This Celebrate Today gift packaging ensemble was for a very good friend of mine. Her birthday was recently and we celebrated by going out for supper together. It was really fun to make Celebrate Today coordinating items for her gift: the card, wine bottle tag and gift bag tag. I plan on making more of these to sell at up coming craft fairs. It makes for a terrific presentation.
Celebrate Today stamp set is available as a BUNDLE and you know what that means, extra 15% savings for you. Celebrate Today is only available as a photopolymer set, it is totally see through, which makes lining up the images super easy.
To stamp the two tone balloons, you ink the entire stamp with the base colour, then use a sponge dauber along one edge of the stamp (before) stamping to add the second colour of ink to the stamp. Then you stamp the image onto whisper white card stock while both colours of ink are still wet. Be sure to add the shadow/second colour on the same side of both balloons, otherwise, your card will look off balance. You will then heat emboss with gold embossing powder on the top of your balloons. Add a little sweetness with a little linen thread bow attached with a mini glue dot and add a little bling with the gold sequin trim attached with the mini handheld stapler.
The gift tag and the wine bottle tag used the same technique as the card with the use of the Banners framelits for the trendy shape.
I hope you like my Celebrate Today Gift Packaging Ensemble! I do! 🙂 I will be adding these to all my future gifts.
Remember to inspire, create and share. Let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear from you.
Happy Stamping to you all!
