Double Tag, Apples & Leaves, Thanks

This is the second of my apple tags I've made to join in with the newest Tag You're It challenge, and as you can see there are some similarities to my shaker tag posted yesterday.




Once again, I've used the PaperSmooches Tags 2 set.  I always cut two for my base and glue them together as I like the added durability it gives to the tags.  I've also used the Poppystamps 'An Apple a Day' set again, mounting the smaller one on foam pads for added dimension and again using my Stampin' Up Chalk Marker for the highlights.

This time around however, I cut and glued together five of the 'Thanks' sentiments instead of four as I knew that I was planning on overhanging the tag a little.  Five seems to give enough durability that I don't have to worry about the sentiment tearing or bending.

Maybe it's just me, but I so love this little Jigsaw die.  I have so many ideas on how to use it...  but like all things that depends on time!!!  It's by an online company called Crafter's Companion and is part of their Die'sire Essentials range.

The leaf stamp has been used with black ink on both the white and the red tag.  To finish off and carry across a little more of this colour I weaved together some strands of black raffia to secure the two tags together.

Just in case you haven't seen my earlier post, here's the design tag inspiration picture once again...




I'm also entering this tag into the latest Poppystamps challenge...

Hope you're having a good day :)

Donna.

    1. Thanks, Pam.
      I love this little jigsaw die, but it's far from easy to remove without tearing.
      Took me a while to figure out a good technique, but I've got it spot on now!
      Thanks for your lovely comments :)
