We're having a weird kind of day today - a high in the 70s in July! That hardly ever happens. That's pretty amazing, but it's still really humid. Every hair on my head is about 4 times thicker than normal and the gray ones are really crazy! I've gotten to where I just have to say "Oh, well...."
I picked up some great tags at Michaels the other day - all pretty, gold and shiny. They inspired this card and the tags I have for download below. Now this card has something really cool, besides all the pretty gold.
It's front is a die cut panel! I love how it's see through.
Let me give you a tip that I figured out the HARD way: Give yourself 1/4 to 1/2" to work with at the fold. It is REALLY hard to fold over 1/8"!
To figure out what size card base you need measure your die cut panel and add 1/4 to 1/2" to the length. Example: This die cut panel is 4" x 5 1/4". The card base before trimming needs to be 4" x 5 1/2 or 5 3/4". Score it at 5 1/4" from the bottom. You want the base to be the same size as the die cut panel. Fold over the extra and then trim the fold piece to about 1/8" (or the width of the frame of your die cut panel) and glue.
Okay, let's have a little more fun with tags! You can download these HERE.
They are great for foiling with a Minc machine or printing them on different colored cardstock.
Here I printed them on yellow:
Love this paper. I think I've had it about ten years! I so wish I knew where I got this from. It's about 20 inches wide and came on a roll. It is a lovely weight and texture. It would be nice to see what they have now.
You can see how to make a gusseted bag on THIS POST.
I also foiled all of the tags in gold, pink and teal.
Just went really simple with this. So hard to photograph the pretty shine!
Hope you're having a wonderful week whatever the weather is where you are!
