My fabulous Spellbinders Reveal die templates are …Drum roll please:

 

         S4-234 Ribbon Tag Trio 2

 

The set comes with 3 beautiful Tags.  Each tag is so different and so versatile that you will find yourself reaching for them over and over again on your projects.

I would like to share with you today two cards that I made using the Ribbon Tag Trio 2 die templates and one tutorial if you would like to make one for yourself

 

Seasons Greeting

To make this card you will need the following supplies:

Spellbinders die templates:

s4-208 In-Spades Pendant and S4-234 Ribbon Tag Trio 2

Cardstock: Dark Brown and White

Patterned Paper: 2 Sheets (I used Basic Grey solid and stripe)

Vintage image: Cotton Scraps from Crafty Secrets

Eyelets and a Rub-on sentiment

 

Tutorial

Step 1

 

Make the base of your card by cutting and folding the brown cardstock so that your card is 6x6.  Cut the stripe patterned paper into a square measuring 5 1/8 x 5 1/8”.  Mount the square onto white paper and trim so that if forms a neat border.  Mount the squares on red solid patterned paper to form a second border and adhere all to the front of your card.

 

Using the Spellbinders S4-208 In Spades die template and your Wizard, cut/emboss two Pendants from White Cardstock.

 

Step 2:

 

 

Using the oval tag  from Spellbinders S4-234  Ribbon Tag Trio 2  die templates, cut/emboss a tag, from the brown cardstock.

 

Step 3:

 

 

Position the oval tag  from Spellbinders  S4-234 Ribbon Tag Trio 2 die template, cut side down, over the image.  Secure with a small piece of removable tape.   Flip the die template and image over and emboss using the Wizard and the Spellbinders Embossing Mat.  Carefully trim the image around the embossed edge.  Adhere the image to the cut/embossed brown Oval Tag.

 

Step 4:

 

Cut/emboss/stencil the Rectangular Tag from the s4-234 Ribbon Tag Trio 2 die templates.  Trim a ¾” wide trip of red paper and thread through either side of the tag’s openings.  I personally love that these tags have larger openings to accommodate wider ribbon or paper and make for easier threading.  Adhere the tag and paper strips to your card with large eyelets on either side.  Stack one s4-208 In Spades Pendant die cut on top of another using a foam dot.

 

Step 5:

Trim two pieces of solid paper to form banner points.  Fold slightly for dimension and thread through the side openings of the Oval Ribbon Tag.  Adhere completed oval ribbon tag to the center of the In-Spades Pendant with a foam dot.
