{Neat & Tangled} Birthday Tags + Tiny Triangles


I'm up on the Neat & Tangled Blog today to sharing this birthday card using the newly-released Birthday Tags dies, as well as the Tiny Triangles die. I die cut the Tiny Triangles and used it as a stencil. After creating three colours of embossing paste on a Ranger Craft Sheet, I applied the paste to a piece of linen cardstock in three sections and set it aside to dry.


After die cutting both Birthday Tags from patterned paper and Ranger foil cardstock, I layered them with a bit of foam tape and inserted the foil letters into the negative spaces. I used two chartreuse papers from Heidi Swapp's Dreamy 6x6 paper pad and two navy papers from Echo Park's Creative Agenda 6x6 paper pad.


After the embossing paste dried, I adhered it flat to a sheet of chartreuse houndstooth paper which I then popped on to the navy stripes with foam tape. To finish, I stapled white silk ribbon at the top of the tags and tied a bow.  Then I adhered the stacked tags to the embossing paste panel with foam tape.
