For those of you who read the Craft Stamper mag you will recognise this immediately. I have used Helen Chilten’s article in the Craft stamper Nov. 2011 issue. I did vary a few of the stamps and as I didn’t have pearls I used little glass beads instead.
The top tag has an image of a woman painting and a caption up the left side saying ‘the art of painting’ which is appropriate for my mum as she is a very good artist.
You maybe can’t tell from my photo but the top tag has a portion cut away and the tag is then layered onto another with 3D pads. Mine is not quite as 3D as Helen’s. I added another shabby tag with ribbon so it would still open like a greetings card.
