Hi, today I have a tag to show you that I have made. The floral is a die from Crafts- Too and has been cut from Core-dinations card stock and pink backing paper. The backing papers I have used are from Joy Crafts. I have used a sentiment stamp from Prickly Pear to create a small scroll. The butterfly stamp came from the £ bin from my local craft shop. I have also stamped and embossed with white powder a Fleur De Lis background stamp from Verve. I have used Spellbinders dies to create the shape at the the top right corner. I have added some hand stitching around the tag as well as two different types of lace and some small pearl flowers. I have finished the card with some buttons, pearls and Stickles glitter glue. The tag is 4 x 6 inches.
