Winter Tag/Gift Card Holder

Well, have to head off to work soon (the price I pay for getting other time off to spend with DH while he's on vaca this week), but I wanted to share this tag I made.  Just presented it to my SIL this afternoon with a B&N gift card attached, as she's a book worm like me!  She likes to reuse card fronts, tags, etc. for the following year, so I thought this would be cute.  Or, she can keep it and use it as an ornament!  Overall size is less than 4x6 (not including the ribbon.  Here are some pictures with and without the gift card attached:

My tag and snowman were cut from Lettering Delights SVG files using Make The Cut software with my Cricut.   The Snowman is from the Merriment collection (FREE!!) and the Tag is from the Basic Tags collection.

The tag is cut from plastic packaging, then embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder.  On the back side, I filled in parts of some of the snowflakes using various shades of blue Stickles.

My snowman layers are cut from (bottom to top) orange CS, pearly cream colored CS (I think it was Club Scrap), blue Bazzil textured CS, and dark pink velvet paper from my stash (I believe I purchased it at Michael's before Valentine's day a few years ago).

I added an I-rock gem on top of my pink velvet button for a little more bling.  I attached the snowman to the tag using Liquid Glass to be sure he stays put.  I then added the gift card using Glue Dots.


  1. This is so cute! Can you tell me more about the plastic packaging your using? I think that is brilliant!


  2. Oh WOW....I LOVE the impact of this!!!! It's SO SO SO PRETTY!!!!!!

  3. Lori, That is just precious!!! I LOVE that plastic deal- how neat is that?! *Hugs*
