Hello Crafty Friends!
It's Dana and I'm back to share a card and matching tag I creates to hopefully inspire you! I love sending my friends and family homemade cards. So I thought why not create a matching tag too! I'm using Clear Scraps Chipboard tags Click Here
And for my card I chose to use one of Clear Scraps Chipboard wordsClick Here
I fell in love with Carta Bella new Flower Garden collection so I thought this would be perfect for Spring!
For my tag: I traced my tag shape twice onto one of the papers in this collection. These tags measure 3.75 x 6.75 inches. For this project I only one of the tags. I'll save the other three to use on future projects. Cut out your tag shape, punch a hole at the top. Adhere your paper to the front and back of your chipboard tag. I prefer using Beacons 3 in 1 glue. It's fast drying and adheres quickly. Then I took one of the journaling cards, inked the edges and added foam dots to the back, before adhering to the center of my tag. I glued a matching chipboard over the marching journaling card image. Added a sticker border to the bottom of my tag, along with a sticker flower on the left side (I used foam dots to adhere flower)
To finish off my tag, I matted a sticker sentiment onto green coordinating paper adhered this at the top with foam dots. Adhered 3 enamel dots to the right side of my journaling card. Tied some matching ribbons through the hole at the top!
For my card: My card measures 6x6 inches. I added the coordinating green paper over the base of my card with glue. For the next two card layers I cut my papers slightly smaller and matted then onto my card using foam tape. This adds dimension and a nice layered look to your card. Set your card aside for now.
Next we will decorate our chipboard "Love" words. I chose to apply some Art Alchemy Impasto paint (Mint) to my chipboard surface, using a slight pouncing motion. It adds a nice textured look. Let dry.
Next I chose one of ephemera cards sentiment, inked the edges with a light blue distress ink. Then added some foam dots to the back and adhered to the top center of my card. I fussy cut a few flowers from my sticker sheet and pop dot them onto my ephermera card. I added some dazzle stickers to my flower centers.
Now take your Love chipboard word and adhere with glue to the bottom of your card. I took another empherma word title, cut it apart, inked the edges and glued on the bottom right side of my card. To finish off my card, I pop dot a flower pot above my grows here sentiment. Added a few enamel dots.
I hope you enjoyed my project today and you'll be inspired to make some for yourself to send to that special someone in your life! Thank you for visiting the Clear Scraps blog today! Don't forget to visit the Clear Scraps website to see all the newest products! Click Here
