Fancy Bird Tag

Hello everyone,

Another project for the Wild Orchid Crafts blog –  I decided on a tag for a gift box. The rich, warm colours of the roses and cherry blossoms from my WOC guest designer kit and the ruffled gold lurex netting worked wonderfully together – love the way this turned out on the tag. I bought the gold netting from a local haberdashery and was surprised with the effects one can achieve with this. The sentiment stamp is from Crafty Secrets “Garden Girls” clear stamp set and the little birdie from Inkadinkado “Birds Galore” clear stamp set. Hope you like the tag.

I entered the tag in the following challenges:

The lovely gold netting, roses, and silk leaves

The little bird sitting on a nest of natural raffia

I used the following to created the tag:

  • Brown cardstock
  • 7Gypsies designer paper
  • Roses and cherry blossoms available from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Silk leaves
  • Crafty Secrets sentiment stamp from “Garden Girls” clear stamp set
  • Inkadinkadoo “Birds Galore” clear stamp set for bird
  • Stickles “Golden Rod”
  • Lurex gold netting
  • Lace available from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Tim Holtz distress inks “Vintage photo”
  • Raffia
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Labels Two”
  • Satin ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments.  I wish you a blessed day.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia.

    This tag is stunning! The warm, rich colors are beautiful, the music score sheet for the background is perfect for this, and I love how you used the bird and flowers. This is so beautiful. One of the prettiest tags I’ve seen in a long time! Best, Curt
