I always have trouble thinking of things to go on tags…I always question what the tags are for. I guess nothing, really. So this card is just for my personal collection.
I saw a glassine envelope project in an issue of Somerset a while ago and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some. Rather than hunt week after week at the flea market for vintage glassine, I bought new envelopes and discovered that they age beautifully with distress ink. I attempted to age them with acrylic, but the water was too much for the envelopes, causing it to warp and buckle.
This envelope is colored with Tattered Rose distress ink. I also used Tattered Rose to dye the ribbon on the tags to match. I spend the extra money to buy satin double faced ribbon so that it is nice on both sides. Throw on some machine stitching, die cuts from my Revolution, a little justjohanna, dymo labels and you’re good to go. I really enjoy the “dirtying up” process…I love to include the hand drawn pencil and pen doodling on all my projects. It’s part of the Julification process.
Thank you for coming by today!
