Welcome to the end of the week everyone! Today I’m on the Pink & Main blog sharing a fun card and tag combo featuring the Cherry Blossom set along with some other great dies.
I didn’t have a specific direction for this project but I really wanted to watercolor so I stamped and heat embossed all the images from Cherry Blossom on Bristol smooth cardstock in gold and watercolored them with my Zig markers and a water brush pen. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and set to figuring out what I was actually going to do with them. Sometimes I really enjoy this process. It’s relaxing to get lost in the process.
For the card, I die cut the Sunburst cover die from black cardstock and adhered it to a card base with liquid glue. Then I arranged my florals how I wanted them and popped them up with foam squares. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Cherry Blossom in gold like the florals and used the coordinating die to cut it out. This is also popped up with foam squares. I trimmed off the excess and my card is finished.
I had images left over so I thought it would be fun to make a coordinating tag. At the same time I didn’t want to use a traditional tag shape so I pulled out the new Layered Oval dies and cut 2 – one from black and one from Bristol smooth cardstocks. I heat embossed another sentiment from Cherry Blossom in gold and glued the ovals together. Then I popped the florals on with foam squares and used a punch to make a whole. I threaded some pink ribbon through the hole and tied it with baker’s twine to finish it off.
I have really enjoyed making coordinating tags to go with cards lately. It’s so fun when things match.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
