Welcome back! How funky is the Everyday Essentials range of dies? They are so versatile. Today I've used the 2 Tags and Bird Branch set to create this card.
1/ Pick three sheets of patterned paper to be your background mat. Cut the largest to 6" x 4" and the next two each slightly smaller than that.
2/ Using a sponge dauber, apply some brown ink through a stencil onto the smallest mat. Ink all the edges of the three sheets in brown ink and distress the edges. Use double sided tape to stick them together.
3/ Cut one of the larger tag dies and cut that in half long ways. Ink the edges in brown.
4/ Cut the smaller tag die in a neutral colour and ink edges in brown. Mount this on some spare cardboard so it will be raised.
5/ Cut the bird from green paper.
6/ Cut a banner shape from red paper. Cut the two sentiments from patterned paper.
7/ Adhere the banner strip first, then slide the two halves of the large tag just under the edges and stick down.
8/ Adhere a length of ribbon down the centre of the banner. Adhere the sentiments over the ribbon to help keep it in place.
9/ Adhere the bird branch to the small tag and then the small tag to the centre of the card.
10/ Apply pearls as in the photo and you're done!
