Gift for a friend

A friend of mine asked me to make some blank name tags that she could use for her table at Christmas time.  These are so simple to make!

I cut a 1 1/2" x 3" piece of Whisper White Card stock and stamped the Christmas Tree image from the Evergreen stamp set (Item 128973) in Gumball Green (I love this colour!).  Once that had dried really well (you can use your heat gun on low to dry the image), I rubbed over the image with the Embossing Buddy to remove any static.  Then I stamped using Versamark with the other image tree from the Evergreen stampset and then sprinkled with gold embossing powder.  Final touch was a rhinestone which I coloured with the Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker (Item 128979) for the top of the tree and a base of Gumball Green Card stock cut at 1 3/4" x 3 1/4".







I decided to make her a tin to put them in as well. For the tin I stamped using Versamark the tree from the Evergreen stampset and also a snowflake from Snowflake Soiree (Item 127925).  For the tree I embossed with gold embossing powder and the snowflakes are embossing using Iridescent Ice.  Final touch is ribbon and a bow.  I used the 7/8" Cotton Ribbon which is perfect for stamping on - just make sure you let it dry a bit before tying your bow so that it doesn't smear.  Isn't this pretty!







This was really easy to make and makes a great hostess gift.  I know my friend will love it!

Happy Stamping
