My tag measures 4 X 6 1/2. Make the tag using watercolor paper for strength. Cover with a piece of the Blushing Rose Paper Collection. Next I stamped and embossed the Blushing Rose Background Cling Stamp and then set the tag aside while I worked on the other elements. I dyed a piece of the seam binding using Dusty Concord Distress Ink and set it aside to dry. Next I used the circle dies to cut out a frame using purple and white cardstock. I used a circle piece of paper from the Classic Rose paper collection to go behind my circle for contrast. Cut out the Decorative Oval and then use one of the circle dies to make it fit my frame. Now glue all layers of the frame together and let dry. Once dry I added the half pearls and glued them down. I stamped and cut out the roses and leaves and colored it with Memento Ink on the leaves and Distress Ink for the rosebuds. The Dove Blender Pen works wonderfully for this. I used dimensional tape behind the roses and mounted it to the circle piece. I also used dimensional tape to apply the circle piece to my tag. Next tie the bow and adhere to the bottom of the tag.
I love making tags as they can be given as a stand alone gift or slipped down into a gift bag with a gift for a friend. It just gives a little bit of extra love from you to them!
