Elizabeth’s Magical Tag

October 7, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, the Penny Black designers shared beautiful holiday tag designs. If you missed it, check out the posts here: Day 1Day 2Day 3Day 4Day 5. This week the designers take things even further as they continue with the tag-making theme. Not only will they be sharing a new tag design, but they will also be sharing how to incorporate this tag into a card design. Join us as “Tag Time” is “continued.”


Today Elizabeth’s tag design not only becomes part of her card, but is also a moveable element that can be seen from the inside too.

Here’s her tag…


The combination of soft teal and red are a beautiful winter color duo. Designer papers from 80-013 Holiday Trimmings add whimsical fun to the 51-007 Tagged die cuts.


And now her card…


Talk about winter magic…Can you guess how she suspended her tag inside the window? If you guessed fishing line you were right.

By creating an identical tag, the same design floats to the inside of the card.


Elizabeth has a secret designer tip to share today too! Did you know that negative die cut opening from 51-116 Framed Flowers creates the perfect window to showcase the small tag from 51-007 Tagged?


That’s right… no need to measure and cut with a craft knife!!


Here you can see the soft, textural design on the window frame created by heat embossing 30-311 Soft Grace in white powder.

    Wonderful card! Really like the idea of heat embossing with the same color powder and paper.
