This is for the tag challenge at the KardKrazy blog. The challenge was to use a bit of fabric on a tag. Since I wanted to create a Valentine tag anyway, this worked out perfectly.
I started off by scanning a page from a vintage French dictionary that I recently thrifted from the library used bookstore. I scanned the page at 200% so I could use it at various sizes later on. I printed this on cardstock and then die cut it using the Sizzix Tag and Bookplate die.
I inked the edges with Worn Lipstick, Distress ink. I stamped the saying on a ticket and attached it to the tag. I added some die cut leaves that I had from a previous project.
Next, I hand-cut and hand-sewed the heart, adding the lace as I went. This was the most difficult part. I lightly stuffed the heart before closing the seam. I attached it to the tag with hot glue.
As a final touch I added some die cut flowers also from the same previous project.
