Can you believe Christmas is a little over a month away? Now it the time to start working on your holiday cards!
I’ve got a fun card to share with you today. I’ll also give the scoop on how to make a matching gift tag to go with it. This little ensemble came together quickly and easily with products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Creating the Wreath
The most time-consuming part of making both the card and tag was creating the wreaths but it adds an impact. I think you will agree.
Began by making the green paper I created the wreaths with. It was so easy! I simply brushed watercolor markers onto watercolor paper and then spread the color with a wet paintbrush.
Once the panel was dry, I adhered it to one of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets so that I could die-cut the wreaths from it. These sheets are perfect for die-cutting elements to use on cards and scrapbook pages as the foam gives die-cuts a little bit of pop.
I also adhered some red cardstock to one of the 3D Foam Creative Sheets and die-cut the bow and berries from it. Now, those berries are pretty small. Rather than picking them up with my fingers, I used a paper piercing tool to move them from the sheet to my wreaths.
Completing the Card and Tag
Once I completed my wreaths, I built both the card and the tag around them. To make the wreaths to stand out, I felt the best way was to let one wreath be the “o” in joy and the other be “o” in Noel.
I adhered the wreaths to the card and tag and then stamped letters to each side of the wreaths. (Don’t have any letter stamps? Consider using letter stickers instead!)
Then I simply embellished the card and tag with some additional pieces of paper and twine. I also added some small foam balls that reminded me of snow. I adhered them to the card and tag with some of Adhesive Dots Micro. These dots are perfect for holding small embellishments to cards, scrapbook pages, and tags.
I hope you enjoyed checking out this card and tag set! Would love to see your Christmas cards and tags. Please leave a link to your Christmas projects in the comments so I can leave you a little love!
