I started with the tag. I had seen this idea on Pinterest, but have no idea where, so I can't give any credit. I cut thin strips of patterned paper and punched a small heart out of the end of each. The strip has to be the same width as the punch to give this effect. I stamped the sentiment, sponged the edges, attached the patterned paper and threaded the ribbon through the top.
To make the card, I stamped the image randomly over the card and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I sponged over the background, but didn't wipe off the embossed parts. This gives a darker look than the paper. I had a border that I received in a prize bag that I won, so I sponged the edge of the card and placed the border over top. I attached the tag and the card was finished!
