L is for Love - and Lace

Well it's time to post off my Alphatags for the swap this month and this is one of the months when we need to do three so as to fit all 26 into the year.  L for Love isn't the most original theme but I've used a stamp from the Chocolate Baroque Harlequin Rose set and coloured it red using Coloursoft pencils. The tag was cut using a Sizzix die from a sheet card which I printed with a love letters download (also from Chocolate Baroque).  The word was a CB stamp as was the strip of lace stamped onto vellum and white embossed before cutting out. Again apart from the printed A4 sheet, the rest of the elements on this tag started from my scraps boxes - of course I also now have a partial sheet of printed love letter to use up sometime!!


  1. This is so pretty Val and would also make a Lovely anniversary card


  2. I love the way you picked out the colour of the rose with the edging & the soft subtle creamy neutrals against the muted whites. It's really rather striking & my descriptive powers aren't up to doing this justice.
    Thank you too for your lovely comments.
