STANDING TAG 'CARD'

You all seem to be loving the new printed tags we have just brought out, so I thought I would show you one I have just made into a free-standing tag 'card'.  I used one of our chipboard frames as well as a 'portrait' tag and made a little box tray to fit underneath the frame to give a little dimension.  I then stamped the flower from CI-195, coloured it, cut it out and mounted it in the decorated tray.  I painted the chipboard frame with Ranger crackle paint and coloured it in peach and aqua acrylic.  I mounted it on the tag and added a die cut leafy stem and flowers, word, and charms etc., plus a cardboard stand on the back to finish.  Hope you like it?

Love how you have used these tags. Have never used a tag that has already been coloured, so wouldn't have known where to start. Thank you for sharing. Annette
