Something Different Saturday...
I thought that it was high time I reinstated by Something Different Saturday where I showcase a project that is not strictly a card. It may be a tag, a card set, an MDF piece or my favourite a Box! so here is the first Something Different Saturday of 2016 and its a tag! Now this page is designed to math the Box that I am beavering away on for next Saturday's post.
This is a simple project made as it is from layering onto a tag cut from the largest of Sue Wilson double pierced tags set for Creative Expressions. I find this die so useful that it is held in my basics book as I get it out so often!! This tag was embossed with the A4 star Swirls embossing folder to add a layer of texture. I then rubbed Pearl Moon CS gilding was over the raised design and rubbed the excess off, and added a lovely shine, with a dry wet wipe.
I stamped the outline stitched stamps form my pierced flags clear stamp set and cut it out using the matching die designed by Sue Wilson. Next I stamped the sentiment, appropriate for a Saturday I thought, in detail white CS embossing powder onto Wisteria foundation card and cut this out with the same large tag die form the set. I foam mounted this sentiment flag over the plain stamped one slightly offset and foam mounted them both onto the right hand side of the page.
Next I stamped CE silver double sided satin ribbon with the camellia border stamp form my Camellia elements clear stamp set in black archival repeating the pattern to cover approx half a metre. next I made a double bow with the stamped ribbon and used the remainder as a tie thought the top hole in the tag. Finally I made up a coconut white Camellia flower us the Sue Wilson Camellia die set and finished it with a pearl in the centre. I added this over the bow and placed it on the top left as shown.
A simple tag that could, if you like, make a card in itself !
