Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Tag

Hello Friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday Season, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very blessed New Year!!
For my project today, I decided to make a tag using the Vintage Floret Collection and the beautiful dies from the Decorative Chateau Gate die set.

Products Used:

Pearl Metallic Cardstock, Natural White Cardstock by Neenah Papers, Victorian Velvet, Broken China, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress Inks, Blue Pearls, Blue Silk Ribbon by May Arts, Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L.

Tag measures approximately  8” x 3 ¾”.  Die cut 3 small square windows from the Decorative Chateau Gate Die set with pearl cardstock. Cut tag base to  6” x 2 3/8” using pearl metallic cardstock and another piece with Designer Paper.  Glue square windows on top and bottom of pear metallic tag base. Glue Designer Paper piece on top of tag base as pictured.

Cut sentiment from Vintage Floret Paper Collection and frame with pearl metallic cardstock. Cut sides from the extra square window and attach to top and bottom of sentiment. Adhere to tag using foam squares.

Stamp flowers using two smallest flower stamps from the Vintage Floret PreCut sets using blue distress ink on Natural White cardstock. Die cut with coordinating dies. For the leaves, stamp star flower in green distress ink and die cut with coordinating die. Shape flowers and embellish with a blue pearl in the center. Add more color to edges of flowers and leaves with distress inks. Arrange flowers and leaves on tag as pictured using foam squares.
Make a bow using blue silk ribbon and adhere to tag top.
