WT158 Tag




I can't even begin to tell you how much I have struggled with this tag challenge - this was my third attempt!!!

Then I just took a look around my complete disaster's table and found some leftovers from previous cards I've tried to create....

Now we have a winner - I started with Chocolate Chip CS and rounded the bottom corners with the punch and the upper ones were punched with the super fabulous "Corner Adorner" from EK Success.

Same thing on the Very Vanilla CS. After punching the corners I stamped the CS with the "Always" set and I chose the "leave" from this set as well as the little round flower. The leaves were stamped with Chocolate Chip and the flowers with Bashful Blue. I also distressed the edges with Bashful Blue.

The flowers from the "A Beautiful Thing" set were embossed with Gold EP and cut out. The sentiment from "Fundamental Phrases" was stamped in Bashful Blue and placed behind the Antique Brass Label Holder. I used the new Poly Twill Ribbon to fasten the Holder.

The flowers and the Very Vanilla CS were raised with Stampin Dimensionals..... ~TFL~!!!

I love this tag, you did a great job after all was said and done! I like the contract between the gold and the chocolate chip. I usually only use silver embossing powder, I need to get with the times and expand my colours!!

Third time's the charm....this is a wonderful tag. I love how you embossed the flowers and added the gold brads. The embossing stands out wonderfully. Joan

You may have struggled, but you definitely hit the mark - this tag is GOJUS (in the words of JanTInk!)
