Scalloped Tags Holiday Projects with Rachel and Candice

Hello everyone! It's Rachel here and I have some Christmas shaker tags to share with you today! I love the size of the Scalloped Tag Circle Dies that were recently released. They're perfect for creating a fun little scene and having room to write if need be. I combined the Scalloped Tag Circle Dies with the cute Merry Mice Stamp Set to make a few double-layer shaker tags that were inspired by some ornaments that Jennifer McGuire made a few years back. You can check out that video HERE.

To created my tags, I first cut two base layers and stamped my sentiment onto the back of each of them. I then used the large Scalloped Circle Tag Die with a basic Circle Die to create a frame of the tag. I quickly die cut about 11 of these frames for each tag and glued 5 of them together for my first layer and 5 for my second layer, leaving one frame left for the final piece to show in the front. I like to create my shaker tags this way because this allows for a very neat and uniform frame that lines up perfectly with each layer below. For the inside of the tag, I used some Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide Ink for my background and splattered it with diluted Opaque White Paint to resemble snow. I also die cut some snow drifts and trees from white card stock using the Woodland Borders Die Set.

Because I used two layers of acetate with stacked frames in between, I was able to add more glittery embellishments than usual because it wouldn't completely cover my images. I love how it looks like a snowy blizzard behind each mouse.

I love how the sentiment stands out on its own on the back of the tag. There is still plenty of room to write a short message. These would also make the perfect ornaments to decorate a Christmas tree if so desired. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy card making!

Hi my Crafty friends, Candice back with you this Friday! If you have noticed a tropical theme from me the past couple of weeks, you can blame it on my family that lives in Florida while I am stuck in the snow! I can only dream (and create) about the warmth! I am showcasing these amazing new Scalloped Tag dies, which come with two sizes, and the larger size is perfect to turn into a shaker!

To create the tropical tags, I used these Sunny Studio products:
I began my tags by first die cutting the scalloped tags from striped pattern paper and using a square die, cut out the center. I then die cut two more scalloped tags from white cardstock, inked the bottom with twisted citron and the tops with spun sugar and stamped the sentiments from Santa Claus Lane & Fabulous Flamingos stamp sets.

To put the shaker tags together, I added acetate behind the pattern tags and filled with sequins. Next, I stamped the flamingos, leaves, fruit, presents, ornaments and candy canes, colored with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies listed above.

To finish the tags, I die cut and layered the christmas lights, colored with Copic markers and added some green Stickles for sparkle! I also added a few accents to the images with a white pen.

I hope you can have fun making some amazing Christmas tags to really show off that gift you so thoughtfully got for someone special! Thank you for visiting and have a Very Merry Holiday!
