Card and Tag by Brenda Caldow

Hello Craft friends and welcome to Meg's Garden Blog and my post using the very beautiful Sherlock Vol II patterned papers. Wow are these papers stunning, so masculine. When I was creating my card and tag I had my Grandfather in mind. He was a Gardner and for some reason the colours and pictures on these papers reminded me of him.  
Now for my card first....

My tag and clock are fussy cut from the patterned papers. On my back ground on top of the patterned paper I used some Sand Mesh Ribbon, then placed a strip of black cardstock which I used a gold pen and placed dots around the edge. 
Over this I used a a Prima Vintage Label that I molded from the beautiful moulds that are available in the Meg's Garden Store. There are different designs and I love them all. I have used the paper clay that Meg's Garden Store also have to go with them. They are so easy to make. With this one I decided to use Jet Black Archival Ink on it and then placed Kaisercraft  mini Alpha stickers on the label.
A couple of pieces of Dusty Attic Chippie and then some Black Raffia tied through the tag and it was finished. Ready for the envelope and a special male friend. 

Now it's time for my tag.....

Again the beautiful masculine Sherlock Volume II patterned papers, fussy cutting from them and the Black Raffia. The other items I used for this tag are Vintage Mechanical Clock and a china bead. 
Both the card and tag are simple but look so nice and the colours are perfect for a guy. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card and tag. Please keep scrolling down through the blog and see the other beautiful creations by the design team.

Happy Crafting friends. xxx
