Project Inspiration

Today, I'll be sharing how you can add an extra dimension to inlaid die-cuts using the new Decorative Tags Die Set from our new Year-End Celebration Collection!20211111 123002 1I started by cutting the rose tag from the Decorative Tags Die Set from white cardstock. I then backed this onto another piece of white cardstock and fussy cut around the tag. Then, I created my own gradient cardstock pieces to use for die-cutting the elements of the flower.  For the pink blended cardstock, I used Baby Pink, Fuchsia, and Magenta Inks. And for the green, I used Firefly, Grass Field, and Shadow Creek Inks.

20211111 123006 1Next, I die cut the flower part of the tag from the pink cardstock 3 times. For the first layer, I added the pink die-cut pieces into place on the backed die-cut tag, flat using glue tape. In the second layer, I curled some of the petals and adhered them just at the base so the curl remained. The rest of the petals I adhered flat on top of the previous layer. For the third layer, I only added a few petals, the ones I felt would be further forward than the others. These petals were curled before adhering into place just at the base. Once the flower was complete, I cut the leaf part of the tag from the green cardstock and added these into place into the die-cut spaces.

20211111 123012 1The sentiment comes from Fancy Greetings Stamp Set and was stamped using Obsidian Ink. Before adding the finished tag into place, I added a little splatter using Pure White Ink Spray for a little added interest.

Denise Ward December 19, 2021 - 11:02 PM

Part of your sentiment perfectly describes your card: lovely! I really like the way you achieved an extra bit of dimension with the flower petals by adding an extra layer that didn’t lay flat. The subtle background created by flicking on the white to the card base added the tiny bit of extra interest yet still allow your tag to be in the spotlight.

Irene December 20, 2021 - 8:29 AM

Another fabulous release and the inspiration is amazing. The lily die is coming my way!

My favorite is the daisy and layering tags. I couldn’t make cards as planned since covid hit my family this past week after an early Christmas gathering. I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday! The illness that I encountered has not be pleasant and my husband just lost his sense of smell today. This blog is keeping me inspired and giving me something to look forward to.
