Vintage Tag Slider

I have been very busy lately on building my stock for the handmade cards, tags and what-have-yous I can sell to everyone. The stock is building up not as quickly as I want it because I am still missing some bits and pieces of embellishments that will complete the whole project. However, I am still working on meeting my goal of making maximum of 2-3 cards per week and some tags if I have the time and materials.

So, let me give you a peek of what I have done today so you know what to expect when I start peddling my handmade with love cards.

I printed some vintage images from the public domain, used Bo Bunny patterned paper, added crackle paint on the flowers, birds and the sentiment to add that aged and shabby look, also used embossing technique on the front tag, use Graphic 45 patterned paper for the pull out, some tulle for the ribbon, affixed a cabochon rose in peach color and lastly, hang 2 cute metal charms (key and made with love).

I'm really getting the hang of making vintage and shabby looking cards and tags. I am leaning towards plenty of rich texture and dimension, use of paper flowers, plenty of laces and ribbons and pearls. That's why I still have few more arts supplies to receive in the coming days to complete the stash. My last purchases will be more of inks, distress stains from Tim Holtz, rubber and cling ons, patterned paper and mulberry flowers. Then I can go full swing on creating lovely cards and tags for your special someone.
