tag 1Silhouette Gift Tag

As I was playing around with my Silhouette yesterday, I decided I would make a gift tag using the Inlaid Die Technique from Dazzling Diva Challenge #52.   The fun part about this project was that I was able to play around with my Silhouette and size my gift tag just the way I wanted. I even added an inlaid snowflake into the tag using the aluminum side of the Scarlet Red Craft Metal Sheet.  

Once I finished designing my gift tag, I placed my metal sheet on the Cutting Mat, secured it with Washi Tape, went over with the brayer, and ran it through my Big Shot. I was amazed at how easy this was to do and it allowed me to created a metal embossed gift tag in less than 2 minutes.  

As you can see, I embossed and sanded the background of the tag and then placed adhesive along the back and attached it to the card stock. Then, I placed adhesive along the back of the snowflake and inlaid it into the gift tag. It was so easy!

tag 2Outside of the Box

When I originally chose the Sparkle and Shine Stamp Set  from Neat & Tangled, I had a completely different project in mind.  Then, Kate Capper, one of my design team members created a card that blew me away and my idea was gone.

I knew I wanted to focus on the holidays this week and so after looking over the words of the stamp set I knew I could pull it off on this tag. Then, I made a BIG MISTAKE right underneath the sentiment and needed to find a way to cover it up.

Adding the rhinestones was the perfect touch as it paired nicely with the sentiment and you can’t see my mistake.  Sometimes with a little creativity you can cover up your mistakes and you don’t have to start all over again. 🙂
