2 New Projects - Gift Tags and a Simplified Card.
Kraft Gift Tags
Attached are a couple of projects I have worked on. The first is gift tags. these are really simple to make. Each design is a craft square, a stamped mandala design, a circle punch and stamped image - some directly on the circle punch and others on another punch out which is then glued to the circle.
The stamped images are colored with marker, pen, colored pencil, stickles glitter glue, etc. Once complete the tag can be quickly assembled - the circle is glued on the front of the card, a hole punched in the corner and threaded with embroidery thread. I did distress some of the edges - some better than others.
Here also is a card I worked on the other day. I tend to want to load up my cards with every embellishment I have so I am trying to work on simplifying. Here is a general card I made that can be used as a thank you, congratulations, birthday, good luck, or " just to say hi" card . I still used quite a few materials but kept to one color scheme in cool hues (baby blue, black, silver/grey) and kept embellishments to a minimum by my standards...... I love the lightly stamped butterflies over the border - very subtle. Less bling - more bang!
This card I will enter into the Addicted to Stamping "Blue Challenge"
I am hoping to enter some more challenges this week so will be back with a few more card postings. Happy crafting!
