PTI Anniversary Tags - Dawns Tag

Hey All!

It's the second day of the Anniversary Celebrations over on Nichole's blog HERE and today they have an AMAZING prize and a FAB download of tags designed by the PTI Stamp Designers.

I couldn't wait to get using the designs and spent a little time in the studio this afternoon. The first tag design I chose to work with was Dawn's. 

I just can't resist Dawn's colour combination of Summer Sunrise and Hawaiian Shores and the pattern is lovely too.

Using Dawn's project HERE as inspiration I made a card and tag ensemble. The card is a sweet 4x4" card and the tag uses the Tag Sale no.3 die.

I started by using the tag image in Photoshop to cover the front of the 4x4" card. Then I printed 4 more of the tag images individually to use for the focal points and the smaller of the butterflies.

I was inspired by Maile's card HERE for the LO and arrangement of my elements.

Above is a close up of the focal point of the card. I used the Mat Stack 2 die and cut it in half and adhered it to the edge of the card. This also helps to hide the ribbon thats adhered to the card.

I used the Limitless Layer die to cut out the mat of Summer Sunrise, I think this makes it look like a nice Sunflower! I added a butterfly cut using the Butterfly Dreams Die and stamped it with a butterfly from the set too. The smaller butterfly is punched using a Martha Stewart punch.

The sentiment on the tag is from Fillable Frames no.9

Well, I will be back soon with another project to show you using another of the tag images!

Thanks for stopping by!
