Here’s my 2nd card. I CASEd myself.
Here’s what I used:
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes (sentiment), Delightful Decorations,
Paper: Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP, Soft Suede, Whisper White,
Ink: Soft Suede, Real Red,
Accessories: Ornament punch, Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, Soft Suede marker, Eyelet Border punch, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, 4 silver pearls, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Corner Rounder punch, Silver Elastic Cording, 1″ circle punch, 3/4″ circle punch, Dimensionals
And my 3rd project is lots of tags! These were so easy and fun to make! For the first set of tags I used a stamp in the Delightful Decorations stamp set. I inked it in Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy, Real Red, and Old Olive. After I inked the stamp in one of those colors, I used the Black marker to color over the words and then I stamped it on a single sheet of Whisper White. Then I punched it out with the Ornament punch, punched a hole at the top with the 1/8″ circle punch and ran 5″ of Silver Elastic cording through the hole.
The 2nd set of tags is another stamp in the Delightful Decorations set. It was inked in Riding Hood Red, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Handsome Hunter, and Crushed Curry then stamped on a single sheet of Whisper White then punched out with the Ornament punch. For the center I used Silver Foil punched with the 1″ circle punch. I stamped the small decoration with the same color as the ornament then punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch. I’ve used a Silver Pearl in the center of each and stamped the “To: From:” on the back in Basic Black. That stamp is from Tag Time (retired).
For the 3rd set, I took a piece of Festive Finery DSP (retired) and folded it in half. Then punched it with the Ornament punch making sure the fold at the top of the paper was inside the area to be punched so that the fold at the top remained after it was punched. This DSP is one-sided so the inside of the tag is white. I used the Tag Time “To: From:” stamp on the inside. Again I used Silver Foil punched with the 1″ circle punch and stamped the other image for the center and punched it with the 3/4″ circle punch. Silver Pearls were also used in the center but you could use silver brads for both.
