3 Layered Tags – Love Notes

By Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta


“Hi everyone!

“Today i have 3 tags made with many layers of die cuts flowers and embellishments, using the beautiful Love Notes Collectors Edition collection!! In this month when the love is the air, what and amazing idea to create something beautiful to give to your special Valentine!! Combine this tags with a box of chocolates, some tickets to a special event or even with some beautiful flowers, you can’t go wrong with this romantic tags. Even if you are single, you can have fun taking time to yourself and enjoy the process!! 


I did prepared a video tutorial that you can see how i made my tags, start to finish, three tags! It’s at the end of this blog post, but first let’s take a look at some photos!”


“TIP 1: the Best way to create a project with many layers is thinking of it from the bottom to the top, think of what you want and can add in each layer. Per example in my project i have the black tag on the bottom, than paper from the collection, than another layer of paper, fussy cutted elements, embellishments and or chipboards and flowers on top or in the middle, and don’t forget to have space for the sentiment”





“TIP 2: For the back of a project like this one with many layers, try to use papers that don’t have a very “busy” design so it will not get confused when you add the other layers on top. And try to add the elements taking care of each layer so you cover some part but leave some areas clear!!”





Usually, all collections have flowers so you can fussy cut them and add as a layer on your project. Other elements like sentiments and postage stamps are always present too on graphic 45 collection, just add some, here and there with some 3D foam tape to add dimension and interest.







I made this wings with graphic 45 dies, look how beautiful and dramatic this wings can be, and can add so much texture and shine to your project, just choose the color that match your project and be creative with your stash!!



I hope you find this inspiring. Enjoy the full tutorial I prepare to you and don’t forget to share with us your creations!!
