Start out by cutting a card base from the kraft cardstock. I made mine 10 centimetres wide, that is about 4 inches. Also cut a strip of patterned paper, make it a bit shorter than the card. I used one of the patterned papers from the London add on. Also cut another strip of a contrasting paper, making it thinner and longer, so that it extends outside the edges of the card.
Then cut a strip of vellum, I used the vellum in the London add on. Make it a bit wider than the first (the wide) strip of patterned paper. Punch or die cut three holes into the vellum. This was actually a leftover piece I had, from die cutting circles for one of my layouts.
Then make the thin, long strip of patterned paper go through the holes in the vellum.
Glue, staple or stitch the three papers together. I used my sewing machine to stitch one line, along the chevron paper. I only wanted to attach the papers in the middle like this, because I don’t want them to be completely flat. This way the edges will lift some and give life to the design.
Then take one of the wooden tags from the Calcutta add on and write someting on it, using letter stickers. At this point, when I had added the black letter stickers spelling out “tack”, which means “thank you” in Swedish, I felt that I needed something else in black, and I cut another piece of patterned paper and layered it under the others.
Add some twine to the tag and glue everything down – finished!
I love the effect of the vellum.
Thank you for checking in and I hope you enjoyed this little make & take. Have a wonderful day!
