Maybe it’s this amazing weather we’ve been having in Sydney lately that has put me in the mood to make this light and airy card. The sun has been shining and it’s been feeling like Spring. I know I shouldn’t get excited yet, we’ve only just passed the middle of Winter here in Australia but for now I’ll enjoy these gorgeous sunny days and be inspired to create in some spring colours.
I decided today it’s time to let that humble little tag shine! I would usually use this tag die at the bottom of one of my cards for the sentiment but this time I’m letting it take center stage.
This is a great card to make if you have lots of little scraps of paper – just die-cut them with the Big Shot and one of the Lots of Tags die. You could use a mixture of patterned papers but I just used all the scraps that I had from one paper. Any little word stamps can be used to set the theme of your card. So you could make it into a birthday card, thank you, or because of the pretty pink doily pattern on the paper, it would make a modern engagement card with a little twist… just something a little different from the usual champagne glass images and such.
Just stamp up your greetings and punch them out with the Word Window punch and adhere them to some of the tags. Use whatever little embellishments you have to match your paper on the rest of the tags. A little Baker’s Twine at the wrapped around the bottom finishes off your card nicely.
