Stamp Set Showcase Week 22 (1) 25 Days Advent Countdown

Welcome to the start of Week 22 of our Stamp Set Challenges, but we continue using the 25 Days photo-Polymer Stamp Set as it will help keep us all on track with how swiftly Christmas is coming!
But as with last week, there will be a montage of various stamp sets to continue on the Advent Countdown

Today is the turn of 

TAPE IT stamp set with shades of Silver and Gold
I have cased it from someone ... but I wasn't good efficient enough to take note of the person that made the card I caught a brief view of and had a 'ping' moment of I know what would work with that moment. So if it was you, my apologies, and do let me know so I can give you credit!
I have changed up the original, by including the Hanging The Holly sentiment stamp that I used to create a background. to thr star of the show that is Tape It!

I also made a tag and co-ordinated one of the Simply Stars (from the Kit of the same name), plus of course, an A7 side fold tag to take the Number '8' from 25 Days stamp set.

card/tag blanks were made from Kraft Card.

To make the regular tag, simply trim a piece of Kraft Card to 5 cms x 10 cms
Create the tag top using the Angled Tag Topper Punch. 
Trim a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 4.5 cms x 9.5 cms
Use the Angled Tag Topper Punch to create the tag top.

Next, make your Card Blank by trimming a piece of Kraft Cardstock to 29.6 cms x 10.5 cms
Score the long side at 14.8 cms.
Use the Corner Punch to round the corners of all 4 corners of the card blank.
Trim a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 20 cms x 14,3 cms
round the corners of the bottom two corners of the cardstock (the short edge)

And lastly, make your A7 Tag from Craft Card using a side fold. and make a very Vanilla layer to go on top in exactly the same way as the above. Round all corners of the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Now I am not mad ... I have got you to make all the blanks in one go so you can make the card, tag and card toppers like an assembly line as the stamping is identical on all items, except the snowflake on the A7 Tag is replaced with the number 8.

Begin by making the background by stamping any verse stamp repeatedly to create a book page or script look using Crumb Cake ink. I used a now retired stamp for the job, so use what you have in your craft supplies. Repeat this on all 3 items.
Next, ink up the Chevron stamp from TAPE IT stamp set with Metallic Gold Encore ink. and stamp the very vanilla cardstock on the vertical but off centre
Then ink up one of the smaller faux Washi Tape stamps (I used the polka dot stamp) with Metallic Gold Encore ink and stamp on the horizontal this time, you will may need to stamp this twice to get the length balanced.
Next, Stamp 4 small i howflakes from one Festive Flurry stamp set using VERSAMARK. Dust 2 with Silver Embossing Powder and the other two with Gold Embossing Powder
Heat set using your heat tool.
Die cut using the Festive Flurry Framelits.
If you do not have the Festive Flurry stamp set (as it is now retired) you can replace it with the Bright And Beautiful Stamp Set and Die Cut with the Stars Framelits.
Apply Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse of all 4 Showflakes/stars
As you layer up the stars (you want one silver and one gold star on the A6 card and the Tag, and offset the snowflacked/stars so you end up with a 10 pointed star/shnowflake.
Thread some MEtalic Bakers Twine through 4 Very Vintage Designer Seried Buttons and tie a knot in each. Apply Stampin Dimensionals tot he reverse of these too
Attach one of the buttons to the centre of each Star/Snowflake
Attach the toppers to the A5 card blank, A7 tag blank & the angled tag.
Thread some 5/8" Gold Satin ribbon through the tag top, and make a loop to secure the ribbon.

Use the 2/8" handheld punch to make a hole in the A7 tag and thread through some 2/8" Gold Ribbon and knot.

And there you have it ... I hope you enjoy making your version too ... I know I did!
