Today we're Creating an Awesome Tag with Stampin'Up!'s New Designer Tags Dies. These dies are sleepers because they are not associated with a stamp set or bundle--they are sleeping in the back on the catalog among all the dies and if you are not careful--you'll miss them!
But miss them you do NOT want to do--they are quick, easy and quite beautiful with minimal effort!
Here's today's tag...
and, a bit closer look...
This tag uses 2 of the dies in this set---first we used the largest die with the top and bottom slits---this provides a really pretty way to add some zing with the new Rose Gold White 5/8" ribbon--the slits allow the ribbon to enter from front to back at the top, travel down the back and out through the bottom slit.
The fancy top and bottom edges are quite pretty and drew my attention to the rose cut-out die...so I layered the die on top of the Polished Pink tag, die cut the rose and layered white cardstock on the back of the tag to highlight the beautiful design. I love sparkle so I winked (Wink of Stella) the white rose to add pizzazz.
Then to add a touch of romance I added three heart pearls--the heart shape is quite subtle but the pearls add that charm to complete the design. Quick, easy, perfect!
Stop back by on Thursday to see another creation with these dies!
I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.
