Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Standard Circles Small, Tear Drop Circles, Distressed Inks (Victorian Velvet and Peeled Paint), Ribbon and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by creating your tag out of White cardstock.  My tag is 8 1/2″ x 4″.  Next create a smaller layer using a piece of designer paper from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection. For a nice layer effect, take the Decorative Oval Die but only cut half of the die!  To achieve this effect tape the die to your cardstock with enough paper for the entire die.  Now you will need to tape the paper and die to your top plate so that only the portion of the die that you want cut is under the plate.  By using tape this will ensure that the dies does not move.  Now using the sandwich combination required by your machine, die cut and emboss the die.  Only the portion of the die between the plates will be cut.  After the cutting is complete, simply trim the extra paper that was not die cut into whatever shape you desire.  I trimmed mine into a 1″ wide rectangle.  Finish your tag by adding some lace, sentiments and a few other embellishments such as pretty flat-backed pearls.  Also don’t forget to add some of those lovely Cascading Fuchsia flowers!

Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
