LOVE-ly Lady Tag

Here's a special card for you, lovely lady!
Today's post is a tag/card made from the New Prima products I purchased from Paper Wishes/HOTP.

The tag is a large tag made by Prima, it's measurements are 3 3/4" x 8 1/2" and it is a heavy weight stock preprinted with an antique writing lightly in the background.  They come in a pad of 48 tags for about $7.00.  The back side is white, so you can decorate it also, or leave it plain for writing a special message.  It then fits easily in a #10 business size envelope for mailing.

The tall Doll stamp, also from Prima, is designed by Julie Nutting. They are just labeled as Doll and then a number. The companies where I have seen them, have them numbered #1, #2, #3, and so forth, but not every company's numbers are the same, so you have to remember which one you saw where.  There are two styles I have seen so far, a younger little girl, and the older looking tween or young woman. Then each doll has different poses and dresses. I stamped the doll on the tag with memento black ink and then colored it in with my copic markers.  I didn't really like the way the dress looked when I finished, so I paper pieced a dress to pop on top with foam dots. That gave the image some dimension anyway. I then stamped and punched a few various flowers and leaves from stock and assembled them together to form the floral arrangement in the bottom left corner. I used Ranger Glossy Accents to glue the flowers together, and Liquid Pearls to dot the centers. The sentiment "love" was colored with copics and then heat embossed with Vintage Gold embossing powder from Globecraft & Piccolo, and adhered with Glossy Accents. To finish off, I tied a bow at the top with a thin brown plaid ribbon.

A handwritten message on the back, and then pop it into an envelope and off it goes to a dear friend who is celebrating a birthday this month. I hope you have enjoyed this tag, and hope you will check back in a few days for more stamping and paper fun. See you soon.
