Yesterday I was playing about with this blue tag and Cosmic Shimmer Mists: Candy Pink and Angel Mist. Having changed the colour and added a bit of shine, I used a Airondack Demin ink on stamps from Elusive Images and Rubber Stamped as a contrast. I decided that the tag was too big, so I trimmed it down, but it was still not very inspiring. After looking at several dies I was unable to find a die that fitted over the pattern, so.....
using one of the labels from the Rectangles Large and Small set,
I taped the die across the top of the image and made a partial cut
then did the same to the other end
Again only cutting the edge. Now using a ruler, trimmed the straight sides.
You will not be able to emboss this new shape with the tan mat, but.....
with a bit of patience you can do it with an embossing tool!
I have not quite finished my card and will have to show you another time, but for now I have to abandon my craft desk for another matter. Shame, I was enjoying myself, still it will be nice to have something to come back to!
