For this project I made two versions. One is a set of tags and the other a card featuring the tag center stage. I really loved how this project turned out!
Tags: The tags were made by covering cardstock tags which measured 2.5 by 4.5 inches with hymnal sheets. I layered some sheer vintage fabric in a square and a digital tag that was printed underneath the angel image. The angel image is 2.5 inches tall by 1 3/4 inches wide. I used fabric tac to secure these down.
Next, I placed silver Stickles (Ranger) along the edge of the angel image. I set this aside to dry for a few hours. Once dry, I tied a little bit of vintage seam binding through the top of tag. A little snowflake punch from white sparkly paper adorns the corner and a mother of pearl button in the middle. I printed “Christmas Wishes” on my computer and added the text underneath.
Card: The card was made by layering paper on to a white 5 inch by 6.5 inch cardstock card base. I started with a piece of tea stained manila envelope paper. This was followed by a textured paper that I cut a little bit smaller. The third piece of paper is watercolor paper that had been run through my Sizzix with one of my embossed “Bubble” folders. I torn the edges very carefully before gluing down. The last piece of paper is a handmade mulberry paper. By layering the papers in different sizes and textures it gives a very pleasing effect.
The last step was adding the tag. I used natural colored hemp cording for the top and ran Fabric Tac glue to set it up.
