Winter Woodlands Gift Card Tag/Gift Wrap

Hi my friends, I'm back to share the Gift Card Tag and Gift Wrap projects I made for the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous YouTube Live Christmas release with the beautiful Winter Woodlands and Ticking and Grain stamp sets and if you missed the Live, you can watch the replay to check out all the fabulous stamps and layering stencils and amazing projects from the Makers on Tim's YouTube Channel HERE or Blog HERE.
created the Gift Card Tag from one of the backgrounds I made for the 3 projects I made for the Live using Winter Woodlands and Ticking and Grain background stamps and you can see the process on the blog post for the card and envelope HERE
I stamped the large collage stamp and smaller banners on to a sheet of clear shrink plastic, inked with Rustic Wilderness, Ground Espresso and Barn Door Distress Archival inks.
I trimmed the large collage piece, punched holes (remember to make the hole bigger than what you think you need, as it will shrink too) and shrank with my heat tool.
I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tag Thinlits to die-cut the panel, stamped the images from Winter Woodlands, inked with Barn Door Distress Archival on to scraps of the coloured card, fixed in place using Distress Collage Medium and added one of the shrink plastic pieces.
I spritzed Antique Linen and Rustic Wilderness Distress Spray Stain on to my Media Surface Mat, spritzed with water and used to colour Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon. Once dry, I added to the tag, tied in a double bow and added Idea-ology Bells attached with red thread.
I decorated the back of the tag to match the front and added a pocket to hold a gift card.

To customise the wrapping paper, I stamped the tree from Winter Woodlands, inked with Versamark ink, randomly on to a piece of  "the perfect colour" M&S wrapping paper left over from last Christmas, sprinkled with Rustic Wilderness and Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Glazes and heat set. I repeated on a smaller piece of paper to use for the gift tag for the parcel.
I inked the large collage image from the stamp set with Versamark ink, held the stamp in my hands and stamped on the paper, sprinkled with Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder and heat set.
I wrapped the gift and die-cut two tags using the Tim Holtz/Stacked Tags Thinlits from Distress Kraft HeavyStock. I attached the stamped and embossed paper to one of the tags, added the gold embossing and splatters to match the package, Idea-ology Metallic Stickers, fixed the tags together and added to the package. I die-cut hearts from left over stamped card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Heartfelt Big Z die, added one to the tags and the other to the tag on the back of the package for my personal message.

I added coloured Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon, a black thread bow and a hanging decoration using lots of Idea-ology bits and pieces from my stash and two of the shrink plastic pieces.
