Bold & Simple Card and Gift Tag Set (Cosmo Cricket)

Hi Everyone

A little gift set to share today using one of my all time favorite manufacturers – Cosmo Cricket!
Please note that the competition previously detailed here has now closed – you can see who won here.

The colors in this gorgeous collection make it so versatile – and this little set was sent to accompany a handmade gift I created so the recipient can add their own message when they give the gift.

This card is a “swing” card. I used this file and my Cameo to create it – but there are heaps of great online templates too – try this fabulous one here from Beate Johns.
This (above) is what you see when you open the card – plenty of room for you to hand write your message along with this fabulous sticker from the Tiny Text, Together stickers.
This tag is so simple and I love the look of the bold, black sentiment. To create this shape – cut a rectangle of paper and use a circle punch to snip off the corners and create a tag shape on the two top corners. Punch a small hole in the top and add some bakers twine – super easy!
I am still very much in the honeymoon phase with my Cameo machine – so I cut this matching envelope too! To turn it into an “office style” envelope I put in a couple of brads so you can wrap twine or cord around it to close. It also means that you can seal and open the envelope without damaging it.
This little chipboard piece made me smile – it’s so cute! I think these projects really show that when you have great basic design in a collection, it’s easy to put together simple pieces that look fab!

Competition
Please note that the giveaway previously detailed on this post has now closed. it was won by Tracey – you can see the details on this post here.
