Happy Friday, peeps! I have two projects to show you today, one I am pretty excited about, so be sure to scroll down and read it all! My card uses the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week:
and I was able to use some of the beautiful Fresh Prints DP:
I had seen some beautiful burlap roses on Pinterest (you can see the tutorial HERE) and I thought one would be pretty on this card. I made mine with SU’s burlap trim and decorated it with a hat pin and a diecut heart embellished with our jumbo pearls.
Now obviously, this would never fit into an envelope, so I thought I would make a “hanger” to fit on the outside of a gift bag, on which to hang my card. I have actually made these before, but now that we have the Tag Topper punches, they are even easier! (I know there are dies out in the stamping world as well for these, so this is not my original idea!) And, this only works for cards that have top folds. So here we go!
I used a piece of cardstock 5 1/2” x 2” (or just a hair under 2”) and punched each end with the Tag Topper punch. I slit the tag piece at the top from cutout to cutout…you can do this with an Xacto knife or just with scissors…..and adhered JUST THE TOP PORTION to the gift bag with Sticky Strip. If you adhere the bottom portion, you won’t be able to slide your card in! You can also use a glue dot on the ends of the tag for extra hold. You can barely see the slit here (and just ignore that piece of white cardstock under it…I am “recycling” a used bag!):
Then just slide the card into the slit:
And here’s how it looks on the bag:
You can embellish the hanger any way you like! This is a Valentine’s card, so I added a Valentine sentiment and some hearts, and here is the inside:
Thanks for visiting today!
Now, a continuation of yesterday’s trip to the hairdresser:
