Happy Monday everyone. Well this is a happy monday for me, because I have the day off. No plans, other than hopefully work on some more cards.
Yesterday afternoon I pulled out me new Verve set - More than love. I love the sentiments that come with this set. After looking through some of my 6x6 paper pads I decided to go the the Prima - Tea thyme. So with lots of die cutting, this is what I came up with.
I began by cutting out a tag shape by using a Verve die. I placed the die on the paper to incorporate some of the flowers on one side. I then stamped the sentiment using black versafine. After playing around with several dies and about an hour of time I finally made a decision on how to finish this.
I cut a piece of vellum using Marvelous Squares. I adhered this to the middle of my base designer paper. Next I used a die from Anna Griffin, then used labels #6 for the green layer, then sponged the edges with gathered twigs.
The Eiffel Tower was cut from a piece of brownish/grey c/s. I wanted something a little more sturdy, so I cut it again using some chip board. I coloured the chipboard by sponging some distress gathered twigs. I then glued the c/s to the chipboard, then sponged some gathered twigs around the edges.
To finish off I added a piece of tattered pearl lace along the top. Added some silk ribbon to the tag along with a little bow made with my bow maker, then added dimensionals to the back of the tag to give it some height off of the card. I cut one of the flourishes from - SB corners and accents and adhered that to the right side of the green layer. I then cut the flourish again from some bazzill quartz c/s and then just cut the flourish part off and adhered the heart flower part over the green flourish then added a pearls.
