Yesterday a new Crafty Friends Challenge was posted. Heather is the hostess for this challenge and her challenge for us is to create anything BUT a card. I decided to create a tag with one of the new Pagemaps dies from the Tags & Flags die pack.

The card base was created by cutting and embossing a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with one of the tag die from the Pagemaps die pack. A piece of Bazill Basics Paper Vintage Marketplace patterned paper was cut with the same die. The edges were sanded and then it was cut down on the embossed edge. The paper was adhered to the tag base.

An insert from Classic Decorative Insert 6 and a cutting edge from Classic Edge One were used to cut and embossed a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was adhered under a 3/8″ wide strip of another pattern from the Vintage Marketplace paper. The strip was adhered to the tag and the edges were stitched. Seam binding was tied around the upper edge of the horizontal strip.

More Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the dress from die from Sewing Elements and the rectangle tag die from Home Sweet Home . Both pieces were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The dress form was adhered to the left hand side of the tag. The tag was stamped with a sentiment from The Craft’s Meow’s Sew Lovely stamp set in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. The tag was tied on to the bow with embroidery thread and a button. Rhinestones from Silver Baby Bling Rhinestones and a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful Monday.
Hugs and smiles
