Gerbera Daisy Tag


The Gerbera daisy is one of my favorite flowers. It comes in so many different colors and has such a happy face!  The Gerbera Daisy rubber stamp from Red Rubber Designs shows off the perfection of this flower beautifully.
For my background I started with a manila tag then layered with an old dictionary page, papers from the Reese Patterned Cardstock Collection, distress inks, and images from the Fanciful Vintage and Vintage Background rubber stamp sets. The Gerbera has been paper pieced. I needed a small word on my little oval tag so chose the "thanks" from a stamp in the Background Soup Set.

I have embellished with corrugated paper, medical gauze colored with distress inks, a scrabble game piece, an old washer, a swivel, and a stick pin.

This is fantastic, Sarah! Love the gerbera, and you couldn't have given it a more perfect setting as far as I'm concerned: distressed text, corrugated card, and I love that paper strip echoing the colour of the petals - just a fabulous tag in every way!

Gorgeous project, Sarah. You have just the right touch with the vintage, collage look. I love to sit and drink in the lovely texture and layers of your creations!

Thank you so very much for the lovely Christmas card you sent. I displayed it in my living room and received so many comments on the beautiful handmade card!

Hope you have a happy New Year! ;D
