Believe In The Magic Of Christmas Gift Tag

December 7, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Believe in the Magic of Christmas Gift Tag, which is perfect to add to any Christmas gift or gift bag this holiday season. To create my gift tag, I’ve used a variety of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies the Planner Essentials Collection.

See my step-by-step below – I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the two snowflakes from the Christmas Collection stamp set and stamp randomly on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamps as needed. You’ll want to stamp a total of four large snowflakes and three small snowflakes. Sprinkle Burnished Silver Modern Gilding Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From the Falalala word, die cut it out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the word down to 2 1/2″. Apply Emboss It Ink to the word. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Three. From the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 you’ll need the star. Die cut the star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the star. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the star. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Four. From the Peace Die, you’ll need the stars. Die cut the star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to three of the stars. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over each star. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. Die cut the Christmas Ornament from the Love, Joy, Peace Ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the ornament. Sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the ornament. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Six. Die cut all the pieces from the Flourished Holly out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Festive Berries Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flourished holly piece and small outline holly leaf. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of the full holly leaves.

Step Seven. Die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. From the Let Your Heart Be Light stamp set, you’ll need the Believe in the Magic sentiment. Apply Festive Berries Distress Ink to the sentiment and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the sentiment into three strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the middle of the Falalala word, making sure the flourish is showing. Foam square the Falalala word to the left side of the tag. Adhere the ornament overtop of the circle.

Step Ten. Adhere the flourished holly together. Adhere the star to the middle of the circle. Foam square the flourished holly to the left hand side of the ornament.

Step Eleven. Adhere the three sentiment strips to the right hand side of the circle. Adhere the three stars as desired around the tag.

Step Twelve. To finish the tag, tie a piece a twine through the hole at the top of the tag.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Believe in the Magic of Christmas Gift Tag.

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here again and I would like to show you how to create this Christmas tag step by step.

  • die cut the larger tag from the Planner Essentials 2 die set from watercolor cardstock
  • stamp the branches from the Christmas Garden set with Distress Inks (Pine Needles, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Bundled Sage)

Step 2: Faux Watercolor

  • mist the whole panel with water –– don’t worry even though this looks a bit messy right now it will all turn out to be a beautiful background

Step 3: Embossing

  • stamp some more branches with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
  • add some embossing to the edges as well

Step 4: Sentiment and Finishing Touches

  • add some splatters with watered-down Distress Ink Pine Needles
  • stamp the sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments set with Versamark onto a piece of torn vellum and heat-emboss it with that same gold embossing powder
  • dye a piece of torn seam binding with all those green Distress Inks and thread it through the hole of the tag
  • add some tiny gold stars around the sentiment

I hope you got inspired to start creating your own Christmas Tags.

Have a Christmasy day.

Ink the edges of the tags using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Write in a date and details about each day using a black pen.

Step 2. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the rectangle box stamp from the Schedule stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Repeat the previous step again and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply the Potting Soil Archival Ink to the flower stamp and stamp onto a piece of kraft cardstock. Repeat the previous step again and stamp onto the same piece of kraft cardstock. On the white soft cardstock, sprinkle Spring Green Magenta Nuance powder overtop of the flowers.
