Flowers & Swirls Tag

Hi Everyone,

I decided for my post today would be a large tag instead of a card.  This really pretty tag measures 6" x 6" and for me, it just screams Spring!  I love the bright colors with the flowers and swirls. This tag is something that won't end up in the trash can after your friend or family member sees it. They are going to want to place it in a frame and hang it on their wall!  What better way can you say that "I'm thinking of you!"

Flowers & Swirls Card

3D Foam Tape
Mini Brads
Hole Punches- 1/16" and 1/4"
Blender Pen
Cardstock- Ivory, Blue, Green and Orange


Pull together all of your supplies.  Cut cardstock as follows
Ivory- 5 1/2" x 5 1/2", Blue- 5 3/4" x 5/34", Green- 6" x 6".

On the ivory base tag and on a scrap piece of ivory, stamp
fence on each piece with mudslide inkpad, using the
Get-it-Straight Laser Square to align the stamp.
(See Below)

The Get-it-Straight Laser Square can now replace all
of those stamp positioners that you have collected over
the years.  It will position your stamps perfectly each
and every time you use it!

Color your fence images with chalk pencils and blend
your colors with a blender pen.  You only need to color
the edges of the fence image on your base tag.  The other
fence image will be placed on top of the base tag.
(See Below)

The fence image on the left is the base tag.  Cut
out the other fence image.

Using the Grand Calibur die cut machine and the floral
template, cut out multiple flowers.

The floral template and the rubber stamps are made
to use together.  Stamp floral images onto die cuts with
red devil and tangerine inkpads.

Curl flowers around a paintbrush.  Layer flowers
together and punch holes in flowers.  Insert brads.

Cut out swirls and leaves with die cut machine using
Jewel Flowers & Flourishes template.

Ink leaf edges with golf course inkpad.

Use a distresser to distress the edges of all three
pieces of the cardstock.  Place foam tape on fence
image and place on top of base tag image.

Use the Get-it-Straight Laser Square to layer all
three pieces of cardstock as shown above.  Adhere
layers together with Zip Dry.

To finish the tag, cut out two smaller tags with blue and
green cardstock, adhere together.  Stamp small tag with
"Thinking of You".  Adhere the flowers, leaves and
swirls onto tag with Zip Dry glue.  Punch hole in top
of tag and add ribbon.  Use completed tag for placement
if needed.
