Valentines Corrugated Heart Tag

Valentines Day is coming up soon! I know sometimes it's a lot of hype, when you should show your love every single day to those you care about, but it's fun to make a little handmade goodness to express your love, even if it's just one day a year...;0)!!! Here is a tag I made for Ranger to display in their booth at trade shows, using yummy Glossy Accents!
I had a bunch of left over corrugated paper negative pieces cut from the Mini Hearts Movers & Shapers, so I used one on this project. I painted it with Aged Mahogany and Festive Berries Distress Paint, and filled it in with Glossy Accents directly onto my craft sheet.
I added Festive Berries Distress Glitter while the Glossy Accents was still wet, and left it to dry on my craft sheet over night. The next day, I just loosened it from the craft sheet, and the Glossy Accents was hardened and just stayed in place. COOL!
I covered a Ranger #8 Manila tag with Postale Tissue Wrap using Multi Matte Medium.
Using the Hearts Stencil from Tim Holtz, I stenciled in the hearts with Glossy Accents. This is such a versatile product. I let this dry about an hour.
I added an Idea-ology Heart Charm to the center of a Collage Key, filled this in with Glossy Accents, and sprinkled a little Festive Berries Distress Glitter into the Glossy Accents. I left this to dry along with the corrugated heart.
I stamped the wings from the Mini Ornates set from Stamper's Anonymous onto Silver Cardstock, using Jet Black Archival, and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.
After the heart stenciled Glossy Accents was dry, I inked the tag with Festive Berries and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. The Glossy Accents acts as a resist and hearts are now visible.
I added the wings to the corrugated heart, added the Idea-ology Stenciled numbers and Long Fasteners to that, and embellished the tag with an Industrious Border and Arrow, and inked the tag with Jet Black.
I tied jute around the heart, added the key with a jumpring, and secured the heart onto the tag using Black Foam Tape.
