Welcome to the monthly NinaB Designs team blog hop. NinaB Designs is a product designer for a few paper crafting companies including Spellbinders, Want2Scrap and Penny Black, and The Craft’s Meow.

For this month’s hop, Nina challenged the team to create an ornament or tags, which will come in handy in the upcoming holidays.

I created a little tag card that worked great for the Free For All Challenge on Friday, which was to use a negative die cut shape. Β I started with a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Kraft cardstock. The top corners were rounded and the Christmas Tree from Sweet Folk Art was cut and embossed in it’s center. Next a background strip from GinaK Designs Vintage Borders was stamped over it with Brilliance Moonlight White ink and the edges were sponged with the same ink.

A slightly smaller piece of Carta Bella Merry & Bright patterned paper was adhered behind the kraft cardstock. The tree kraft die cut was used as a template to add a pierced border on the patterned paper. The edges of the stitched and a piece of white pompom ribbon was adhered to the bottom. Gingham ribbon was taped behind the Kraft cardstock before it was adhered to the card base, a 3″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half with it’s top corners rounded.

A sentiment from Winter Mittens was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink and cut and embossed with an insert die from theFancy Framed Tag One dies. The sentiment panel was adhered to the card with foam adhesive squares. Yellow cardstock was cut and embossed with the small star die from Sweet Folk Art. It was adhered to the top of the tree. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl were added to the tree and one rhinestone from aSleek Strips Silver Rhinestoneswas added to the center of the star to finish off the tag card.
