Wedding Card & Tag Set for Studio 75
Using Rosalie in the Garden Collection

Hello all!  Thanks for being here today!!  Today I have a card & tag set up on 
the Studio 75 Blog HERE.  I used the Rosalie in the Garden papers along with 
some elements from the YUMMY collection.  If you want to see the products 
click into the post link provided as I have linked up to them all there :)

The card is simply a collage of off-cut pieces inked & overlaid against
 each other.  Before I began collaging I used some modelling paste with
 a stencil to create a raised heart design which I think inked in bronze.

All that was left to do after that was add my paper elements, flowers, leaves, 
ribbon, stickers, chipboard embellishments & bark hearts.  Did I mention
that those bark hearts make me just a little bit giddy? ♥

Now onto the tag!  I opted for oversized as my work is too bold for too fiddly a format :)
To match with the card I used the same papers & the same textured hearts added
 through a stencil using modelling paste & then inked over with bronze.

Rather than add a hole, which I find can often cheapen the look of a tag, I chose rather
 to sandwich the gold lace tie between 2 sheets of patterned paper then add a lush 
satin double bow to the top centre, that is purely decorative.  {Note the lovely
Studio 75 YUMMY paper element peeking out from the bow!}

Lastly I layered up my papers as before, using a gorgeous Prima die-cut too,
 adhered everything with my glue gun, inking as necessary as I went along, 
then called it done :)  A pretty set for an upcoming wedding!
What do you think?  I hope the happy couple will treasure both!!

Please play along with our current challenge HERE.
