C88 Floral Dreams Collection
by Ewelina Gryglak
For this tag you will need:
Blossom paper C88 007
Melody paper C88 002
Stencil DS 055 C88 range
Chipboard die-cut MAKE A WISH DC88 007
Chipboard die-cut BIRD BATH DC88 013
Other: matching colour card tags, texture paste, floral bristle, lace, pink and white ink, 3d double-sided foam tape, glue, glitter and mica flakes
Your base is a tag made from colour card that matches the C88 007 and 002 papers. From Blossom paper C88 007, cut out a slightly smaller tag that you will glue onto the base tag. I traced the original tag on the paper and then cut it 2mm from the inside line. This is your first layer.
Using Stencil DS 055 C88 range and texture paste (you can mix it with the pink ink to add colour), make a ‘stamp’ on the background. Sprinkle both white and pink ink all over the tags to add colour and texture. Leave to dry.
Colour the Chipboard die-cuts MAKE A WISH DC88 007 and BIRD BATH DC88 013 to match your colour theme (I used white ink to make it stand out). Leave it to dry.
Cut out individual flowers and a fairy from the Melody paper C88 002.
Attach the fussy cut floral elements to the tags using 3d double-sided foam. Then add the chipboards – attach the same way.
To finish, stick threads of floral bristle under the embellishments; dab glue randomly all over the tags and sprinkle glitter and mica flakes to add more texture and some sparkle.
