Debbie Stadard here with an easy step-by-step on how to create a festive gift bag and tag for the that next big day of yours! Don’t be afraid to emboss that Glitter Silk. It looks amazing!
1. First off pick a little box – as you can see I have had this one awhile but that’s ok – I’m covering it. Using the wrong side of your paper mark the bottom of the box and the top of the box and cut out. The great thing about Glitter Silk is that the back is white so it’s easy to make lines. Then cut a smaller piece to fit in the bottom of the box.
2. Now glue all the pieces to the box.
3. Measure around the box and the height of the bottom of the box and cut. Glue to sides holding to get a tight fit. If you have to cut a second strip it’s easier to cut one side and then piece it that way.
4. Do the same thing for the top of the box.
5. Now because I didn’t want my seam to show on to I used these pearls from Paper Studios. They worked well on here because they are all attached in one long line so you can do an entire side at one time.
6. Then I used a Spellbinder’s die to cut my flower and leaves and embossed the them. I used my Xyron 250 to run the leaves through and attach to the top of the box and then some Glue dots to add the flower after I added a brad.
7. Now to make my bag I used the rest of the turquoise sheet. I embossed it (you don’t sand Glitter Silk due to the glitter finish) and attached it and another embossed purple strip. Then I made a banner sentiment using the green and layering it with some turquoise and added a David Tutera Sentiment.
8. Tie a festive bow to the top and you have a great gift set!
Start with a Red Step One base. Emboss a Step Two Zig Zag Edge sheet with an embossing folder of your choice. Then cut a piece from the Step Two Silver Metal embossed collection. Mat it with a black sheet from the bulk cardstock collection. Attach all to your card base. Then place your sticker onto another piece from the black sheet (one sheet should be able to mat both of these). Attach it to to your card. Then pick two different size flowers from the Step three flowers collection. Attach and add a large Rhinestone.
Hey there !! Today I’ve got a super cute little card to share ….. I often love the sweet size of an A1 card as it’s just a touch smaller than the A2 but still gives you a great space to create on the front of your card.
Because the David Tutera collection is created using Core’dinations cardstock, I ran my card base through my eBosser with a large embossing folder so I could sand off the top layer and show the dimension of the dot pattern…..
I took (3) white cardstock tags and adhered them at different heights at the bottom of the card and then gently trimmed off the excess. I wanted them to stand out a little more so I added some faux stitching along the edges using my black journal pen.
The Step 3 embellishment pkgs have some super cute pieces in them so it was easy to add a couple of cute little hearts to these tags and a chip sentiment too !!
It is no surprise here that we love our Authentique papers! Today Jennifer Edwardson has whipped up some amazing cards for your inspiration. See what you can do with some David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system pieces and some gorgeous patterned paper? You can whip up TONS of cards is a short amount of time because all of the cardbases are premade, scored and folded for you. So make sure you check out Step 1 HERE.
I love giving sets of gift cards for birthdays, thank you and hostess gifts so when I saw the cellection of Authentique product I got to work with I knew it would be perfect for this !!
The colors in ‘Be(you)tiful’ are gorgeous and they work so well with the Core’dinations cardstock. I started all my cards using David Tutera Celebrate card bases. I chose the pearl cardstock cards – they have become my new fave – love the shimmer !! The colors of these cards worked so well with the colors in the patterned paper ……
I chose a few complimentary pieces of cardstock and got to work. On some cards I used embossing folders on the card base and others I embossed the cardstock and sanded and layered them mixed with the Authentique papers and die cuts …… I even had twine and sentiments in my studio to match !!
I was thrilled with being able to get a gorgeous set of (8) A2 sized cards using (1) 12 x 12 die cut sheet and a few pieces of patterned paper from a 6 x 6″ pad. Add in the card bases and a few pieces of Core’dinations cardstock and ta-da!
This is a lovely gold pearl card base from the Pearls assorted pack.
And don’t be afraid to emboss those card bases!

And Today we have a project for from Designer Jennifer Edwardson:
I have been a HUGE Tombow adhesive fan for a very long time, so naturally I was excited to show off my love of this glue for the Core’dinations / Tombow Blog Hop !!
One of my fave Tombow adhesives is the Glue Pen. It truly is the best for adhereing tiny little pieces without having any excess glue sneak out the sides :))
I started this card using a piece of Core’dinations cardstock from the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (No. 28 – LOVE the kraft core) …… I cut a 12 x 12″ sheet down to 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 and then folded it in half to open like a tent. I then put the front of the card base into the Darice Woodgrain embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. I lightly sanded off the top layer and got a super effect for the front of the card
Using several different pieces of cardstock from the 6 x 6″ pkgs, I cut the branch, owls and hearts using my Silhouette. Because this cutting tool is so precise, you can get teeny tiny little pieces of cardstock. This is why I love the Tombow Glue Pen. It was so easy for me to ‘draw’ my glue onto the back of all these little bits and they adhered perfectly where I wanted them …..
To finish it off I adhered a sentiment sticker from the David Tutera Celebrate Card Making system using 3D foam ….. Too cute !!
And check out these tiny pieces…you DEFINITELY need a tool like the Tombow Glue pen to get in those details and not make a mess.
