Using the same technique of dry and heat embossing from the previous post, I decided to try it on a piece of red striped card stock with silver ink. The resulting look (sorry for the poor too shiny photo) reminded me of a peppermint marshmallow candy tin....yummy memories! I fashioned the embossed stripped Merry Christmas card stock into a giant tag (Little B die set). I further embellished the tag with a Darice gingerbread man (HM Ben Franklin Crafts has lots of wonderful miniature ornaments to choose from) and some little Dress It Up Christmas mice buttons (cut off the shanks with shears).
If you don't mail out too many Xmas cards, you might enjoy using your crafting skills to create gift bags that include card tags. I really enjoy turning a simple white or kraft bag into a one-of-a-kind card bag. Give it a try!
