We love this way for how to make a layered tag with a peek-a-boo top!

Today we’ve got a fun way for how to make a layered tag using our tag die cuts with a special, die cut peek-a-boo layer on top. This is such an easy and fun way to add tons of detail and visual interest to a shape and you can swap out the tag shape and the top layer to make tags for any occasion. And remember, pop a tag on a card base and you have an instant handmade greeting card. We love projects that can be this flexible! Let’s get right into how Allie made this for us.

First, Allie die cut two tag shapes from white card stock using our Nested Tag Stitched set and cut one again with the Small Flowers #3 die. Then she blended some shades from Color Fuse Ink Sets #2 and #5 over the other tag in beautiful, warm gradient shading.

Allie then used our Mixed Flower Stack die to cut some white card stock scraps.  While she had out her die cutting machine she also used our Branches and Leaves die to cut some little leaf stems from more white card stock scraps.

Using Citrus and Fuchsia Color Fuse Inks from Sets #2 and #5, respectively, she colored up these blossoms to create alternating colored petals, some with added edging in the alternate colors. When she was done coloring, she layered her flower die cuts together and added ink here and there as she liked, adhering her petals together with liquid glue. When this gorgeous ombre-ish flower was all assembled, she splattered some white ink over it and added a Nuvo drop in the center. She also used some Melon and Fern Color Fuse ink from Set #11 to color some of her little leaves.

Now she layered her two tags together with her die cut layer on top and to echo her white splatter over her petals, added a white Nuvo drop in the center of each die cut flower opening in that top tag.

Allie stamped her sentiment from  our Kittie Says Phrases #1, trimmed it closely and layered it over an also closely trimmed layer of complementary card stock. She added this with foam tape, tucked a few of her little leaf stems behind the blossom and finished off this little charmer with a few sequins.
