12 Days of Christmas: Day 7

Happy Friday! It's Day 7 of the 12 Days Kraft-y Hearts Blog Share. (It's also Pearl Harbor Day, so please don't forget your veterans.)

Today I'm sharing a little tag project that is similar to one I did earlier. You can see it here. This time, however, I thought I would live up to the Kraft in Kraft-y Hearts!

For all of the cutting and scoring dimensions, click here. For this set I used the Dakota collection. I wanted to be able to use some of the tags for non-Christmas holiday gifts, so I kept the theme neutral. The wallet is made with Barn Red cardstock. I layered the top with pattern paper that I stamped using snowflakes and sentiments from the "Snow Flurries" stamp set [retired] by Close To My Heart. The snowflakes are stamped in Sky Exclusive pigment ink and the sentiment is stamped over those using Black Exclusive dye ink. The snowflake is cut from Kraft cardstock at 2 1/2 inches using the Artiste Cricut cartridge. I used Whisper Exclusive pigment ink to stamp a few snowflakes on the snowflake and inked the edges with the same ink. I added some Opaque Pearl adhesive gems and popped the snowflake up using dimensional adhesive. I tied it all together with some bakers twine.

Here are the inside pockets:

And here's a picture with the tags.  I used some of the images from the Very Merry stamp set (October Stamp Of The Month), and used a combination of dye- and pigment-based inks. "Peace" is from the Snow Flurries stamp set and "Joy" is from a set that is part of the Art Philosophy Cricut collection. I inked around the edges of the tags using Barn Red Exclusive dye ink.

So what do you think? Leave me a comment to be entered in my give away that I'll be conducting on 12/12/12. (The winner will receive a Capture the Date stamp set and a Chocolate Exclusive Ink dye ink pad!)

Hop on over to From My Bungalow and grab a little inspiration for the weekend from my oh-so-talented friend, Lynn Darda.


  1. You must know I LOVE this! Those Kraft tags and snowflake are right up my Kraft-lovin' alley. I think your tag wallets are such a great gift idea! I must remember to use those sweet little words with that AP set too.

  2. Stamping Sky on the Dakota paper is genius - with a beautiful result!

  3. You were really thinking outside the box by using Dakota. The results are FABULOUS! You've inspired me towards those pigment inks ... thanks!
