Tag It Card!

9 Mar


Today, I am sharing a card with a tag. Whenever I use colour mists, paints etc, and there are left-overs… I will get some tags and use up the colours so as not to waste them. The tags can then be used in future projects.. Just need to add embellishments to dress it up.

For this project… I started with a clean manila tag and glided the Picked Raspberry distress ink onto the craft sheet and then sprayed some water to the ink.

I then pressed the tag down onto the watery ink. Apply more ink or spray more water to the craft sheet and press the tag again until you get the look you desire. Dry the tag with a heat gun.

Using a small foam pad, I applied the Salty Ocean distress ink around the edges of the tag.

Next, I applied Mowed Lawn Distress ink over the mini punchinella to both top left and bottom right of tag.

I stamped the sentiment onto the middle of the tag with Brilliance Graphite Black and coated it with Ranger clear embossing powder. Heat set the wordings.

Using a black ink pen, I outlined the border and blended black and shiny silver chalk ink to it.

Next step is to adhere the tag using raised foam tape to the card.

The final step was to add the ribbon and all the desired embellishments to the tag and card.

Ta-Da.. A cheery card with vibrant colours to cheer someone up. 🙂
