Tag, you're it!

Hi there everyone, it's Tina back again with a tag tutorial.  I love to create tags as they can be used in so many ways, such as on a card, layout or attached to a gift.  They are a great way to try out new techniques, or when you only have a small amount of time to create.

1. Cut a tag from Core'dinations cardstock, and emboss it using the Honeypot die and tan Embossing Mat.  (Layer it with cutting plate, tan mat, cardstock, die facing down, cutting plate and run through your die-cutting machine as you normally would to emboss )  Do this a number of times to cover the tag, making sure you line up the pattern.

2. Sand to accentuate the pattern.  As you can see I embossed with the die on the back (uncoated side)of the cardstock and sanded the front.  You will get a different effect if you emboss on front.

3. Cut Nopstalgia from cardstock and heat emboss.

4. Spritz background with a shimmery mist. Cut three of the Autumn Leaf, and layer under some muslin.  Attach Nostalgia diecut using Mini Foam Dots behind the photograph.  Add a small title and embellishment and you're finished.
