Bastel-Traum Guest Designer Easter Tag





I was asked to be a guest designer at the Bastel-Traum challenge when my Happy Healing with Boo-Boo Birdie card was chosen as a winner. I had such fun chats with one of the designers, Ute, and I've made a TAG that will decorate an Easter basket this weekend.


My tag started with a heavy piece of My Mind's Eye double-sided patterned cardstock. The design was cut out using CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy. It has quite a few different tag shapes. The next top layer of the tag was cut 1/2" smaller out of Kraft cardstock. Then it was embossed with a basket weave embossing folder. I also cut the white scallop shape with that cartridge then embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The image and sentiment are from the Doodle Pantry set, Spring Trimmings. I used the uncolored image of the Easter eggs in a basket and colored the image using Copic markers similar to the way Laurie colored hers. I decorated the tag with two Prima flowers and a butterfly that had one wing colored. I used a Copic marker to color the other wing.

I'm sharing this tag with the following challenges:
