Every year I make loads of Christmas cards, but this year I am creating tags for friends and family. A handmade tag is a quick and crafty alternative to attach to a gift and even packets of freshly baked biscuits. The tag is often underestimated but this will become my go-to way of adding a quick thank you to gifts – quick and easy to make with loads of impact.
Time: 1 hour
Use a Jumbo dauber and ink the background of a tag using Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink.
On the right edge of your tag use Memento Luxe ink in Rhubarb Stalk and add some darker shaded edges on your tag.
On a sheet of smooth white cardstock mist Summer Sky Fireworks Spray. Use a soft paint brush and brush the ink across the cardstock.
While the Summer Sky ink is still wet, use Lilac Posies and splatter ink over the base. Concentrate on certain areas more to get lots of ink in certain areas. Leave to dry.
Once dry use VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and stamp Christmas Bauble. Cut out and ink the edges.
Use VersaFine Clair ink and stamp a Christmas sentiment repeatedly onto the colored tag.
Use at least 3 colors of Fireworks Spray to add splats to the background and leave to dry or heat set using a heat gun.
Adhere the stamped bauble, flowers and themed embellishments to finish off your tag. As an alternative layer two stamped baubles on top of each other using foam tape.
