Making a beautiful tag/card

Hey guys, today I bring to you a really nice idea with a video of how to make a different type of card for those you love, it can be a tag for a present where you can write a little message or even you can write more than just a message.

As you can see in this picture,

there is more than just one type

of paper and they are all put together using a piece of ribbon.

This is an amazing DIY present that whoever receives it will be in love with it.

This was inspired by Heidi Swapp

What is what you will need to make this beautiful card

Let's start our card, I will put a video tutorial so you can watch what I did step by step.

Here I will explain step by step what I did in each of the pieces

In this picture you can see that I used a piece of cardstock cut in a tag style, I used a brush to spread some adhesive gel on the side, and once it was dry I used reactive foil to make that brushy style, then I put some embelishments at the top like a stripe and a sticker of a swan, in this part is where you can write that message or letter for that important person.

In this picture you will see that it's kind of the same as the first one but in this one I stamp some butterflies, put some glue in some parts of them so I could put some foil and give it some texture.

The same you can write some more in here.

In this picture you can see that the paper already had some letters so I just decided to emboss some of them to give it some texture and to make it look different.

In here you can write or just leave it like that.

In this picture you can see that I used the stencil from Tim Holtz to put some paste to make texture and some more shine with some foil.

Just remember that for you to be able to put foil on top of the paste, the paste should be really dry, if it is not dry it can spread all over once you run the sheet trough the laminator.

Here you can see these beautiful butterflies made with Vellum paper and clear stamps, after I made the stamping I used a glue pen from Zakura that is called Quickie Glue.

I then used the scrap of foil I had and go over the glue so it sticks on to it, doesn't it look gorgeous?
