Hello everyone! Kim here with a Christmas card with a pink color scheme to it. I like using non-traditional colors whether it’s for Christmas cards or any other occasions that have an expected color scheme. So here is how this card came together:
used Silver Bells Tags from Kaiserkraft-I used two of them because I wanted the front and the back. I removed the metal piece because I knew I didn’t plan on using the strings that come with the tags.
for the little hole I used pink stone Nuvo drops (QUICK TIP: when you put it down and you want a nice rounded bead don’t be afraid to whack the card against your hand or on a table it will help round the drops out)
This card came together rather quickly and if you only used one tag you could use it for your sentiment for six cards! And you would still have six tags that you could use for tags. Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to visit the blog! I hope you get a chance to do something crafty today!
Card 1 is an A2 size card, I cut the gold glitter paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/5 and a piece of the pattern paper to 3 X 5 1/2 inches. I adhered the glitter paper to the card base and then centered the pattern paper and adhered it. I used glue dots to adhere the tag so the person receiving it could use if they want!
Card 2 is an A2 size card and I cut a piece of pattern paper to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inches and adhered it to the card base. I cut a piece of silver glitter paper cut to 4 1/2 X 3 inches. I used my cropadile on the front two ends of the card and glitter paper, then I centered the glitter paper and adhered it to the panel. I added the tag on to the glitter paper and that’s it!
Card 3 is an A2 size card and I cut two panels from the pattern paper to about 1 9/16 inch and a piece of the silver glitter paper to 1 1/8 inch. After I adhered all the panels, I added a tag to the inside of the card and that finished that one up.
For my final card I cut a panel from the pattern paper to 4 X 5 1/4 inches to leave a border around the A2 size card. I adhered the tag to a scalloped rectangle that I cut out with a die that was just a little longer than the tags and slightly wider. I added the rectangle piece a little off center on the card.
That’s it for me today! Be sure to check out Scrapping for Less for all the sales!
To create this card I chose some coordinating patterned paper from the Carta Bella pack and trimmed them to fit my A2 size card base. I used some vellum to tone down the pattern paper and to attach my tags on without it looking too busy.
I chose to use the two different tags and adhere them to each other, one staggered behind the other. I then attached the tags to my vellum, and then the vellum to the card. I used the twine included in the gift tag pack and tied a bow, attaching it with Glue Dots to the top of the tags.
I finally added some enamel dots I found in my stash to finish off the card. This card is great if you need to put something together in a flash. I do have a quick process video if you would like to check it out.
Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a fun idea for prepackaged tags… a Gift Card Holder Tag Card…? Well, I’ll need to work on the name… lol…but basically I made a couple of super cute and fun interactive cards using the beautiful Kaisercraft Silver Bells Tags and they are holding a gift card!! Let’s have a look…
First, I cut my layers of patterned paper and adhered them to a red card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I then adhered the card front to a white card base. I trimmed the red mat piece for the tag to 2-1/4 x 3-1/2″ and punched a hole using my ancient Crop-a-Dile allowing me to use the included string… so the recipient could pull the tag using the string. I was just going to adhere the gift card directly to that piece but then I got to thinking that it would be fun to have a piece of card stock across the card and then have the tag tuck in behind it. So, I cut another piece of the red card stock the same size and adhered it to the back of the tag being careful to only adhere the top portion so I had an opening on the bottom to tuck. I cut the red card stock to go across the card and die cut it with a scalloped stitched border die. I adhered it to the card using a strong scor-tape being careful to only add the tape to either side of the card stock so I’d have an opening to tuck the gift card behind.
And then I stamped and heat embossed a surprise sentiment behind the tag!! So fun! I used the My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes for the sentiment. I stamped it with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine white embossing powder.
Here you can see the other side of the tag where I’ve adhered the gift card using glue dots.
Here’s the second card that I made using all the same steps as the first card only with the other style of tag and different patterned papers from the same Simple Stories Country Christmas paper pad. I also changed up the card stock to coordinate with the aqua colors in this tag.
I forgot to mention above that I tied some white baker’s twine around the string of the tags. I thought it was a fun way to add a bit of white to the tag.
I tried to coordinate my gift cards to the colors of the cards… lol. I couldn’t believe I still have my Amazon gift card from last Christmas! Guess who’s going shopping!?!
This picture shows the opening between the card stock layers that makes it possible to tuck the tag on the card. I know sometimes that a visual can help so I wanted to share this too.
I sure hope that you’ve enjoyed the cards I shared today and that they’ve inspired you to get creative with your designs!!
Hello Everyone! Today I am creating four cards using gift tags from the Kaisercraft Silver Bells tag pack. I thought it would be fun to create four cards that vary in time and/or skill and each one is still a fabulous looking card! In no particular order; I’ll describe how I created each card.
I love adding glitter paper to my Holiday cards. This Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice comes in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets and is perfect for adding to your cards as a panel. While, I love the glitter paper; I didn’t want it to be the only layer so I created this snowflake panel to play off the snowflakes on the tag. I used a Snowflake embossing folder and Bristol Smooth card stock to create the layer and then added some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to make the snowflakes pop! The Silver Bells tag packs contain 6 each of 2 designs (12 total) and do come with twine but I chose to dig into my stash and find this really sparkly silver ribbon to use instead. I added the tag with some foam adhesive and all done!
This card is a great layout for needing a card in a pinch. The main panel is pattern paper. I always want to add some sparkle so I trimmed down some Sticky Back Silver Glitter paper by Darice for the left edge. I added some ribbon to the tag and added it to the card using foam tape. Easy, peasy!
I had to add a shaker card to the mix! This tag has so much going on I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to use pattern paper or just use the Gold Glitter paper and….. the Sticky Gold Glitter paper by Darice won! I cut the Gold Glitter paper with a rectangle die and then temporarily adhered a tag where I wanted the shaker window to be. I used a craft knife to cut the Gold Glitter paper around the tag to create my window.
Before removing the backing on the glitter paper, I put the piece on my card base where I wanted it and added the tag to the cardbase through the opening. I then took the backing off the glitter paper – added the acetate and foam tape all around the window opening (which was tricky since now the adhesive on the back was completely exposed). I thought I would like to add a bow to the bottom of my card base so I added the white and gold twine on the back so all I had to do was tie a bow in the front. Next, I sprinkled a sequin pack from my stash all over the tag and carefully laid my panel down.
The twine ended up being too thick to create a nice looking bow – I tried a knot and that seemed too big as well. So I ended up cutting it down and tucking it in behind the panel.
The last card I made involves a stencil and some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse! I taped down the dots stencil and used a palette knife to spread the mousse over the stencil. Once done, I removed the stencil and left the card to dry overnight. To finish the card – I used the piece of Sticky Gold Glitter paper that I cut out of the panel from the previous card an used it as a mat for one of the Silver Bells tags. I added the piece directly to my card front and voila!

Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icons and Scrapping for Less Paper pack in collection #2 of this month’s FOTM kit!
Here is what I created:
First, I need to apologize.
Teresa and Kim have this AMAZING card kit and
they pack in a TON of goodies and I have been playing safe. I have not been using all the embellishment’s
in the kit. So, for my sneak I stepped
out of my comfort zone and used the Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icon pieces. I will admit that I scrap lifted the
idea/layout from Stacy (here). I also
used a die that did NOT come in the kit.
Hurry and grab this kit because it’s ADORABLE!
To me it means I can dress up, be a girly girl, get all glammed up and go out on the town with my “Dapper Man”…of course, since I am a laid back at home kind of gal that doesn’t happen very often.
So, take advantage of this elegance in this kit and make some very unique and different cards for those sophisticated, elegant friends that you have in your life!
Join the Design Team and some wonderful guest designers as they share great inspiration for you. So join in and hop along with us! I know this unique kit won’t last long so head on over and grab a Flavor of the Month kit for yourself.
Don’t forget the Rafflecopter over at the SFL blog. Thanks for joining us today.
Hello everyone! It’s Stacy here up today on the SFL blog. Are you enjoying your summer? Every middle of July my family and mother/father in law take our yearly vacation “Up North” to the cabin on the lake. We live in Southeast Minnesota so for us “Up North” is about an hour south of the Canadian border, about a 7 hour drive north across the state of Minnesota. We have lakes down around where we live, but nothing like what there is “Up North”. My husband and FIL fish morning and night in search of that “monster fish”. While the women stay back at the cabin relaxing and enjoying the summer.
I always pack a small kit of crafting supplies to keep my brain busy. I go stir crazy if I can’t create every so often. This time I chose a couple of paper pads and their matching ephemera packs. For this blog post I’m going to share the 17 cards I made with only half of the paper pad from the Kaisercraft Party Time collection. They are simple but yet I think they pack a ton of cuteness. I hope you like them!
