Carta Bella - Yesterday Christmas Tags


Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans!  I'm up on the Carta Bella Blog today with a nostalgic Christmas tag set using the beautiful new Yesterday Collection along with a few snips of the Christmas Time Collection!  

The Carta Bella Paper Yesterday Collection is loaded with feminine florals with an antique feel that brings back memories from the past!

I want to share a couple of tips with you today, too!

The Carta Bella  Designer Dies come out of the package with wire keeping the dies together.  I used the die this way and look what lovelies came about!  These intricate frames are PERFECT for layering!

DIE-CUTTING


Did you know that even though the Chipboard and Collection Stickers have adhesive backs, you can still prop them up with foam adhesive and not have the edges stick to your project?  It's simple!  Just apply a bit of powder to the adhesive backs and they will not stick to edges of your project and remain popped up perfectly!

USING FOAM ADHESIVE

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TAG in Red



MERRY CHRISTMAS TAG in Green


Here is the supply list that I used to create this Yesterday Christmas Tag Set!

Paper Trimmer
Embossing Powder Bag
Foam Adhesive
Liquid Glue

Directions:

1.  Cut apart desired 3" x 4" journal cards from the Yesterday Collection.

2.  Cut Designer Dies from a variety of coordinating papers.

3.  Layer and adhere the frames as desired to the journal cards with liquid glue.

4.  After powdering the backs, adhere Yesterday Chipboard Stickers over your frame layers with foam adhesive.

5.  Attach 6" ribbon strips folded in half with Yesterday Decorative Brads.

6.  Lastly, trim up strips of Christmas Time Collection papers that include Christmas sentiments and adhere across the tag fronts.


Having gift tags handy this time of year is a MUST!  This beautiful set of tags would also make a wonderful gift for a friend, too!  Hope you are inspired to create some Christmas tags today using a mix of your favorite Carta Bella collections!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
