Poppystamps: Apple Butter Gift Tags

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Morning, y'all!  I'm up again on the Poppystamps blog today, sharing a couple more of my apple butter gift tags.  For the first one, I turned our Bauble Tree Background die into a tag itself; and for the second, I had lots of fun creating a watercolor scene.
Let's get up close and personal with the first.
I started this tag by die-cutting the Bauble Tree Background base from Basic Black cardstock and topping it with a die-cut, from silver, glitter cardstock, Merry Bauble Tree.  It's bottom edge was then decked out with a silver-embossed, on a strip of black cardstock, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape.
A die-cut, from white, glitter cardstock, Ava Snowflake dresses up its middle...
and its top was simply punched with a small hole through which to thread white string, which was tied, in a bow, after being laced through a black button and embellished with lots of fabulous, color-coordinating ribbons and trims, tied in bows themselves.
I used our largest Festival Tags die as a foundation for the second.
It was watercolored and speckled in shades of aqua and turquoise.  I then die-cut the Winter Pine from textured, Garden Green cardstock.  Before popping it out of the die, I sponged it up with VersaMark ink to emboss the layers of snow with white powder.  It was then popped up with foam tape, just as the deer, which was die-cut from Soft Suede cardstock, was.  I couldn't help but give the deer a little, red, rhinestone nose, before splattering everything with Titanium White acrylic paint.
The "the most wonderful time of the year" sentiment was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, along the vertical right edge of the tag.
Before the tag was laced, through a punched hole, surrounded with a die-cut, Crumb Cake cardstock ring, and tied in a bow, another scrumptious, white, glitter, cardstock Ava Snowflake die cut was added, to the tree, to complete the look.
That covers things, for today, friends.  I'll be back tomorrow with another seasonal page for Pretty Little Studio.  Until then, thanks so much for visiting, and have a terrific Tuesday!
