Instructions: The finished size of this Tag is 21.2 cm x 12.8 cm. The photo size, 3 cm x 3.5 cm. Cut the tag shape out from the Purple card stock and the paper from the paper collection. Taking the Cascading Fuchsia stamp set and the matching die, stamp and die cut using the Very Vanilla card stock. Color the Fuchsias with the distress inks. Prick a whole in the center of the flowers. Ball and shape with the Deluxe Shaping Kit. Using the waxed string, tie a knot on one end then thread all the layers and a few beads. Apply glue between each layer to secure. Making 9 flowers and 1 flower bud. Taking the Bold Leaf stamp set, use the Forest Moss ink to stamp. Die cut using the matching die set. To make the circle sentiment, use the You Inspire Me stamp set. Stamp with gold embossing powder then die cut using the circle dies from the Spellbinders S4-116. For the Celebrating You sentiment, use the You Inspire Me stamp set and the Everyday Heroes die set. Ink around the edges of both sentiments with Seedless Preserves. Find the paper with the lace edges strip in the paper collection, cut out.

Making a mask from the Cascading Fuchsia die, the oval lattice. Cut this x 3 from scrap card stock. Cut away the out side frame. Glue the lattice together to form the mask. Use the same die and Purple card stock to make a extra frame, add a little gesso to the frame then put aside.

Taking the tag made from the paper collection, bring a layer of gesso to the tag. Using the mask, apply the gold medium. When dry, apply a thin layer of gesso so the gold is not too overpowering but you still see it. Using Glimmer mist, spray a little color, misting with water when needed. Let it run over the tag. Taking the gold embossing powder and the Fuchsia Bouquet stamp set, stamp on both right side corners. Ravel the edges of the tag with the distressing tool. Apply versamark to the edges here and there, gold embossing powder then fix with the heat tool. Adhere the two tags together with Double Dots. For the photo, cut a piece of cardboard from a box to fit. Adhere this together. Sand the edges of the photo to give a white distressed edge.

To put it all together: In the following order, adhere the paper lace strip, the purple frame to the left side of the tag, place and arrange the top cluster of Fuchsia flowers and leaves. Place the photo using Double Dots to give extra height. Arrange and adhere the sentiments to the right of the photo. Arrange and adhere the small cluster of leaves and Fuchsias to the lower left and under the photo. Take 3 lengths of green string to tie a bow at the top of the tag. To make the clear butterflies, take the clear card stock and stamp the butterflies with the Butterfly Medley stamp, using Stazon ink. Die cut with the matching die. (Note: this will not cut through the clear card stock but it will give you a cutting line to go by.) Cut the images out then color with the alcohol inks. (Note: Add color from the flip side of the stamping or the alcohol will smudge your image.) To finish, bend the wings up from the body and adhere to the tag with cut to size glue dots.
