Card and Tag

This week, the StampTV MIUM challenge is to make two things that match. It can be a card and tag, box and bag, any two things as long as they match. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Christmas Gift Tag, and Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

I was inspired by Jo Nevill in Day 1 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. I liked the clean and simple look with the sparkly gold stars.

For the tag, I stamped the image and sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with gold. I used the VersaMarker to write the To and From and embossed them. I punched the top of the tag and tied the ribbon on.

For the card, I used VersaMark ink to stamp the ornament randomly onto a piece of Red Velvet cardstock to give a watermark look.  I embossed the ornament and sentiment on white cardstock, sponged the edges and adhered it to the red cardstock. This was then attached to a white card base.

I used the following supplies:
Gina K. Designs: Merry & Bright stamp set
                            Scripty Holidays stamp set
                            Red velvet cardstock and ink
                            White cardstock
VersaMark ink, VersaMarker
antique gold embossing powder, ribbon from my stash
