Pretty Tag



Elizabeth Craft Designs has the most beautiful tag dies.  Today I designed a tag using the Tags & More 7 - Vine tag die set.  

 Here is a picture of the Tags and More 7 - Vine die set.  I die cut the main tag using the piece at the top of the picture of dies using a light green card stock.  Second, I die cut the pretty leaf border (2nd piece down in picture) using white card stock.  Both the green and white card stock are the same size.  You can create a tag as long as you want because you place the dies at the top of the card stock then trim along the sides to achieve the length you want.  Isn't that great!  The white die cut (with the leaves) was attached over the green tag with dimensional tape.  That gives some depth between the two pieces and adds dimension.

To decorate the front of the tag I used the Oval Flourish Frame Edges dies to create a frame.  With this frame you die cut two each of the die pieces.  It creates a lacy frame.  I wanted a light green background on the frame and it was super easy to do because the frame is die cut in four pieces to form the oval center.  I laid the white die cut frame pieces on green card stock and traced around each one, lightly with a pencil - doing this for all four pieces.  Cut inside the pencil mark so it is slightly smaller than the frame pieces.  The white frame was then glued to the green pieces.  I love this type of frame because I didn't have to find another oval die the same size to create an opening in the center of the frame.


Next I wanted an embossed background for the pretty rose, under the frame.  I used the Elizabeth Craft Spring Leaves embossing folder.  It was a perfect fit behind the frame.  To give it dimension, I attached the frame, over the embossed piece, with dimensional tape to the tag.

Next I created a beautiful rose using Susan's Garden - Rose 1 dies.  The rose was attached with a pop dot and the leaves attached under it with glue.  The butterfly was die cut using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Small Butterfly dies.  All three pieces of the butterfly were die cut using light yellow card stock.  I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink to sponge around the edges of the solid butterfly and Mustard Seed and Tea Dye Ink on the body.  The butterfly was glued together and attached to the tag with dimensional tape.  

Along the top edge of the die cut frame, I used the scallop die from the same Tag Set to create a border.  In the center of the scallop openings, I die cut the small circle from the same set and glued them on. These little circles created a background for the white pearls glued on top.  To finish the tag, I added a row of string pearls above the frame and a matching ribbon to the top of the tag.  I forgot to mention I used the reinforcement circle die from this tag set over the hole at the top of the tag.

A beautiful tag on a gift box or bag is usually cherished.  I am sure who ever I give this tag to will love it.
