Craft Queen Christmas in July - Tags

Hi Ladies,

Craft Queen is having Christmas in July this month, so I thought I would share a few tags and a card made using the Kaisercraft Turtle Dove Collectables with some pretty ribbons and embellishments available in store.

Cardinal Tag

The background on this tag was created using some Dylusions mists in red and green then spraying a Quatrefoil mask with water and randomly pressing onto the dried misted area, making sure you hold the mask in place for about 10 to 20 seconds so that the water will react with the mist.  I layered some ribbons and a border from the Collectables pack at the bottom of the tag, then layered a few more of the Collectables with foam tape in the centre of my tag. I finished of  with a satin seam binding bow, topped with a pearl embellishment.

Christmas Joy Tag

For this tag I covered the top and bottom with red floral washi tape then overlayed with some paper from the Pickled Pear 6" pad which was stamped with a Christmas background stamp.  The bottom of the pp was punched then layered with some ric rac and gathered lace.  It's so easy to used the diecut collectables.  I just layered a few from the Turtle Dove Collection together with some foam tape, then finished off the tag with a pretty ribbon bow.

Vintage Card

A quick vintage inspired card using more of the Collectables which were layered with foam tape. The tree was altered using some silver glitter glass to give it a snowy feel.  Again to create a Wintery feel, I used some white mini rosette ribbon at the bottom of the card.  The lovely background pp is from the Kaisercraft Marigold 6" pad.
