Just Because Vintage Tag

Happy Tuesday!

Today I have a girly, pearly vintage tag to share.


To create the edging of the tag, I started with a piece of Crumb Cake CS cut to 3 9/16 x 6 and put the top of it inside the largest of the IBS Fancy Label Dies 1.  The layered piece of MME Blush was cut at 3 1/16 x 5 1/2 and edged with the second largest of the IBS Dies.  When doing this, only roll through your BigKick (or other cutting machine) until the edge is cut, then back out.  Do not run the entire platform through or you will get an imprint of the rest of the die on your CS.  The odd width measurements are the exact sizes needed to fit the papers inside the dies.  I then distressed the edges with a distressing tool and Crumb Cake Ink.  I also sponged the crochet trim, doily, sentiment, and tulle of the mannequin with Crumb Cake Ink.  The flowers were sponged with Pretty in Pink.  Please click here for the video tutorial on creating the puffy tulle.

I am linking my tag up to the following challenges:

Friday Mashup #100 - Choose your favorite Mashup.  I started by planning to create Mashup #7, which is Feminine and Ribbon/Pearls, but I wasn't sure Crochet Trim and Seam Binding would count as ribbon.  So, I am actually entering this as Mashup #14, which is to use Flowers and Vintage Style.

IBSIC #49 - Color challenge of Kraft, Light Pink, and Green.

Simon Says Stamp & Show - Chic to be Shabby (add a bit of a shabby touch with some brown ink around the edges).

Supplies used:

SU - Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla CS, Crumb Cake and Pretty in Pink Ink, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, and 5/8" Flower Trim

IBS - Fancy Label Dies 1, Crochet Trim, Small Flower, and Just Because Stamp Set

Other Products - MME Blush PP, Recollections Pearls, CTMH Find Your Style Stamp Set, Doily, Eyelet, and Tulle

Thanks for stopping by!
