Authentique and Petaloo: Christmas Card and a Tag

Hi there, I am here again with a couple of projects for today using our gorgeous Glistening collection and some pretty Petaloo flowers.

My first project is a shaped card.  It's no secret how much I love shaped cards, so I started my card die cutting my card base using Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Die-Nesting Lace Doilies out of our "twinkle" paper. Than I cut a circle shape fitting in my doily card base out of our "dazzle" paper.  Added a pretty lace border using a Cheery Lynn die called Lace Light Deco Border and tied a seam binding ribbon around it.
Next I added my tag with the sentiment which came from the "components" die cut paper accents, which I tied a jute around.  And as a final touch I added the pretty Tea Stained Cream Dahlias and Darjeeling Tea Stained Petites and added a Cherry Lynn leaf die cut called The Leaf.


Here is another look of the card.


My next project is a tag.  And I added some mixed media with this by using stencils as well.  For my tag I used a purchased tag and covered it with the "dazzle" paper.  Using Dylusion Diamond of a border stencil, I laid it on top of my tag and added light molding paste on top of it.  Removed my stencil dried it and added light blue chalk in on top of the dried raised images, which matched the colors from the collection perfect.  


Next I took the Petaloo Fancy Corners chipboard and covered it with light blue chalk ink and added my Petaloo flowers on top of it.


Next I took a couple of the die cut accents from the "components" die cut sheet, added some twine to one of them and buttons to the other and adhered them to the tag. I added another flower and also a pretty Petaloo lace trim in aqua color to match my colors once again.


Here is another angle of the finished tag.
