I made two tags for two friends with different tastes:
The one above used Country Life. I used the Cricut Craft Room to extend her pant legs and make boots from her previously bare feet. I hand cut her jacket, trimmed her previously long hair, and added a leash. Her dog, Sneaker, loves to wear bandanas and go for walks. The flower is from the Flower Shoppe and is inked with Copics and Sneaker’s “boots” were inked with a white Uni-ball Signo pen. The tag is from Winter Frolic and the red cardstock is embossed with a rose pattern from Lifestyle Crafts. It was inked with Barn Door Distress Ink to bring out more of the dimension. I have to say, I really love how this turned out. I hope my friend does too.
The one below used Something to Celebrate for the birds with their heart and I used the same embossing folder as the previous tag. I inked it and added glossy accents and glitter. This is the same Winter Frolic tag. The branch is the “tree” from Paper Doll dress up turned sideways. There is a lot of pattern and glitter on this tag – aqua and red is one of the recipient’s favorite color combos (and mine too). The roses were made from the Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge. I wrote the Happy Valentine Day (couldn’t fit the ‘s) on the heart as my friend loves those conversation hearts (that I couldn’t find anywhere)….And although it is very different than the tag above, I really love this one too!
Both tags include an Tim Holtz easel stand so the recipients can stand them up if they choose.
And here is one attached to a red gift bag:
Wherever you are today, I hope your day is sweet!
