Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted a tutorial, have been pretty hectic with uni and work so sadly, have had very little time for crafting! Finally got a little time in at the end of semester and created this card for the tutorial swap I am a part of. The theme for the month was birthdays and, being short on time, I went with a design that is quick and easy to create and can easily be changed to incorporate different colours and different Designer Series Papers.

- Poppy Parade 14.8cm x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm (card base)
- Basic White 14.3cm x 10cm (insert)
- Scrap of Basic White (large enough to cut largest tag die)
- Pattern Party DSP (2 pieces) 10cm x 4.5cm
1. Take the scrap piece of Basic White and die cut the largest of the straight edge tag dies.
2. Stamp the solid ‘BIRTHDAY’ sentiment in Poppy Parade, towards the right end of the tag. Then stamp ‘happy’ in Flirty Flamingo, positioning the stamp so that it is above and to the left of ‘BIRTHDAY’ (see pic below for indication of placement). Alternatively, you can stamp first and then die cut.
3. Take one of the DSP pieces and position the inverted V shaped die so that the tip lines up with the edge of the centre (5cm mark) of the 10cm side of the DSP. Use grid paper to help position the die to ensure that the sides are even. Use washi or repositionable tape to hold the die in place, ensuring the tape is adhered to the section of DSP that will be cut away, to avoid damaging the DSP when it is removed (see pic below). Then repeat with the second piece of DSP.
4. Adhere Basic White insert piece to the inside of your card base.
5. Adhere the two pieces of DSP to the front of your card base, one at the top, the other at the bottom, both with the point of the DSP directed towards the middle of the card.
6. Adhere the stamped tag to the centre of the card base, in between the two pieces of DSP.
7. Tie a small bow with the Flirty Flamingo Gold Metallic ribbon and adhere to the end of the tag using glue dots.
8. Place a red rhinestone on the point of each piece of DSP, then place 5 red rhinestones in various locations on the tag.
I’d love to see what you come up with using this design with different DSPs and different colour cardstock. You can see all the products used below and if there are any you need, just click on the image to be taken to my online store.
