Perfect Plaids: Beautiful set illustrated by Tami Mayberry. I had an idea for this set, creating another CAS card, but ended up making a tag and I totally love it!!

Directions:
  • Stamp borders on Manila Tag in Versamark ink, add clear embossing powder and heat it up.
  • Sponge tag with Peeled Paint, Barn Door and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Adhere Manila Tag to a bigger Kraft Tag.
  • Stamp snowflake on a piece of Sandy Beach CS in Memento Pistachio Ink. Die-cut piece with Circle Nestabilities. Ink edges with Walnut Stain Distress. Adhere it to tag. Add little green rhinestone
  • Stamp sentiment in Walnut Stain Distress.
  • Die-cut and emboss a poinsettia and leave using Poinsettia Dies. Add Star Dust Stickles to all edges, add medium green rhinestone.
  • Add ribbon and hemp to tag.


Tag Recipe:
  • Cardstock: Sandy Beach (GKD)
  • Stamps: Perfect Plaids, Simple Snowflakes (GKD)
  • Ink: Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain (Tanger), Versamark (Tsukineko)
  • Accessories: Star Dust Stickles (Ranger), Manila Tag, Large Kraft Tag (TH Ranger), Green Rhinestones, Green Seam Binding Ribbon, Brown Hemp.
