Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I have some super textured Christmas tags to share with you today using the new Labels and Tags 2 Dies!
Keep on reading for more tips and project ideas using this new die!
Labels & Tags 2 Die Set
Embellish your cards, layouts, and more, with this innovative and versatile die set. It includes two different label shapes, along with two reinforcer dies so you can add extra detail to your tags. You can also use these three dies to cut the top of a strip of cardstock, allowing you to create customized tags!
Thanks to the versatility of this die set, I was able to make three gorgeous Christmas tags for my nieces. For today, I will show you how I made different festive tags using embossing folders.
3 Stunning Yet Easy Christmas Tags
Everyone can use Christmas tags for holiday gifts. While you want them to look super pretty to dress up your holiday gift, you don't want to spend too much time on them because you know they will just get thrown away.
I have a few simple ways to add extra elegance to your project while keeping things simple enough so that you won't feel guilty throwing them away. Let's get started with the details!
One of my favorite ways to up the elegance factor is to add some embossed details with embossing folders. Luckily, Altenew has several beautiful holiday themed embossing folders that are perfect for adding extra elegance without a huge amount of work!
I began my trio by die cutting three different tag shapes from white cardstock using the Labels and Tags 2 Dies. The die set comes with two beautiful tag shapes, but it also comes with several die tops so that you can customize your tag sizes to fit your needs.
I die cut the three tag shapes, then ran them through my die cut machine using the Classic Pinecones 3D Embossing Folder, Starry Patterns 3D Embossing Folder, and the Poinsettia Cluster 3D Embossing Folder. I splattered all of the embossed tags with some metallic gold watercolors from the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set to add a little extra opulence to the tags.
Make Christmas Tags With a Golden Die Cut Frame
To create some personalization for these tags, I used the Classic Alphabet Die Set to die cut some glittery letters with my nieces' initials! For this S tag, I added a Fine Frames Diamonds die cut, cut from Brushed Gold Metallic Cardstock.
Add Elegance to Christmas Tags With Subtle Foil
This tag featured the Poinsettia Cluster Embossing Folder. The festive texture of the background is perfect! I also added some subtle foil for the sparkling initial.
I added some more white Branches and Berries die cuts as well to help add a little more height and texture to the tag.
Use Embossing Texture for Easy & Stunning Christmas Tags
This last tag features the Poinsettia Cluster Embossing Folder. I accidentally used the wrong side of the embossing folder, so it debossed instead of creating the raised images, but it still created lovely texture! I added some raffia twine to all of the tags to make it easy to add to my nieces' gifts.
Adding texture to your tags with embossing folders is a super easy way to add drama and opulence to your Christmas tags (or any project, really) without adding a ton of time to your tag-making process.
Create a swatch book for your favorite Altenew cardstock! Use the smaller label and add a hole with the coordinating edge die. Once all of your cardstock swatches are cut, write the name of each on the back (with our Fine Liner Pens) and put them onto a small metal ring. You can do the same with ink swatches as well!
