Friday Die Day

Hello friends
So today I'm cheating a little because I'm using a die I have featured before...Rose Creations
but also Grand Labels Four (coming soon to my Amazon shop).
 I love the shape of this die, it lends itself to be a perfect tag and I also used it to make my 
So this Friday Die Day is more of a tag tutorial.
 Did I say tag?? Oh it must be Friday!
I've used kraft cardstock, cut/emboss.
  I stamped the entire stamp with a script stamp, I used a Penny Black one but this one is also ideal.
Rather liberal with my embossing powder!
 Shake off the excess and heat set.
I created Rose Creations from Graphic 45 paper.
 Again rather liberal with my shimmer mist!
 Once dry I curl the petals under, using the end of slim paintbrush works well.
 Added a gemstone flourish and brass eyelet.
Little bit of lace and a 'Smile' tag - finished.
 A close up. 
There is also a You Tube video featuring this tutorial with a rather nice jolly song!

Have a wonderful weekend...I'm baking a cake this evening for tomorrow's Christmas Tags class,
I'm going to go with a fruit cake this week, I would rather like the addition of a thick layer
of marzipan and icing but I had better wait until nearer Christmas!
Take care.
