Wonderful Tag by Nicolle Kramer using Prima Engraver Collection


Prima Engraver Collection
Wonderful Tag
Designed by: Nicolle Kramer



Hello Friends! Today on this Memorial Day I am sharing a quick project. I made a tag using the Engraver Collection. Below is a picture of all the goodies I created with this month.

 I hope everyone is relaxing and spending time with their loved ones. Every year we have a barbecue with the immediate family. This year I will be remembering the veterans in my family. My dad and both grandfather's served in the Army and fought in the Vietnam, World War II and Korean wars. These men are my true Heroes. Last year after we made the hard decision of taking my dad of life support and as he lie in the hospital bed weak, I was lucky enough to thank him for everything he did for us through the years. I even had the chance to tell him he was my Hero. Although he was very week and couldn't speak he was able to nod and was very coherent. It was the hardest thing to do to watch your parent slowly die right in front of your eyes. I wish things could have been a little more humane. Even though they said they would keep him as comfortable as possible I just don't know if the morphine did that. The doctor's think part of the reason his heart was so damaged (he was 63) is because he was exposed to Agent Orange in the Vietnam war.  I am so thankful for all the men and women in uniform... past, present and future who keep this country free. 


I layered a lot of different elements on this tag from the Engraver collection. It was the first time I have ever made a double bow.



 Here's a close up of the center of the tag. I used chipboard elements, decorative frame and flowers in a cluster. I just loved working with the little metal frames.


I mist the canvas resist bird, fussy cut a flower from one of the papers and added chipboard elements to make leaves. I also added a bit of natural hemp for added interest.


Thanks for stopping by! You can find all these products in The Hen's Den store. Have a relaxing Holiday.
