Always and Forever

Happy Saturday!  I made this vintage style tag yesterday and some other fun projects to share with you next week.  So fun to spend some time crafting! This was going to be a card, but turned into a tag halfway through the creative process!


The paper is from My Minds Eye - Lost & Found.  I inked everything with Walnut distress ink.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from the new Always & Forever stamp set.


 I tied some twine and added a button. The hearts are from the Gypsy font cartridge.  I stretched them on my Gypsy and cut them at 0.84 by 0.95 and 0.71 by 0.80.   The tag was cut from the Tags Bags Boxes and More cartridge at 4.25 inches.


The circle with the sentiment was cut at 2 inches real dial size and the black and red layers are each about 1/8 inch larger than the one below it.  I just sized them on my Gypsy until they looked right.


I used a black pen to add some faux stitching around the circle.
