Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Yes Friday Die Day - wow they come around so quickly!
As requested by my Facebook followers, I'm featuring Build A Tag One.
This is one of the new Celebra'tions dies.
It has two different edged tags with two inset pieces that can be interchangeable
in both border shapes. As a singular border shape, it creates a shaped silhouette.
When the border die is nested with the inset piece, it makes a beautiful embellishment.
Used alone, the inset piece creates a wonderful embedded pattern. 
This is how they look cut/embossed from kraft card.
The sizes are:
Tag Bracket Inset – 1⅞ x 2⅞”
Tag – 2 x 3”
Tag Chevron Inset – 1⅞ x 2⅞”
Mini Scalloped Tag – 2⅛ x 3⅛”
I really like the bracket feature, I've cut a piece of Graphic 45 - Botanical Tea paper
(same papers as yesterday's card) and inserted it between the brackets.

Now my camera memory card had a little fit at this point so jumping to the finished card!
You can see I started with a kraft card base, the embossed pale green background is created
I then layered up the tags, bit of twine, stamped oval.
The emboss detail of the chevron tag inset is deep and effective.
The flower is from Celebra'tions Enhanced Pennant and I found the brad in my odd box!
Tags, card...ticks all my boxes...just missing a butterfly really!
Have a wonderful weekend.
I'm back tomorrow.

What a lovely, pretty card. I love the way you give us ideas using dies-I need all the help I can get at the minute. I have a couple of dies that I'm struggling to use-might suggest them for a future F.D.D.


Chris said...

Hi Christine, I love these tags and the paper, and have just had time to order both before I get ready for work. You are definitely a bad influence. Have a Good Friday

Hi Christine

I was not too sure about these tag dies when i first saw them to be honest and i so love my tags , however you always show ideas on how they should be used and bring them to life , sometimes we just do not see what the die can turn into ,so yes another item goes on my wish list .

Have a lovely day

Morning Christine, I love these tags !! especially the bracket one, which could be used to frame piccies on a scrapbook layout. A beautiful card.
I can't believe how swiftly these weeks are going by, s c a r y !!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Sandra said...

Good morning Christine,
What a fabulous Die, I always think that I can do without them, then you demo them, bring them to life and then I need them!
Seriously though they look so useful, I have tried cutting my own tags using the guillotine but never managed to get the top part even ! Here is the solution, could be used for tags on gifts or as you have perfectly demonstrated they can be used to make a gorgeous card!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Sandra xx

Hello Christine. Oh my these tags are clever. I am so glad you have shown us how they can be used as otherwise they are not something that I felt I needed - but now... Lovely card but it really does need a butterfly. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine

I'm so pleased that you featured these dies. I was looking at them the other day and wondering what they were like. They look really lovely and your card is beautiful as always too.

Have a lovely weekend.

I like the dies Christine, but I wish it had been bigger. How large are the ones you decorate on their own?

CraftyJo said...

Very nice, thanks for this. I don't think I'd have given these dies a second glance but now that you've shown how good they look.... ;)

LoraineC said...
