Good Morning DiesRUs fans as well as Karen Burniston fans!  My sweet daughter gave me a gift certificate for Mother’s Day and Karen’s: 1023 – Tag Book was one of the new toys I chose with her gift!

This is my first “tag book” using Karen’s die set for this so fun and versatile set!  However, this is not the first time I made a “tag book”.  A couple of yrs. or more ago Karen came up with a way to make this very tag book but you needed several of her die sets and then also need to manually make a couple of other elements and then find other dies from other sets to decorate it!  Whew!  However, I soooo loved the results that all those steps made, so I gave it a try but I never made another one:

Cascading tag card Steampunk 2

When this publishes, I’m going to ask Karen if she remembers this.  I can tell you this set makes it a lot easier to make such a fun card to receive.  You can’t think of an occasion that this die set couldn’t be used for and it comes with 17 dies!   I made today’s project for my grand daughter’s birthday.

The Steps:

Step 1:  Once you decide what theme you want this card to have then I suggest that you watch the assembly video so you can choose which paper to use when you start cutting.  Remember, there are 17 dies!  And also, at the end of the video she will show what the designers made with this set.  Here’s the link:  Karen’s Tag Book Assembly

Step 2:  I cut everything accept the “Shells and other deco pcs.” twice because I wasn’t sure what I wanted in which of the coordinated designer cardstock.  I was working with a paper pack from Graphic 45 called “By the Sea” Collection.

Step 3:  I also used Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1125 – Ropes 1

                                                                          

I cut 3 of the wavy chain ones and sort of weaved them in and over the little frames on the tags:

Step 4:  Using Elizabeth Craft Designs – 1147 Shells Small

The small shells are not available right now at DiesRUs but the “Large Shells” are and would also fit this die set.  1146 – Shells Large

                                                                The little Pail and Shovel was in my stash from an earlier Karen Burniston Pop Up set.

Step 5:  The front of my card was made by fussy cutting a couple of elements from the same Graphic 45 paper pack:
