Don't you just love it??? Here are all the details . .
- Base card stock is Die Cuts With a View.
- Lace, ribbon, buttons and fabric yoyo's are from my stash.
- Image is from a vintage Valentines card I found online.
- Stickles: Diamond, Platinum, Icicles, and Christmas Red
- Sentiment printed on ink jet printer.
Tips, Tools and Techniques:
- Tag base was cut using Cricut Expression, A Child's Year cartridge,
using the Tag feature set at 5". I cut out three tags: one from black cardstock, one from plain white cardstock, and a third from a pretty red patterned paper with white polka dots for the back. (Sorry, I forgot to take a pic of the back!) And I 'laminated' them using Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac adhesive. Laminating the tag like this makes it much more stable and holds up better to the weight of the fabric and lace.
- The image was printed on white cardstock, trimmed around, and popped up on the tag with foam squares. The 'flames' were not a part of the image, so I cut freehand and cut a slit in the missile and tucked the end of the flame inside to make it look more a part of the picture. I put a bit of platinum stickles on her hair and the center of the flame; red stickles on the flame and highlights on the missle,as well as around the tag perimeter; Icicle in the center of the flame, and Diamond all over the missile.
- The yoyos are made by cutting a 4" diameter circle of fabric and basting with needle and thread all around the perimeter, then drawing tight and sewing the button on the center. These buttons are vintage, in fact I thnk the red one was from one of my mother's house robes from my long ago childhood! :o)
- The sentiment was printed on white cardstock, trimmed with pinking shears, backed with black cardstock and glued to the tag.
UPDATE/UPDATE/UPDATE!!! I just realized I've crossed the 10,000 visitor milestone on this blog! So to go along with my "Little Gifts" Campaign, if you'll leave a comment here on this post, on Saturday 1/15 I'll pick a winner and send you this tag, along with a few other little goodies. Due to my budget constraints, I'm afraid I'll have to limit this to folks in the United States. Thanks for understanding! Becky
