Floating Vellum Panel featuring Crafty Meraki’s Rainbow Reverie & Rainbow Canopy

Hello friends! Crafty Meraki has introduced five new patterned papers. I have two fun and whimsical birthday gift tags with floating vellum panels featuring two of them; Rainbow Reverie and Rainbow Canopy. These papers are beautiful; one in soft pastels and the other in jewel tones. Each pack has 12 designs on 24 double-sided sheets. Be sure to check out the rest of the collection; Retro Blooms, Watercolor Whimsy and Color Cascade.

  • A sheet from Rainbow Reverie and Rainbow Canopy and white card stock were cut with the tag die from Love Slimline Tag and adhered back to back.

  • The BIRTHDAY sentiment from Birthday Slimline Tag was cut five times for each tag! Four from white sheet foam and the fifth from the patterned paper. Two foam die cuts were adhered together twice. The patterned paper die cut was adhered to one of them.

  • The tag die from Love Slimline Tag was used to cut vellum paper.

  • The vellum tag was sandwiched between the two double stacked, foam sentiments. Liquid adhesive will cause the vellum to ripple so Tombow liquid adhesive was used. It was applied to the foam die cuts and left to dry completely. When dry, this adhesive is tacky and repositionable. The vellum tag was placed on top of one of the stacked sentiments and then the second one with the patterned paper die cut was adhered on top of the tag. The sentiments are easily aligned.

  • The secondary die cut sentiments from Birthday Slimline Tag were cut three times, stacked and adhered to the main sentiments.

  • Foam squares were placed on the top corner of the patterned paper tag where the rose would be added. Regular liquid adhesive was applied to the foam sentiment on back of the vellum tag and it was aligned to the patterned paper tag and adhered.

  • Ribbon was tied on to tag.

  • The rose from Artisan Flora Dies Rose was die cut from both coloured card stock and the patterned paper. The petal layers were alternated between the two and adhered together with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares. The leaves were cut from white card stock and adhered to the back of the rose.

  • The rose was adhered to the top of the vellum tag with glue dots.

  • Clear crystals were used to add some embellishment. They were also adhered with glue dots.
