Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions Tag Christmas Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions bundle has a wonderful set of sentiments and the Very Best Triple punch which allows you to create custom sized fancy labels and simple angle top tags. I used the label for this card, and today I’m using the other punches to make a pretty layered tag for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Sweetest Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue and adhered two Wonderful Snowflakes to the card front. I used the angle punch of the Best Trio punch to trim each top corner of a Basic White and a Real Red panel. I embossed the Real Red panel with the snowflakes from the Wintery 3D embossing folders. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the bottom of the Basic White panel.

I colored the holly leaves and pine sprig in the sentiment with my Garden Green watercolor pencil and adhered the stamped tag to the top of the embossed Real Red tag with liquid glue. I am pretty pleased with how even the borders are! Then I used the Best Trio ribbon hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the layered tag. I looped a length of Garden Green ribbon and a length of Real Red ruffled ribbon through the hole and tied them off with a length of gold trim, making a bow at the top.

I cut a pine sprig from Garden Green using the sprig die from the Christmas Banner dies. I used the Christmas Pinecone dies to cut Soft suede and Brushed Gold foil to make a small layered pinecone. I adhered the pine sprig and pinecone to the top of the tag with glue dots and adhered the tag to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the tag with red rhinestone gems for the holly berries.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions stamp set in Garden Green ink on a Basic White panel. Isn’t this the sweetest Christmas wish for the inside of a card? I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Sweetest Christmas DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

It’s not a fancy tag topper, but it’s perfect for a custom sized tag, and pretty easy to pull together. And I love the sentiments in the Stampin’ Up! Very Best Occasions stamp set! I’m glad I got to use these Christmas sentiments and I’m glad that these items will be carrying over!
