A Blue Fern Studios Tag and Cash Gift Holder

Hi crafty friends! It's three more days to our family holiday and I'm so excited about it! But before I go, I have two projects to share with you featuring Blue Fern Studios chipboards.

The first is a tag which I made for a friend. 

I recycled some product packaging and leftover pieces of scrap paper by distressing and layering them. 

I then brushed gesso on a piece of BFS' graduated circles chipboard (the smallest piece) and Gabrielle butterfly. I misted the circle piece with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst, while I painted the colors on for the butterfly chipboard. For the circle, I went on to heat emboss with purple-tinted clear EP, and finished off the butterfly with some Stickles. 

The second item is a cash gift holder, or what we Chinese call 红包 (red packet). It is usually a red rectangular envelope where cash is placed as a gift for weddings, birthday and for children during Chinese New Year visitations. I was attending a colleague's wedding and instead of using the generic red packets lying around, I decided to make my own.

I did a little bit of mixed media fun for the background with LSG sprays and EPs.

For this item, I used the Page Chain and snipped into two pieces. Both were brushed with gesso and misted with some LSG Starburst. This was followed by some random stamping with Versamark and sprinkling clear embossing powder over. The result is a glazed textural effect on the chipboard.

 That's all I have for you today. Don't forget that I also have a giveaway happening here! One lucky random winner still stand to receive a US30 gift certificate from C'est Magnifique Kits.

Until then, happy crafting!
