img_7237_edited-2

I die cut the XOXO sentiment out of the tag using the CUTplorations XOXO Word Die.

Then I sponged R.O.Y.G. & blue inks onto another, white “XOXO”

preview-XOXO-CUTplorations

 and inlaid the inked up die cut back into the tag.  I added some bits of mixed media pieces to the edges of the tag and then dry embossed the entire tag.

I added a small hole with a circle hole punch and attached my raspberry tinted twine.

I had a lot of fun making this tag and I hope that you enjoyed seeing it. Please make sure you stop by and check out the STAMPlorations Girls’ superb creations!
