You will see a plethora of ways to combine stencils, stamps and Sizzix dies on this hop for SURE! I’m sharing a fun frosted glass technique that you can use to create Recipe Card Gift Tags for a Bridal Shower or other heartfelt gifts. Come along, creative inspiration awaits, so let’s get hopping!
I created this Recipe Card Gift Tag for a friends Bridal Shower using Eileen Hull’s Candy Jar Sizzix Die. The Bride-to-be went “Green” with a No Wrap shower gift request but I couldn’t resist prettying up the package just a little bit
Just a bit of lace, ink, StencilGirl stencils, and Sizzix Die Cuts was all it took to create a cute recipe card that doubles as a Bridal Shower Gift Tag!
I’m all for the “No Wrap” Shower. I love a pretty package as much as the next girl but man can those things run loooong with all that unwrapping am I right? Now you can have your “wedding cake” and eat it too by making a no wrap gift just as pretty with a cute gift tag!
