This one is specially made to enter the Heart 2 Heart Blog Challenge, Tag, You're It.
I started off with this one thinking about woodgrain, so wanted to use the Dakota Paper Packet.
Instead of the woodgrain paper, though, I made my own with some Kraft Cardstock, Saddle Ink, and the wood stamp from the Universal Backgrounds My Acrylix. I attached this paper to a tag shape that I got from the Dimensional Elements Tags set and covered with Colonial White Cardstock shapes cut to match the tag exactly from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.
The flower incorporates both sides of one sheet of B&T Duo paper. I inked the edges with Outdoor Denim Ink to give each layer some definition. Yep, it was messy, but oh, so worth it! I LOVE the way it turned out!!! The leaves are made of Olive ribbon from the retired Designer Ribbon Green Collection.
I used the flower cut on page 54 of the Cricut Artiste Cartridge which I cut at 1.75, 1.5, 1.25, and 1 inch on my E2 cutting machine to form the layers of the flower.
At the center of the flower is a tiny button from the Buttons Basic Assortment that has a thread of the burlap ribbon tied in the center. I used one that I had carefully pulled from the edges of the ribbon to make it fray a bit.
I selected a versatile THANKS sentiment for my tag that I fashioned with the brand new Keyboard Kraft Alphabet stickers from Close to My Heart. I also added a houndstooth pattern Irresistibles Frame to ground my embellishments. The Hemp Bakers Twine that I used as the tie of the tag is in the Mini Medley Accents Wooden Collection.
