You easily have enough products there to create at least 8 tags and 16 card panels (not including card bases) and you could probably make more using the patterned papers as card panels! It’s full of crafty holiday fun! I’ve created three cards today in a variety of styles using different items included in the kit!
For my first card I stamped the snowflakes onto a panel of schoolhouse red cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat-embossed it with antique gold embossing powder. Then I used a dark red and white colored pencil to add some interest inside each snowflake.
Next I stamped the sentiment onto ivory cardstock and heat-embossed it with the same embossing powder. I adhered it over a strip of gold glitter tape and adhered it to the panel with foam mounting tape. Finally I added a few gold stickles to the center of the largest snowflakes to finish the card!
For my second card I stamped the snowflakes onto kraft cardstock and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder. I trimmed the panel down and adhered it to a panel of schoolhouse red cardstock. Then I took one of the ivory tags, stamped a snowflake on it, and heat-embossed it with antique gold embossing powder. I added a gold thread bow and adhered it to the snowflake panel. Next I stamped the sentiment on schoolhouse red cardstock and heat-embossed it with the same embossing powder. Finally I trimmed it down to a thin label and adhered it over the tag with foam mounting tape.
My final card was the fastest to put together! I stamped the sentiment onto a panel of patterned paper cut to 3.75″ by 5.5″ and heat-embossed it with antique gold embossing powder. Then I added strips of glitter tape to the sides of a white card base and then added the patterned paper over it. Finally I added a few gold stickles to the snowflakes closest to the sentiment for a little extra sparkle!
