Heartwarming Hugs Tailored Tag Punch Christmas Card

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #642.  We are using the colors Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, and Mossy Meadow.  All of those colors are found in the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.


I'm showing a card today that is made using the Tailored Tag Punch.  I have a video to show you just how easy it is to make this card.

The base of this card is Thick Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and scored and folded at 8 1/2.

Pick out the patterns that you want to use from the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper.  Punch out lots shapes using the Tailored Tag Punch.

Start near the bottom of the card front.  Adhere the first two patterned papers.  These should meet in the center of the front.  Make sure they are straight.  The ends will hang over the front a little, but we'll clip that off later.  Go down and finish the bottom.  Look at all the patterns and make sure you like the combinations together.  Remember that these papers all have two sides with different patterns.  All these pieces will hang over a lot.  Trim the edges.  Remember that these parts can be used again if they can be fitted somewhere else.  Now just work up to the top of the card.  Turn the card over and clip away any extra pieces.

Use the Real Red Braided Linen Trim along with the Mossy Meadow Braided Linen Trim (January-June Mini Catalog) to tie around the card and tie together into a knot.

Set up the Merry Christmas stamp from Perfectly Plaid on your Stamparatus.  This will allow you to stamp more than once so that you have a dark crisp sentiment.  Stamp on Whisper White.  Punch this out with the Tailored Tag Punch as well.  Add to the card with dimensionals.

Add Basic Red Rhinestones to complete the front of the card.

For the inside of the card, just finish the bottom with more punch outs.

So here is the video. 


I hope you'll try this technique.  You can make these in a flash.
