Happy New Year – Candy Hearts Blog Hop
Happy New Year – Candy Hearts Blog Hop. Welcome to our December blog hop. Today we are sharing New Year’s themed projects, and I am excited to share a gift set with you. After reading my post, I hope you will visit the blog post of the next person on the list. Be sure to hop around to see the great projects the Candy Hearts have created for you!
My project is a bottle tag and a coordinating card. It will be a perfect set for a hostess gift, but since we likely will not need those this year, it can also serve as a gift for a neighbor, a client, family, or anyone who is deserving. The silver foil sheets are good for “dress-up”, and the glam tag and card are now party-ready, so bring on the confetti and fireworks!
The silver foil is the star of this show, and my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine got a workout. However, both the tag and the card are simple, and they came together pretty quickly. Here are some brief instructions for making this set.
The Bottle Tag
From the silver foil, cut a ~5″ x 1″ strip, and crop each end with the banner punch. Use the largest stitched circle die on the silver foil, and the next largest on white card stock, and cut both with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss, then layer the white on the silver and adhere. Use the snowflake dies to cut two snowflakes, and then layer them on the white circle. Stamp the “New Year’s Wishes” on a strip of white card stock in Smokey Slate ink, then trim it to 2-1/4″ x 1/2″. Dab each edge in the ink for a light gray border. Adhere the sentiment to the snowflakes with dimensionals, adhere the finished circles to the silver banner, then glue the ribbon to the back of the banner. Drape over a bottle and your tag is gift-giving ready!
Make a white card base, then add a layer of 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ silver foil sheet. Cut a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of white card stock. Emboss it using the Tasteful Texture embossing folder, then center the largest die and cut a snowflake. Use the word dies to cut “Happy, New and Years”, and adhere the words on the white panel around the snowflake. Adhere the white panel to the card base on the layer of silver foil. The shine of the foil will show through the negative space of the snowflake. Beautiful!
