Belated birthday watercolor tag shaped card tutorial

   Hello.  Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a belated birthday watercolor tag shaped card.  After a bit of watercoloring, I made a shaped card base to match.


I didn't forget your birthday, I'm just extending the celebration.

This watercolor tag shaped card is perfect for those times when belated wishes are in order.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for making this watercolor tag shaped card.  To begin, die-cut, stamp and watercolor the top large tag panel layer from watercolor card stock. 
Then, prepare the shaped card base, from a 4 1/4" x 11" sheet of heavy card stock.
To make the tag shaped card base, align the bottom of the largest tag die towards the bottom of the cardstock sheet.  Place the top cutting plate just shy of the narrow top end of the tag die.  This keeps the top from cutting away.  Then, position the die once more lining up and facing the narrow uncut tag end.  Again, keep the top of the die free from the top cutting plate.  Everything should be cut except the center of the two tag cuts.  Score the top of the tag and fold evenly to make a tag shaped card.  
Finally, layer the top panel and embellish it to finish.
