It's day 5 and I hope you're enjoying seeing all the fabulous tags on the Facebook page and are looking forward to the rest of the week's reveals.
For this tag, I chose a file from SVGCuts' Merry and Bright SVG Kit, resizing the cardinal card pieces to fit the tag. I love how easy the this file cut and went together. Using the Nest feature in eCal 3 - you can group all the pieces of similar color in a group and not waste a bunch of paper. Fill the mat with desired colors according to the placement in the software and let the eclips do all the work.
The sentiment is print2cut print directly on the tag. For a little more detail, consider using an embossing folder.
Cardstock, patterned paper (can be digital and use the pattern fill option on the color palette)
Sizzix eclips2 and eCal3 software
unbleached cheesecloth, twine
mini black brad
glue/adhesive of choice
Open eCal 3 and open the Basic Shapes library. I used a tag I found in the library. Size as desired. Using the font tool, type your sentiment and size. Set to print2cut print. Print then cut the tag.
Open the cardinal file and size to fit on the tag. As soon as you have everything sized, separate into colored sections. Cut Emboss and shade the pieces as desired. Finish. I added a pop up under the wing for a little more dimension.
