Hey there ‘Fetti Fans!

Stop the presses…I got in some studio time and was able to create a fun tag set for this week’s WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS post.

What is WEDNESDAY IN THE WORKS? It’s not really about one thing in particular, but rather “the works” of a stamped card or project.  A variety of topics will be covered in this segment… from color combos to shaped cards to inspiration pieces to mixing and matching stamps and/or papers…and everything in between.

For this week’s segment, I want to chat about using the negative of a die cut, as well as adding some texture to your project.

I really had a lot of fun creating these tags and it was easy to whip up 4 of them that I can keep on hand and add to birthday gifts as needed.

First, I cut 4 large tags from white cardstock (TAG ME Confetti Cuts).

Second, I stamp the sentiment from LOTS TO SAY on the top portion of each tag.

Next, I used one of the large flowers from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set to cut out the flowers on each of the tags.

I then added burlap behind the flower cut and embellished with a flower and leaves from the PETALS ‘N POSIES Confetti Cuts die set, along with enamel dots.

I love the look and feel that the burlap adds to the negative space on these tags, especially in contrast to those enamel dots!

Since the back of the tag now had a small square of burlap adhered to it, I cut 4 more tags in coordinating pattern paper and attached them to the back to cover it.
