Stampin' Dymonz Grand Give-A-Way: Dimensional Tag

It's day 9 of the Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge at the Stampin' Dymonz blog, and I must tell you that I've had just a lovely day, making this tag and cleaning house. The latter is not my forte, so having this tag to work on made it much more pleasurable! Dymonz gave us another super recipe:
  • create a dimensional tag
  • at least two elements must lift up off the page
  • the edges of the tag should be inked
  • use at least one dimensional flower
  • use at least 3 buttons
For the flower, I decided to try the glimmer mist acetate flower I saw while researching how in the heck to make an inked acetate tag for day 7. I used the same orange glimmer mist on the brad and buttons.

Although I did make the 3 sizes of tags in SCAL, I only cut the templates on the Cricut, and traced-and-cut the actual tags pieces. Of course, I did this before I decided to make the shadow-box, so the squares are actually hand-cut with a ruler, a finger-knife, and an apparently ever-improving eyeball. Go cg, Go cg! You know it's the mojo from you, my readers!

Did I already mention that I've spent the day burning plastic & bleaching the kitchen? I might be a bit loopy. :)
My husband was kind enough to take photos of this tag, including these awesome close-ups:

I sewed the buttons onto the top layer, and colored the foam tape with matching copics.
