I got the Two Tags Big Shot die a while ago, and haven't really played with it much - too many other toys, I guess!
When planning for my stamp club meeting this month, I decided to let them have the opportunity to make some tags to take home.
I chose a Bermuda Bay/Real Red color scheme. I realize Bermuda Bay is a little more blue than most of our greens, but it does look good with Real Red - and that's certainly a Christmas color!
I also embossed quarter sheets of Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Whisper White with the Petals A Plenty embossing folder, so that I could layer the tall tag.
The die cuts a perforation around the outside of the tall tag (like the Top Note die), which makes it really easy to trim the top layer on those perforations, and allow you to do layered tags with more than one color.
The other tag on the die cuts a tag that folds up, and catches under a slight cut made by the die. Very easy tag to make - doesn't require a lot of decoration (for one thing, there's not much room!) and would be a quick project when you need a tag.
And here are a couple of tags made using the Merry embosslit from the Holiday mini-catalog. These came out pretty cute, too! And they were very fast to make.
So - do you NEED these two Big Shot items now? Just call or email, and I'd be pleased to order them for you. Or, alternatively, go to my Stampin' Up! website and place an on-line order. Be sure to choose me as your demonstrator - you'll get a better price than if you'd don't select a demonstrator!
My suggestion? Once you get these tools, sit down and make a bunch, then you'll have them for that last minute gift.
