I started this card by making the tag first. After stamping a sentiment from O Christmas Tree, I used the Bags & Tags dies to create the tag. I love that these dies are open ended, so that you can adjust to whatever height you need. Such a cool idea!
Next I ran the Blossom Die through the die cut machine about 16 different times, cutting each color multiple times. As I paper pieced the colors into the white outline, I left a few pieces as single layers, but most of them I layered 2 or 3 times to create added dimension. I just love how they puff up at varying heights. For several days I planned to keep the tag just as a tag, but at the last minute I decided I also wanted to see how it would look on a card, so I ended up doing both. (My die cut machine got an extra big workout for these projects.) I didn't want to take any focus away from that beautiful flowers, so I added a few score lines on the right hand side of my card base and called it good.
I have a few more projects that I created with the Blossom Die and coordinating stamp set (you'll love that, too!). I truly could not stop creating with them. I LOVE them, and the ideas kept coming and coming. So stay tuned, because I'll be sharing more in the coming weeks. I hope you'll have a fabulous weekend. We've been away from home this week and are gearing up for a super hot and humid weekend. I'm feeling especially grateful for air conditioning at the moment. :) Thanks for stopping by today!
