Hello there, today I have a tag shaped card to share with you using the Altenew Candystripe Cosmos Layering Stamp & Die Set. This is such a beautiful floral and I thought the shape of it would work well on a tag shaped card.
PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.
To start with, I took the outline of the Altenew Candystripe Cosmos Layering Stamp & Die Set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink. I then stamped the layers on top. What I love about Altenew sets is that you can use the outline on it's own or use the layers. You also do not have to use all of the layers and can just use some.
I stamped the flower petals using Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Inks - Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious and Razzleberry. For the flower centre, I used Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Inks - Sunray and Snapdragon. For the stem and leaves I used Altenew Green Fields Crisp Dye Inks - Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen.
When I went to die-cut the image out, I realised that I did not stamp the stem in alignment, so I ended up fussy cutting the image out with scissors. In the video, I show how you can stamp and then die cut making sure that it is in alignment. I die cut two tags from white cardstock from the Altenew Terrific Tags Die Set for the card base. On one, I stamped the sentiment from the set with Obsidian Pigment Ink.
On the other, I scored towards the top to make a hinge for the card base. I then adhered the tags back to back at the hinge. The flower was adhered on top with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. I added Altenew Cherry Blossom Enamel Dots and then finished off by adding twine through the top and tied in a bow at the front.
Here is the video showing how I made the card:
