Sunday was the Fall card swap I do with my Stamp Club. I made tags for the little baskets everyone places the cards into. My favorite suite of products for Fall, and maybe in the Holiday Catalog, is the Gather Together products. Of course that is what I used to make the name tags.
I am not very good at the infinity shots that some take of a group of cards and other products they have mass produced. But I think you can see how cute these are.
I really adore the leaves from the Gathering Leaves Dies, part of the Gather Together Bundle. They are perfectly sized, but best of all they emboss and cut at the same time. Whoever invented dies that do that are some of my favorite people!! I cut the three different sizes in different colors. I used Merry Merlot, Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzaz for the leaves.
The sentiment is from the Gather Together stamp set and is stamped in Pretty Peacock. I chose all of the colors from that wonderful plaid designer series paper. The shape of the sentiment is from the Story Label Punch. I also used the Delightful Tag Topper Punch for the top of the tag, but then I covered it up with the leaves.
The names were printed off the computer and then layered on Pretty Peacock card stock. The finishing touch was the piece of Burlap Ribbon with a Linen Thread tiny bow.
The tag itself is 2 X 5, and the DSP is 1 7/8 X 4 7/8. The name layer depended on the size of the name. 🙂 I see these as being re-made for a Thanksgiving party as place tags or for food names. The thought is to just turn the placement of the decorations. Make them 4 X 5 folded in half to 2 X 5 and sitting on the table with the decorations in top left corner or across the top. I will post a picture of that once I get them made. This is in my brain right now!
Before I go, have you seen the extra post I did yesterday about the upcoming Flash Sale? Here are the flyers with the stamp sets that will be included in the sale. 15% off is a pretty good deal in my book!
