I was inspired to make an umbrella gift tag for a cousin's wedding shower.
- black card stock (advertisement)
- carbon paper
Next, I cut the image out.
On the back of the umbrella, I added small pieces of double sided foam tape.
*Tip: Using double sided foam tape raises an image above the surface of the background giving the image more dimension.
Then I used the tape to attach the umbrella to the pink paper.
I used a silver pen to create small dots around the edges of the umbrella...
...and personalized the umbrella with the name of the bride-to-be using the black marker.
Next I used double sided tape to attach the pink background onto the black paper, leaving some black paper visible around the edges.
After cutting out a thin edge of black around the pink, I repeated the process by using double sided tape to attach the black background to the silver paper and I cut a thin edge of silver around the black.
Last, I used double sided tape to secure the entire shape to the front of the large sheet of white card stock and cut the paper into the shape of a card. This completed the tag.
This was my second time using carbon paper to create a tag, and I was pleased again with the result. I am in the process of keeping a small file of images I've used for cards so I can reuse them in the future to make new cards.
