For this card I pulled out well aged package of ephemera from Pink Paislee, this was from the Portfolio collection, and just started playing around.
I started started by layering a bunch of pieces together to create the stitched piece, I wanted a little bit of a medallion and I liked the look of it on the tag. The layers were machine stitched together and then I popped up the halves of the heart for some extra dimension.
Then I thought, why not use tags instead of patterned papers to kind of frame the tag? So I played around with placement a bit, and came up with this combination.
I thought about placing the tags directly on my card base, but decided that some patterned paper might soften it a bit and goodness knows it's not like I don't have any patterned paper (this one came from an old Studio Calico card kit pad).
It's also been ages since I actually used my washi for anything other than holding down a die in the Big Shot, but I wanted something to define the corners of the patterned paper as well as add a little more of a graphic punch to the card.
Finally, I pulled out my Gardenia Blooms Journaling Card stamp set for the sentiment which was stamped on one of the banners from my Scalloped die set and popped up with foam tape.
Some Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings finished this off.
This was such a fun card to put together and it really came together quickly. I'm loving diving back into the stash and seeing what happens!
