A Faithful Friend Tag

Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe the month is almost gone. I set some “loose yearly goals” for this coming year where I would like to at least do four blog posts a month…preferably more. Well, this is my fourth post of the month…yay!

Anyways, I would like to share a tag I created using the largest tag from the Tag Collection Thinlits by Tim Holtz and the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder by Eileen Hull. Let’s get started!

I cut from Kraft Cardstock the largest tag and the reinforcer from the Tag Collection Thinlits. I placed the tag into the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. Next, I applied Rose Gold Luster Wax over the embossed image on the tag and a soft blue chalk ink to add a weathered look to the tag.

I dug into my scrap pile of cardstock, rough upped the edges of the larger piece and added two smaller patterned pieces of cardstocks (the larger cardstock piece slightly hung off the tag while the other two pieces of cardstock were placed under the larger piece) and adhered all to the base of the tag.

I had a scrap piece of the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits that I tore and placed onto the tag. I selected the two women diecut from the Mini Paper Dolls Pack and glued to the tag along with a scrap of sheer fabric. I picked the “A faithful friend” sentiment from the Clippings Cardstock Stickers and placed above the women. I cut two flowers and a leaf sprig from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus, adhered the flowers on top of each other and glued the leaf sprig to the back of the flower before adding to the tag. I finished by placing a Glossy Dot in the center of the flower and gluing a vintage button to the tag.
