Hey guys just a quick post today. I’m sharing a sweet little country chic inspired greeting card created with Plaid Flower Tags Digital Collage Sheet from my shop. Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created the card…..
Hello everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a lovely nature inspired Christmas greeting card today that I created using the Winter Birds Christmas Tags printable from our shop. I really do love birds in winter….well all the time really. But there’s just something so sweet about a fragile little creature out in the elements and still being lovely.
I chose the patterned papers to coordinate with the tag. The dark red paid balances the holiday foliage pattern.
These super beautiful flowers are new to RRR and I can not even tell you how much I love them!!! I’ve made a small arrangement here with the blooms and altered chipboard and glittery accents.
The die cut wreath matches the one on the tag perfectly and creates a nice base for all the layers. Adding a bit of chunky twine and a simple tied bow of satin ribbon helps to balance the flowers and tucking in a doily helps to break up the busy patterns.
I am obsessed with actual vintage buttons and I always think they are well worth the work to scour antique shops to find them…like a vintagy treasure hunt.
All I needed to finish this card was a tiny sentiment and clip in holiday green.
We’ve prepared a process video for this card so you can see how it was created. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
Well helloooo there Paper Peeps. Ginny here with another installment of Christmas in July and this time I’m using a garden full of flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with trims of course.
This is just so cheerful and sweet. I stamped and colored those little images. I do love to color.
Did I mention this is a shaker tag? I’m slightly obsessed with them right now. Inside are coordinating sequins and Shaved Ice. These little cuties were a bit lost on the busy background pattern so layered in a bit of a snowy border hill for them to stand on.
So. Many. Flowers. Isn’t the burlap trim a wonderful texture behind the snowflake printed satin?
I added a bit of tinsel trim for extra sparkle and included a twine loop to hang.
So I’m sharing many projects today as I’ve created a really great new Butterfly and Clocks Tags Digital Collage Sheet and once I printed it I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop. The great thing about this sheet besides the fact that it’s a Dollar Download Item is that you can create 3 finished tags with the sheet just as it is. Or if you’re like me…you can add extra emebllies to incorporate your own personal style.
The first one on the left is created just by snipping out the images and assembling the layers. I added some 110 lb cardstock to the back as well to make them more sturdy. Topped off with my RRR trim it’s gorgeous and ready to add to a gift or to label a baked treat. The one on the right has some mixed media supplies added to antique the images a bit and then was assembled with foam spacers between the layers. More trims, a metal eyelet and lace kicks it up a notch.
These tags have the same images but I’ve added chipboard, dimensional flowers, and metal embellies.
I’ve taken the tags a bit further now and added one to a card base with simple cardstock and an embossed texture. I’ve wound the ribbons and lace around to create a coordinating background that shows off the focal tag as the centerpiece. And last but not least…my favorite. I dug in my stash just a bit to find some patterned papers that matched the butterfly and created a larger tag to adhere a die cut doily, the printed and snipped images, flowers and more of the beautiful RRR trims.
I could have kept going all day as there are so many great uses for tags. And at only $1 for the download file I’ll bet you’ll have a hard time stopping too!
