Even though there are only 7 tags showing here, I made 8 different gift tags packaged in cute 2-4-6-8 boxes, that I neglected to take a photo of :-(
I made my own shimmer mist using SU!'s shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol in a mini mister and it added just a hint of sparkle to my tags and boxes. I also used some of the SU! silver elastic cording on each tag.
I just love this Snow Swirled set, it is so elegant! I have also found a new love....Spellbinders Nestabilities. I decided I really wanted to design this card with ovals and have not purchased the oval Bigz die yet so off I went with a coupon to one of those big box store and got my first Nestie. Sorry this picture and the next are a bit on the dark side.
I have loved this Cardinal since I purchased him last year and finally got around to using him. This frame was actually the remaining piece after cutting out the oval for the above card. I just had to use it for something so I ran it through my Big Shot using the Petals A Plenty Embossing folder and then layering over WW cardstock. Then using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Staz On stamped Mr. Birdie and watercolored with reinkers and a blender pen.
My third card was the Holy Family stamp set on the shimmer cardstock using Night of Navy. I embossed the star and Baby Jesus' halo in gold and layered the trimmed Top Note on a gold Top Note.
I ended up with 6 boxes of cards, packaged 6 to a box, 2 of each design, in a clear acetate gift box (yes, I made those too) and was very happy to find out that all six sold!! I really liked the gift box that I stumbled upon and it held 6 cards and envelopes perfectly. Check out Tracy Schultz's blog at www.whoistracy.com
Well, thanks for looking and hopefully I will be back in the next day or so to post pictures of a birthday inivitation I made with the Build A Bear die cuts.
