Hello My Creative Time friends. We are already at sneak peek #3. Can you believe it? Today we are going to showcase the new set called XL Label Borders. This set is AWESOME! You know that beautiful XL Label Die, well this set gives you four more beautiful border options to use with it. The Whimsical Calendar Days set gave you one border for this die and this set gives you four more options. I've made either a small shape card or a gift tag using each of these new borders. There are also a hand full of other sentiment stamps that work really well for little gift tags or cards.
This one was a single line outline border. The sentiment is from the You're My Best Buddy stamp set. And the awesome Santa coat is from the All Around Accessories set.
For this gift tag, I used the single line border stamp in addition to a beautiful snow flake border stamp. I heat embossed the snowflakes with a pretty embossing tinsel. The snowman is also from the All Around Accessories set.
Here is the back of one of the tags so you can see the To: and From: stamps that also come with the XL Label Border stamp set.
This one is a mini shape card made with the XL Label Die. I've done a tutorial on this type of card before and will leave a link to it for you. I used the darling confetti border. This border is so cute. I accented some of the confetti pieces with a glitter gel pen. The For You! sentiment is from this XL Label Border stamp set and the darling little dinosaur is from the All Around Accessories stamp set.
And here is the last one...
Yes, that is right a perfectly stitched border. I seriously LOVE these fun border for the XL Label Die. These give you so many options for this die. And as far as the die goes, I can't say enough good about it. I've found that this die works beautifully for: gift tags, mini-cards, accents to a regular card, scrapbooking (journaling tag or embellishment) and I've even used it to make a banner! I LOVE this die and so I really love the extra options on dressing it up.
Here is a picture of this same mini-card showing what it looks like opened up (on the left) and what it looks like closed up (on the right). It is the perfect size for a little note accompanying a present.
If you don't know how to make a shape card out of a die, you can click HERE and it will direct you to a post I have with a short video that demonstrates making shape cards out of dies.
Sorry this post was so long but I just had to try out all of the border options and thought that you might want to see all of them as well.
