The product I am showcasing today contained a wonderful surprise.  It is the Celebration Tags Dies and a gift card will actually fit inside of it.  How exciting is this?


Stampin' Up!, Celebrate With Tags, Celebrations Tag Dies, Awash In Beauty, Jackie Beers



Since the tag / envelope on the front of the card is the star of this show, I am beginning with the tag.  There are two foldable tags included in the Celebrations Tag Dies, along with several other pieces.  This card includes the larger of the envelope / tags plus the balloon.  It also includes the layer the sentiment is stamped on.  With this versatility I believe this is a must have die set.

The best part of this card, besides being cute, was the discovery that a gift card will fit in the tag. After gluing the tag / envelope together, I had the idea to try a gift card.  Having not seen anyone demonstrate that one would fit, I had my doubts.  But surprisingly, and with great excitement, I discovered it fits perfectly!

Here is a view of the card being pulled out of the tag.



Stamp set / Bundle

Since I have been going on about the die set, I should tell you that it Bundles with the Celebration With Tags stamp set.  The stamp set includes the Happy Birthday as well as some other great sentiments.  Even though the dies are my favorite part, the stamps are very good and fit the layers.  That is always a good thing.


The paper choices were dictated by my needing a female birthday card.  And with a different sentiment, these colors and papers would be great for a baby shower.  Backing up to the DSP, you know that it was my first choice, as that is how I generally begin.  So the pink and blue from the Awash In Beauty Designer Series Paper is what prompted the Balmy Blue and Blushing Bride cardstocks.  The balloon is die cut from the same piece of DSP.  It is showing the reverse side.  And has a Heart Pearl as an embellishment.

Gift Card Pull

Having the tag containing the gift card on the front of the card required an easy means of retrieving the gift card..  This “Pull” idea came from The Paper Pixie on a gift bag she did recently.  Since the tag already has the holes on both the front and the back layers, all I had to do was thread the ribbon through them.  The ribbon is 12″ of the Old Olive Ribbon that is part of the Sahara Sand and Old Olive Ribbon Combo in the Annual catalog.

Feed the ribbon through one side and all the way through the other side.  Pull through to the back with about 3″ of ribbon.  While holding on to that piece, place the gift card in the opening and push down.  This will take the length of the ribbon from the front down into the tag with the gift card.  When the gift card is fully inside the tag, you should have about the same amount of ribbon left on the front and the back.  You can tie with Bakers Twine, as I did, leave as is, or use your own idea.  Then simply trim the ribbon ends to the same length.
