Vintage Inspired Luggage Tag

Hi everyone and welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

I was having so much fun playing with all the lovely Heartfelt Creations products that I had to share with you another project!  This time I made my version of a pretty little vintage-inspired luggage tag.  I just love the sweet little pink bicycle and just had to make it a focal point on my tag : )

I hope this lovely collection has inspired your creativity as well.  The possibilities are truly endless!

Products Used:

HCPC 3494 – Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCPC 3500 – Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCPC 3502 – Mini Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die

HCDP1 228 – Timeless Amour Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Lace from my stash and Bling from my dear friend Judy, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a 6″ x 6″ card out of a piece of DP from the Timeless Amour Paper Collection and then cut another 6″ x 6″ piece of coordinating DP for the inside.  Scor the 6″ x 6″ piece down the middle and then from corner to corner for a total of 3 scor lines.  Attach the 2 pieces of DP together and then decorate as desired.  For the flowers on the inside I kept them flat so the card can close and for the flowers on the front I stamped, distressed and die cut using the lovely Vintage Floret die and stamps.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
