"Dreamroad" Tag by Karen Jiles


Hi there,
I’m Karen, one of the new Craftwell Design Team Members, sharing  this “Dreamroad” tag created with the Cabbage Rose embossing folder. I love the deep impressions of this pattern.  It provides just the right depth of texture for this project. I coordinated the Cabbage Rose embossing folder with some vibrant inks, flowers, pearls and dyed ribbon. I’m adding a tutorial below:


White Cardstock
Ink Sprays
Crocheted Doily
Dreamroad Sign
Glue Gun
Mini Attacher


Step 1: Spray inks onto 8 ½ x 11 sheet of white cardstock. Let dry.

Step 2: Place full sheet of inked cardstock into Cabbage Rose embossing folder. Close the folder and insert into Cut N Boss by Craftwell machine.
Step 3: Remove the embossed paper from the machine and the embossing folder. Notice the deep impression. The ink combo helps accent the detail in the embossed pattern well.
Step 4: Trim the embossed paper down to desired tag size.  I chose 3 ¼ x 6 ¾ as the size that I wanted to work with.

Step 5: Distress the embossed tag with vintage photo ink and layer the tag onto chipboard.
Step 6: Punch hole in the top center of tag using a Cropadile and attach ½ of a crocheted doily using a mini attacher.
Step 7: Adhere resin frame and flowers to tag.
Step 8: Add pearls, Dreamroad sign, butterfly, additional flowers and dyed ribbon.
Step 9: Tap gesso over the tag with a paintbrush and highlight the flowers and ribbon with gesso. Continue embellishing as desired.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope that this tag has inspired you!
