A few non-traditional looks keep popping up for this holiday season. One that I really like is pink and gold! It has such a classy, yet soft and wintry feel. I had such a fun time putting this one together! Let’s dive into some details!

To create some wintry motion, I used the Feathered Leaves Stencil with Embossing Paste on white cardstock. When it was dry, I trimmed the cardstock to the desired length and width. Then, I used a Soda Top Die to create a beautiful multi-angled top to the tag. Lastly, I used some Frosty Pink Mixed Media Ink to blend in a soft pink area to the tag.

Then, it was on to the gold details. I pulled out some Gold Foil Cardstock and diecut a few snowflakes from the Layered Snowflake die set, and the “Happy” from the new Happy Holidays Script die set. Instead of using the “holidays” diecut, I grabbed the stamp from Mega Greetings 2 and heat embossed that in gold on vellum.

With all of the pieces ready to go, I arranged them on the tag and added in a slew of White Satin Sequins to add to the swirling snow feel. To finish it off, I added some white baker’s twine and a handmade tassel!
