I did promise you that not all of my designs would be Christmas themed from now on, do you remember?
Well, true to my word I've created a Thank You 'tag' card... and not a hint of a Christmas theme or brown ink in sight. (I said no brown ink... didn't say anything about brown twine or a brown 'thanks' sentiment)!!!
This 'tag' card is for the latest challenge at Tag You're It.
If you haven't tried playing along I would encourage you to give it a try. It's a fantastic way to use up some of those craft scraps... and who doesn't have use for a tag? I sure do :)
Here's my design...
I have to be honest and say that I didn't initially set out to make a 'tag' card... but that soon changed once I settled on my choice of leaf die and realised that every single traditional tag shape I owned just didn't look right when paired with it.
No problem. I paired it with my Spellbinders Distressed Rectangle die instead :)
Who said tags have to be 'tag' shaped, anyway?
Can you see which parts of Jeanne's tag I've taken my inspiration from?
As I have no filigree leaf I've opted for an embossed one instead and offset it against a negative 'cut out' of itself. I've included the button, the sequins of different shapes, sizes and colours and swapped out a 'thanks' stamp for a 'thanks' die cut that has a few layers glued together for dimension. Attached the leaf using 3D glue... even edged my tag with blue ink to echo the colour of Jeanne's twine ;)
If you have the time, come and join us. There's a prize on offer again this month :)
