Jennifer McGuire inspired dimensional gift tag

I watched this video by Jennifer McGuire recently and her three dimensional die cut tags inspired me to create my own:

I cut the second largest tag shape from the “Cutting Tags” set by Little B and stamped the “Snowy Backdrops” by Lawn Fawn in Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink on top of some pool colored cardstock.

For the star, I used the “Stitched Stars” dies from Gina Marie Designs and cut 5 stars out of bright blue cardstock. I used strong double sided adhesive to create my 3 dimensional star, but found it difficult getting the stars to adhere completely with tape, so I switched to Tonic Nuvo’s deluxe adhesive. I’ve been using that adhesive ever since I watched Amy Rysavy use it in her videos a few months ago – I LOVE IT! A little bit goes a long way and the tip is narrow enough for most applications without requiring a fine/needle tip. It is much easier on my hands than Ranger’s multi medium in the matte finish.

I cut the sentiment using the “Merry” die by Mama Elephant, out of some silver glitter cardstock by DCWV. I then added ice blue gems to my star on the three points on both the front and back sides. I loved that effect so much from Jennifer’s video that I had to recreate it. It makes the most brilliant sparkling effect when the tag catches the light.

I finished my tag by tying some blue and white twine through the hole. This is obviously not a tag you can mail but it will look stunning on a gift for someone special.
