{Tue} Tag: Nautical Tag Card

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

I made a card...for my father-in-law:

I have been wanting to use Gelatos, but with other "toys" to play with, I haven't bought any...yet...
So, I "borrowed" my kids' Gel Sticks from Faber-Castell to play! =)

How-To (Tag):
1. Cut a tag, punch a hole on top using Crop-a-dile and ink the edges.
2. Stamp image of choice for the background.
3. Add washi tape on the right side of tag. Set aside.
4. Tear a piece of cardstock to go on the tag, as shown in photo, and stamp script image.
5. Using a stencil, spread glitter glue with a brush or palette knife. Let dry.
6. After it's dry, apply blue gel stick and blend it with water and a brush. Set aside.
7. Stamp seashells and seahorse and heat emboss them in white. Fussy cut and color them with Copic Markers. Set aside.
8. Die cut leaves, outline them with Copic marker.
9. Assemble the tag with the stamped images, die-cuts and dimensional sticker, as shown.
10. Use foam tape for the seahorse and add fibers to tag.

How-To Card:
1. Cut the card using Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.
2. Trim a cardstock panel for the back of the card front and adhered it.
3. Color the front with gel sticks of your choice.
4. Blend each color with brush and water for a watercolor look.
5. Apply more gel sticks on card for added texture.
6. Adhere the tag using foam tape...and ta-da!
