Tag Card

I have done a tag card  using Graphic 45  Typography paper.
I chose the paper I wanted to use and cut a tag shape from it.

I then using stencils and stamps did a background over tag.

Cut out one of the toppers from pack tripled embossed it and mounted it on blk card I also cut a stripe of constrasting   paper in fact the paper I used was from the same sheet I used for my tag but the other side tripled embossed that then mount on blk card and put some lace along bottom edge.

Add the topper and strip to tag. Made a faux porcelain flower for the flower I used the left over card to die cuts the flowers put them together and dip in melting pot.then attach to tag and add a hat pin.Then mount tag on a kraft DL card which I had stamped a text stamp down one side add the words laughter and fun to top of tag and then you have the finished card.

The challenge this time at Ali-Craft is Valentines. I was given this heart shape by Tando at Christmas so thought I would use it  I started by painting it all red then I stamped over it with Tim Holtz stamps allow to dry.Randomly I put frantage embossing enamel over and heated you have to do it slowly I always start with the heat gun quite away from the powder and  as it starts to melt move in  in slowly as the powder does tend to blow around.I then found some of Tim's paper and some acetate  traced round the hearts and cut out stamps words and swirls on paper then attach to the base and put acetate over then place the front of the hearts on.Flowers are from Craft Shop which I put in the melting pot.I then attached flowers using a glue gun adding some metal leaves under them then a key across the top right hand corner and a black bow in left hand one.Sorry there are no step by step but it actually started off in a different way to how it as ended.
