Place cream card stock into punch and press. This punch is easy to work and gives your tag a professional look.

Stamping and Blending

  1. Ink Wreath and stamp on tag (using only 1⁄2 the stamp).

  2. Stamp To and From stamp (or sentiment of your choice).

  3. Begin to distress your tag by starting off the paper with the block lifted on an angle and brush the paper with the belly of the pad. Use a soft touch and a circular pattern. Turn your paper as you color. It’s best to PULL the pad TOWARD you for better control…practice a bit and you will get NO edge marks…too cool.

Embellishments and WOW!

  1. The rest is easy! Add rhinestones to berries (I always use a little drop of Glossy accents to hold my jewels on. Sometimes the self-adhesive ones do not adhere well to the inks)

  2. Thread ribbon thru top of tag and WOW!
