Using Tags in a Card Template

I’m always ready for a new card template to have in my back pocket when I sit down to create some cards. Having a card “recipe” to use allows you to jump start your creativity and bypass the waiting for inspiration phase of papercrafting. Today’s card template has a signature feature – a tag! Take a look at my video tutorial to see four different ways to use tags on this easy card template. Then download the pdf for written direction you can store in your files. Then get busy making some cards!

Using Tags on a Card Front 4 Ways
Facebook Live replay of Papercrafting Playdate 63

 Supplies Needed

• 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” cardstock base, scored at 4-1/4” 

• 2” x 4-3/4” patterned paper #1

• 1” x 4″ patterned paper #2

• 4” x 2” cardstock for tag (or use tag die)

• 1-1/2” – 2” cardstock shape (punched or die cut)

Of course you can step-up and vary this template in many ways to make it your own and use the supplies you have on hand.

Ways to Vary the Template

  • 2-1/8″ x  4- 7/8” coordinating cardstock to layer under patterned paper #1
  • Use an embossing folder on the patterned paper .
  • Use ribbon to layer on top of the 4” strip
  • Cover the entire front of card base in patterned paper #3 cut 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
  • Make your own tag out of a 2″ x 4″ piece of cardstock by clipping the corners
  • Make a shaker tag using the Celebrate With Tags dies.
  • Instead of a tag create a mini pocket using the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies

I challenge you to create your own version of Card Template #11 and come post your creations in the Robin’s Really Super Stampers Facebook group. I would love to see what you come up with! Happy creating – Robin.

    Hi Robin. I can’t find the Celebrate With Tags Bundle anywhere. Is the corresponding die cuts available for the stamp set? I can find the stamp set, but not the die cut set.
    thanks for your help, Janice

    1. Hi Janice! For some reason the dies retired at the end of the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog but the stamp set did not. You would have to search on eBay or a Facebook resale/retired product site to find it on sale.
