Front cover. The papers in this pack are just gorgeous! They are from the Mariposa pack from Die cuts with a view. All the edges of the papers, tp rolls and tags are inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. A book ring holds it together with ribbon and lace tied on.
The front also has a white feather to help soften the edge a little card stamped with gold pigment ink that says, "Gentle thoughts to thee from me".
I stuck a handmade stick pin behind the card.
This page has a folded tag, all edges have been inked. A small tag added across the top and a bronze butterfly brad added.
I cut a piece out and attached across the bottom to make a pocket and then punched out circles and added them across the top.
I cut out a vellum word saying, "with much love" and adhered it across the bottom and added a brad from Stampin' Up's Antique brad collection.
The background paper is just gorgeous, but I decided to add a little border and slip a tag under it.
Again the paper was just to pretty to embellish. All I added was the butterfly I cut out and bent the wings forward.
To this page I added a dimensional piece to the bottom left that I inked the edges. I glued a piece of black ribbon on the diagonal and inserted two tags that are held together with a black brad.
I made an envelope pocket and covered it
with the moth paper. I made a tag and distressed the edges added a pearl at the top stamped thinking of you in gold ink and added black ribbon.
Front of tags. All edges are inked holes punched in the tops and colored fiber tied on.
I used green, white and brown fun fur fibers.
I didn't realize these would turn out so dark.
Back of the tags. They are edged with Tim Holtz
Distress Ink, Vintage Photo. The journaling lines and butterflies are stamped in Gold pigment ink.
Thank you for looking.
These are the tree cards we will be creating at this months "Once-a-Month" card class.
