Merci Tag – Texture with Adhesive Sheets and Die Cuts

Happy May Day! It’s Beth here with a textured tag tutorial that’s perfect for Spring!

Beth Pingry Merci Tag with texture tutorialHere’s a quick tutorial – it’s so easy!

BethPingryMerciTag2First die cut desired shapes from cardstock or chipboard. I used chipboard then added some paint on top to neutralize the darker color.  (This isn’t the order I did it, so follow the written instructions – I always figure out an easier way while I’m doing it the hard way!)

Trim the die cuts and adhere them to the tag, I used E-Z Squares®. Cover the tag with an Adhesive Sheet and burnish it down with your fingers.  Remove the liner to reveal the adhesive covered tag, then crumple up a sheet of tissue paper and lay it onto the tag. The more wrinkles, the more texture!BethPingryMerciTag4Next, burnish the tissue into the adhesive, so that the entire tag is covered, then trim or tear the excess. I placed the die cuts slightly off the edges and used scissors to trim.

Now for the messy, I mean fun part – color! I spritzed 4 different colors onto the tag, making sure that I covered the tag. Impatient like me? Go ahead and use a heat gun to dry it quickly. BethPingryMerciTag5Tip: I keep the yellow liners from Adhesive Sheets for other projects!

Here I moved some 3D Foam Hearts and a 3D Foam Butterfly to an extra liner, removed the top sheets and the centers of the butterfly, then added pink glitter.

BethPingryMerciTag6I removed the rest of the butterfly and added blue glitter.

BethPingryMerciTag7Next stamp a sentiment, add the 3D Foam Hearts and 3D Foam Butterfly, a ribbon and some hand drawn lines and bubbles. I inked the edges with green chalk ink.  The sky’s the limit here on embellishing.
