Happiness Is...a card and a layout.

Hello everyone! Julianne here today, joining you with two projects showcasing this month's theme - cards and tags. 

I decided to take a slightly different interpretation of the word "tag". Instead of creating a tag, I decided to create a layout using tags as an embellishment, and as part of the background for the layout. 

I have taken two large manilla tags, and covered them with co-ordinating paper, and used them as my frame and background for my photo. Along with lots of fussy cutting and beautiful Prima flowers, it has created a lovely soft visual effect for my layout. 

Using one of the Imaginarium Designs chipboard tags (see product list below), I have covered it with co-ordinating paper, then layered chipboard brackets, wrough iron pieces, butterflies, twine, lace, and flowers on, and around, the tag. 

I simply coated my title with Aged Gold Embossing enamel to give it an aged, romantic look. 
The Monarch Butterflies have been covered with Prima ink, then coated with Rose Embossing Enamel. I have finished them with a cut-out paper butterfly and Prima crystal, added to the centre.  

The bracket frame, wrought iron pieces, and Edward Relief corner have been coated with a metallic green Prima ink, and then softly dabbed with a Prima white ink, to soften the colour. There is a very soft shimmer to the green ink.



My "Happiness Is" card was created with a friend in mind. When opened, the card will read "being your friend" to finish the phrase. 

I can't wait to give this card to my friend! After all, who wouldn't like a card with a beautiful sparkly butterfly on the front? 

The butterflies and wrought iron have been covered with Prima ink, then coated with Tattered Angels Glimmer glaze for a very subtle sparkle. 


Thank-you for stopping by and joining me today. I hope you are having a fabulous weekend, and we look forward to seeing you again tomorrow, for more card and tag inspiration.
