Kraftyhands Vintage Motors Tag

Kraftyhands will be releasing their new Vintage Motors double CD set very soon, and us lucky girls on the Kraftyhands Design Team have the opportunity to have a play and make some samples for you to see ready for when its available in the online shop.

As well as making some cards, we were set a challenge to make a tag for the Kraftyhands Blog, so here is mine, along with some details of how I made it.

Getting all my bits n bobs together I realised that I didn't have any tags. No tags in a crafty stash - how can that be I hear you ask? Am I the only crafter in the land that a) has no tags and b) has never made a tag before???!!!  Not one to be put off, I cut a piece of card 10cm x 18cm and marked in pencil 2cm in from each side on one end, and then 5cm down from this edge, joined the marks,  cut the triangular pieces off and punched a hole in the top.

I then printed some sheets off from the CD, printing them out 2 to an A4 page to reduce the size to be suitable for a tag.

I covered the tag with the map background paper, cut out one of the main car images, inked it with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and added that to the tag.

I tore some of the car parts background papers in two different colours, inked the torn edges and added them over the car image, trimmed and inked up all round the tag with the Distress Ink.

I cut out one of the car decoupage layers and put that on top of the tag with some dimensional glue.

I then added some torn and inked map background paper  and an inked Happy Birthday sentiment. And with a piece of ribbon, there you have it one tag!

Materials Used:
Kraftyhands - Vintage Motors double CD
Craftwork Cards - A4 white card, ribbon
Ranger Distress Ink - Rusty Hinge
