Co-ordinations Blog Hop

Co-Ordinations Blog Hop 

Today I am sharing a card and tag made with Co-Ordinations cardstock an Couture Creations Dies and folder. I love to use the Doily dies to create lacy edges. This is easily done by 
placing the die and cardstock half off the C plate, so that only one side cuts as pictured below 
step 1

step 2

step 3
This is a nifty way of making slotted cards too 

Next is a cute tag that you can attach to a parcel or card front for someone special.

To create the blue flower, cut the largest die from blue cardstock, then cut into a spiral, curl spiral up and glue in place. Spray with adhesive and sprinkle with white glitter.

  2. Beautiful card and tag Sue!!!

    LOVE how you have created the doily tab and I'm sending thanks your way for showing me how as I look forward to trying it too :)

  3. I really love your embossed card and tag today. I had no idea that the doily die could be offset to not cut on one side! Brilliant! I'm glad you showed us that! So thank you!

  4. Great Ideas :) love the tag too :)
