A Modern Take on a Beautiful Vintage Tag - Is that an oxymoronic description? by Donna

So glad you have arrived at our crafty place!

Donna E here with a marvelous tag that was pure joy to make!


Do you enjoy playing with your art supplies to see what they can do when you push the norm? The techniques here are full of surprises.

It began with a 5x7 embossing folder and Chrome Silver mirror cardstock (Apologies for the poor lighting). You may use just about any size embossing folder.

After dry embossing I decided it would look fantastic to add blue coloring to the debossed areas (yes, I did that backwards, deciding to color AFTER embossing the cardstock - lack of planning on my part). To keep the ink in place on this non-porous surface, Clear Detail Embossing Powder was dredged on top of the dry embossed tag, and heat set:

TIP: this was a great lesson because I learned that the Clear Detail Embossing Powder anchored the ink in place AND kept the shininess, but refracted the light enough to help with taking photos!



The die cut leaves were covered with Brushable Glue and dredged with two monochromatic "blue tone" ultrafine glitters: 

Fascination G1030 (mixture of blues and other hues to bring out some silveriness) 


Blue Lightning G1008 (bright bold blue that sparkles gorgeously)

Sentiment is from Pretty Blooms Rubber Stamp Set 873(also in digital format).


The glue for the glitter dried in the time it took to assemble the ribbon and die cut the sentiment, even on a rainy day.



A slate blue background was punched with an old edge punch and adhered to the tag. Everything else was adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Double Sided Tape.
