Hey Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. It's hard to believe that Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it's time to start thinking about creating tags and cards. For today's post, I've created this Adore Tag which is perfect to give to your loved ones. You'll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
To start, you'll need a Chipboard Tag. Choose two pieces of Valentine's Day themed patterned paper. Trace the tag around one of the pieces of paper and cut the tag out. Cut the second piece of patterned paper to 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". Distress the edges of each patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the patterned paper pieces and chipboard tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Apply two coats of Candied Apple Distress Paint to the Adore Swirl Word. Once the paint has dried, rub Black Soot Distress Crayon around the edges of the word.
Choose one Med Key Hole. Apply Emboss It Ink to the key hole. Sprinkle Hammered Metal Embossing Powder overtop of the key hole. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.
The last piece that you'll need is the Flourish Heart. Apply Emboss It Ink to the heart. Sprinkle Sweet Valentine Embossing Powder overtop of the heart. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.
Cut a piece of lace that measures 3".
You'll need four 10mm light pink roses, four small pink flowers, four 15mm white roses and four 10mm red roses.
Adhere the tag patterned paper piece to the chipboard tag. Adhere the 2 3/4" patterned paper piece to the patterned paper tag.
Punch a hole at the top of the tag. Place the Heart Stencil over top of the tag. Using a palette knife, spread Transparent Matte Texture Paste through the stencil randomly in the top left and bottom right corners of the patterned paper tag.
Once the texture paste is dry, adhere the lace 1 5/8" from the bottom of the tag. Foam square the flourish heart to the middle of the tag.
Adhere the key hole to the middle of the flourish heart. Adhere the Adore word overtop of the key hole.
On the top left hand side of the heart, adhere two red roses, two pink flowers, two pink roses and on white rose. On the bottom right hand side of the heart adhere three white roses, two pink roses, two pink flowers and two red roses.
To finish off the tag, tie a piece of red ribbon through the top of the tag.
Here are a few closeup photos of the finished tag.
And here's the finished Adore Tag.
