Heat Embossing and Ribbling

Here I am again because I realised I hadn't entered my tag for the challenge at Craft Room Challenge. I haven't known which way is up the last half of this week while we have been sorting through things in the room where I craft and compute and I couldn't do either properly.

It so happens that since I made the tag, Artful Times has added a challenge called Let's Ribble and it is about using something corrugated.

Thanks to Mr Amazon I always seem to have all sorts of cardboard handy so I made a tag shape, peeled back some of the top paper and heat embossed the ribs in gold-also did the metal leaf emblie at the same time. The lovely heart and flower were sent to me by Janet as she made them in her melt pot. The labels were made from pictures cut from free papers in a craft magazine and fastened on with gold brads.

Love Chrissie x

  4. This is fabulous, Chrissie - a new favourite, maybe, for me! The gilding on the corrugated card looks just so cool, and I love the smaller tag with the word on and the lovely map background. Gorgeous feel to the whole thing.
    Have a lovely Sunday.

  22. Hi Chrissie, I love the embossing on the corrugated cardboard, it's really effective, and the tags look wonderful. I so want a melt pot, I love the flower and heart. Thanks for joining in with the Heat Embossing theme, and please accept my apologies for my late comment, my daughter and grandson decided to share their sickness bug with me last week.
