Rockin' Robin Stamped & Coloured Christmas Gift Tag



I love these cute Rockin’ Robin stamps and used them to create a little gift tag.  The tag shape is a bauble design cut on my Cricut Explore (my DS link below) but it’s a simple shape and can easily be drawn with a pencil onto your card if you prefer.  You will have 3 layers to the bauble, 1 blue, 1 red and 1 white hammered card.

I cut the base shape from PMD Sky Blue card and glued the 2nd layer cut from PMD Post Box Red card directly on top.  I applied glue to the top ‘cap of the bauble and sprinkled with glitter, shaking off the excess.  I did the same to the red card part, but only applying glue and glitter to the outside edges as the main part will be covered by the stamped panel.

Using Memento inks, stamp one of the robin characters onto smooth white card, stamp the sentiment, little Santa hat and 2 lots of the holly leaves.  If you have the matching die set, use that to cut the stamped images out.  If you don’t have the die set then cut around each image using scissors or craft knife leaving a small white border.  Die cut, or cut by hand, a branch shape from PMD Mocha Brown card.

Work out where you want to position your images on the white hammered card piece, then stamp the music notes in brown ink at right hand side.  Glue the branch towards bottom of white hammered card shape.  Add Sentiment, Robin and Santa hat and holly leaves using 3D foam pads.

When image panel is complete, add 3D foam to the back and adhere to the layered bauble tag base.  To finish, tie lengths of sheer white and red glittery ribbon through the hole at the top, making a bow with the white ribbon.
