All sorts of gift tags/cards!

OK, so not al sorts, but two different styles.

We did this last night at the Hostess Club. This is a fantastic group of ladies that
get together here once a month! So we did some heat embossing, and tag makin'!

Cardstock: real red, night of navy, whisper white, shimmery white
ink: versamark
accessories: silver elastic cord from the holiday mini, 1 3/4 circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, detail silver embossing powder, distressing tool from the cutter kit, 1/16" circle punch
Stamps: Serene Snowflake from the Holiday Mini

INSTRUCTIONS for circle gift tags:
cut cardstock into 2x4 strips
fold andscore in half
slide the folded half into your punch first, but not quite all the way, and punch out your circle. It should open like a mini card
punch along the score line and thread with silver elastic cord and tie
Rub your whisper white/shimmery white cardstock with your Embossing Buddy to avoid emobssing finger prints!
Stamp a small snowflake image - or other Christmasy image - in versamark, then sprinkle with silver detail embossing powder, over your powder pal! Shake off excess EP.
Heat emboss.
punch out your snowflake with the 1 3/8 circle punch and adhere to your cardstock tag.

VOILA!! :)
LOTS of fun, and useful, and you can make these for any gift giving occasion! :)

Have a fabulous day, and don't forget about the RIBBON and BUTTON share!!
