This Christmas Card was lots of fun to make!
I decided to create a small garland with the Mini Vintage Tags for this card. Since space was limited it needed to be a shorter word and "merry" worked well. I created the letters out of Always Artichoke cardstock using the Billboard Decorative Strip for the Big Shot. The letters were adhered to the tags with mini glue dots that I rolled so they would not be visible. Remember to leave the holes uncovered so the linen thread can be inserted to hold the letters in place.
For this card I used the ‘Merry Christmas" greeting from the Four the Holidays stamp set. Using an Always Artichoke marker to colour only "Christmas" and omit "Merry". I stamped the greeting onto the Crumb Cake cardstock and then added the linen thread with the letters adhering on the back. Next, I layered this piece onto Always Artichoke cardstock. If necessary, you can use more mini glue dots to hold the letters to the cardstock and keep them evenly spaced.
The card itself is Always Artichoke cardstock with layers of Crumb Cake cardstock and a coordinating pattern from the Deck the Halls Designer series paper. I layered the stamped piece to the card with dimensionals.
The Mini Vintage Tags are about 3/4" of an inch wide and feature shimmery gold cardstock inside a silver ring. These petite tags are so pretty and will work with lots of projects and cards. Add a package to your next order!
