MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints--Birthday Tags

This month, the design team was challenged to craft BIRTHDAY TAGS  to celebrate
the occasion we all love to craft for with designs that will be as cherished as the gift itself.

I was planning to make cute tags, but decided to go floral. I love Funky Flowers
and chose the largest pointed petal bloom which is my fave.

I gold embossed the flowers and leaves  on watercolor card stock and ink distressed
with Distress and MFT dye inks, then cut them out with the coordinating dies.
Whimsical Woodgrain was stamped on Latté card stock with Natural ink and die cut
with one of the tags from Tag Builder BP 5, and also the little notch reinforcement.

The sentiments are from Sweet Succulents, and were gold embossed on Black
Licorice card stock and cut with the banner die. The flowers, leaves, and sentiments
were adhered to the tags with dimensional adhesive and finished off with twine.

design team members took on this month's  challenge.
