Trail Mix Tag Card – for Her, or for Him

Some paper collections are gender neutral – or rather, as I’d like to call it, gender encompassing ūüôā : fitting for both men and women, boys and girls. Certain themes will fit almost any occasion and any person, and nature¬†would be one of those categories.

Bo Bunny’s¬†Trail Mix¬†is a fun design paper collection centered around the great outdoors. It has lots of wood, birds, flowers, trees and the coordinating Notepack¬†die-cuts even offer wild animals! Trail Mix fits both male and female recipients of almost all ages and I have used it as such.¬†The first project for which I used¬†this paper was a little mini album for a ten-year-old boy. This tag card was created¬†for a middle-aged (but young at heart ūüôā ) woman.

Tag Card – show & tell with pictures

The front of the card shows¬†a pocket with a punched border. It’s been matted, with a label from Bo Bunny’s Trail Mix¬†Notepack die-cuts on top of that. The top corners of the card have been rounded with the¬†Deco/Stub Corner Chomper¬†by We R Memory Keepers.

The pocket holds a tag Рwhich itself is a die-cut from the Trail Mix Notepack. The card itself has been matted with two pieces of decorative paper, for some added interest and color.

I printed the name of the recipient onto the tag. I added some details, by applying droplets of diamond glitter glue to the flowers on the tag. On the back of the tag I wrote my personal message to her.

The label on the pocket is lifted with some dimensional tape. I stamped the label “Speciaal voor jou” – which is Dutch for “Especially for you.”

Because my personal note was written on the back of the tag in the front pocket, I could mat the back of the card with some nice design paper from the collection.

I emphasized a ldetail in the pattern by tracing it with some Glossy Accents: a little bird, sitting on a tree branch.


What gender encompassing paper collections can you recommend?
