I've got something a little different to share with you today.
I was recently asked by a friend to make some Save the Date cards for her wedding next year. They had seen some online that they liked that were in the form of a luggage tag so they wanted to go with that design. Based on the colour scheme she gave me I made some mock-ups with different fonts and images for them to choose from.
This was the final design...
I printed the wording onto some cream cardstock before die cutting with the stitched tag die. The fonts I used were called EcuyerDAX, Elegant Typewriter and Typewriter Condensed. I think these work really well with the rose design. Then came the time consuming part. When I showed them the vintage rose design I didn't imagine how much time these would take. Of course, the roses and the leaves are separate stamps and it is also a three-step stamping set, so each tag has twelve separate stamped images on it! Unfortunately, my printer won't take very thick card so the card I used was fairly thin, so I die cut more tags and adhered them back to back (my poor Big Shot was very tired, as was my arm!). This also covered up the rough side of the die cuts and gave a better finish. I then punched the holes with a single hole punch and tied some jute twine to each one.

I would like to link these up at the following challenges:
The Challenge - Challenge #48 - Weddings
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Dies and/or Punches (used both here)
The Friday Mashup - Challenge #232 - Leaves
Crafty Catz - Challenge #299 - Let's Tag It
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
I'm now putting together some ideas for the wedding invitations using the same theme and will share these at a later date.
Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a great day whatever you're up to.
