A Heartfelt Thank You

Making your own perfectly coordinated tags just got a little bit easier thanks to the new Use the Fuse Creativity System®! You can personalize your tags any which way you please by combining the die cut with an embossing plate and kick it up another notch with ink that coordinates beautifully!

With all those options you can create unique combinations each and every time you use your Fuse. Let’s take a look at one of these tags in action on a greeting card project.

To create this card, you’ll first cut light blue cardstock to 7” x 10”. Fold in half and crease the folding creating a 5” x 7” card base. You can get a crisp crease by using a bone-folding tool. Place the folded card horizontally on your work surface so the fold is at the top.

To build the background of the card, first punch a 1” x 7” long strip of light pink paper using the Scalloped Sentiment Border Punch.

Then, cut a section of coordinating patterned paper with thick stripes to 2” x 7”. Adhere border strip to one edge of your patterned paper and adhere to your card front approximately ¾” from the bottom edge. Adhere 1 ½” x 7” deep plum patterned paper strip directly above. Add a sentiment sticker to the lower edge of the card.

Then, using your Fuse and tag embellishment, create a tag with cream cardstock and raspberry ink.

Punch 3 flowers from raspberry colored cardstock using your Oopsie Daisy Squeeze Punch.

Use a paper-piercing tool to poke a hole through the center of each flower. Stack the flowers and push a fabric-covered brad through the holes. Adjust the punched pieces to create a fuller looking flower before opening the brad prongs to secure the flowers in place.
