Carte Postal

Happy Monday! It is challenge day at The Kraft Journal where we're going for lavish layers! This is a fun one - I hope you can play along!

I had a lovely weekend shower on Saturday for my friend Felicia! I used layers of paper tape over a wonderful postcard shipping tag to create this jumbo tag for her shower gift! Guess the wedding date? Yep, November 12th! :) Additional layers include film strip ribbon, a love ticket, and a November calendar bingo card. The card was finished off with reinforcer stickers, some black seam binding ribbon, gorgeous stick pins, and a vintage button for some extra sparkle.

Though there are a lot of layers on this tag, it isn't overwhelming and was a big hit at the party. I can't wait to see what you create for this fun challenge! Enter and you will have a chance at a Kraft Outlet gift certificate!

Supplies: Postcard (The Kraft Journal), Paper Tape (7 Gypsies), Film Strip Ribbon/Adage Tickets/Reinforcer Stickers (Tim Holtz), Stick Pins/Bingo Card (Jenni Bowlin), vintage button/seam binding (my stash), Number Dies/Ink (Papertrey Ink), Cuttlebug, Metal Sheet (Spellbinders)


  1. This is truly beautiful, Jen! Such a gorgeous gift tag. Love how you personalized it with the date and love how you wrapped it with the trims. Makes it look like a little present in and of itself. :)

  2. Super cool tag, all the different elements you used and adding the wedding date was such a wonderful personal touch!!!!

  3. Great job, Jen! I've never seen a more beautifully lavish gift tag; I'm sure your friend will treasure it as a memento of the shower!

  4. This is so pretty, Jen! I love all the beautiful bits and baubles that you've added to it...definitely layer-licious!! Tee hee!

  5. Such a great color combination and a clever idea to use the post card as a giant tag. That tag will be a treasure to your friend always. :-)
