubles (or ornaments) in VersaFine Clair Nocturne.
Use a small paintbrush and VersaMagic Gingerbread to add color to your stamped baubles (ornaments). Add ink to your Craft Mat, mist with water and pick up the color to paint your images.
Use the direct to paper technique to color half of the length of your manilla tag using the VersaMagic ink pad.
Add irRESISTible Pico embellisher in Shimmer and Desert Sand to your baubles (ornaments) and leave to dry.
Use VersaFine Clair and a sentiment stamp, and stamp repeatedly down the colored side of the tag.
Adhere the paper strip down the left side of the tag and add decorative sewing. Adhere the colored baubles (ornaments) using foam tape for dimension. Adhere one bauble (ornament) flat and cut off overlapping side. Add diamanté and other flourishes to finish it up.
