Christmas Gift Tags | Spruced Up 

If you missed this month’s Online Card Class, I used this same Bundle (Spruced Up) to create the majority of the tags shown. I have a PDF tutorial that includes 6 cards; 3 fun folds and 3 cards layouts using this Bundle to give you more inspiration. CLICK HERE to see it.

One of the best features of the Spruced Up Bundle is how the dies pull “double duty”. The silhouette and the frame are die cut at the same time allowing you to mix and match colors and patterns.

At the writing of this blog post, the Gingham Cottage Designer Paper was still in stock – but hurry! This 48-sheet double-sided package has been marked down to $18! These timeless colors and patterns will be perfect for year-round cards.

This split layer tag is easy to create by die cutting two and cutting away the lower section. That lower section is perfect for stamping the “to/from”.

Amazing dies create amazing techniques! This negative image is easily created by die cutting it inside the center of the tag.

Break out those circle dies! This 3″ circle die was cut down, layered with the Gingham Cottage Designer Paper and adorned with a pom pom top using the circle die from the Spruced Up Outline Dies. Create a few slits around the circle, fluff it up and layer one on top of another for a 3D look.

Ornament & Snowflake Tag

“Double duty” at its best with this sophisticated ornament tag. I mixed and matched the center and outline pieces to create a unique combination.

Stamp and die cut the snowflake to decorate the center of the ornament. Pull the coordination together with black baker’s twine.

Double Layer Split Tag

Crumb Cake cardstock is a fantastic neutral color that goes with everything. I liken it to the perfect “little black dress”. Another plus is the cardstock is light enough to stamp on. Striking and simple!
