Skater Tags

A card for a teenager today! I have two sons who have both spent quite a few hours skateboarding, so this card makes me think of them.

I decided to use red, white and blue as the colour theme and cut three tag shapes. The blue tag was stamped using one of the stamps from the Creative Expressions Anything Is Possible A5 Stamp Plate and black ink. 

The red tag was embossed using the Creative Expressions Crackle Embossing Folder. The embossing was then sanded back and blue ink blended over the tag. Metal wings from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Adornment Charms pack were glued to the corner. 

The white tag was stamped using an image from the Anything is Possible Stamp Plate and the message. Blue ink was then blended around the outside edges. 

The three tags were fixed together using a swivel clasp. The metal crown and the metal star came from the Idea-ology Adornment Charms pack.

The background was made using two shades of blue ink and the large stamp from the Creative Expressions Silhouette Skateboards A5 Stamp Plate.

Happy crafting!
