Instructions: Create a tag shaped card using the largest tag from Album Tags and Accent Die set. To do this, create a tent fold finished card size approx. 6 1/2 x 4 1/2”. Place the die so the top rounded part of the tag blade hangs over the crease of the card and run through the die-cutting machine (the attached video shows how to create a shaped card using the cage but the same applies to the tag). Die-cut 2x large tags in Luxe Gold cardstock and adhere to the front and back of the card blank but do not apply adhesive to the part of the tag that overhangs the card blank. Die-cut 3x smaller tags and the reinforcements from the Ticket and Tags set in kraft. Edge both kraft tags in gold wax and mat one directly to the back of the card. Die-cut the Decorative Cage and 2x corners from Ticket & Tags in white cardstock and edge in gold wax. Adhere the corners to the bottom of the tag by only applying adhesive to the straight edges, do not adhere too taught this will allow the tag to sit nicely inside the corners. Cut a piece of clear cardstock approx. 7 x 8” and partial die-cut the top shape of the cage by overhanging on the die-cutting machine plate. Cut the clear cardstock horizontally with scissors where the die-cut stops. If the die did not cut all the way through the clear cardstock, trim with small scissors the score marks will be very clearly visible. Adhere the white die-cut cage to the acetate and decide how much of a domed shape you want and cut down to size accordingly, leave 1/2” score tabs on either side and place red liner tape on the tabs ready to adhere to the back of the kraft tag.
Die-cut 2x smaller tags in kraft and line with designer paper from French Cottage. Trim down the tags to create smaller tags, one for the back of the card and one to fit inside the corners inside the cage. Use a corner punch to round off the bottom of the trimmed tags and edge in gold wax. Adhere the trimmed down tag to the back of the card and punch a hole through the front and back gold tags, adhere the reinforcements and thread twine. Hole punch the loose tag, add reinforcements, and thread twine. Create rectangle mat and layers in gold, kraft and white cardstock. Stamp Cheerful Note Sentiment in Archival Sepia and edge each mat and layer in gold wax, assemble and adhere to the back of the card with dots. Die-cut the rectangle mat and layer in kraft and Lush Lilac designer paper with Cut, Mat, Create and edge in gold wax, adhere inside the card for writing your message.
Stamp onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper the Floral Song, Cascading Wisteria and Wisteria Petals in versamark and gold heat emboss. Color with Zig Clean Color markers. The inside of the petals and edges of die-cuts have been colored/edged using Stack and Store Daubers in Archival Sepia. Shape the petals and leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tools and assemble the wisteria layering each petal onto a wire/stamen adhering with hot glue each time (see the video link how to create the wisteria). Adhere the wisteria, birds, and feathers with hot glue.
