Gift Tag

Inspiration comes from many different places. A friend who attended one of my classes recently, brought me this tag that she received, to share with me thinking that I would like it for a pattern so that I could recreate it.

It is adorable - right? But I knew I could make one even more adorable with my supplies so I got to work and this is what I came up with. 

All I did was measure the original gift tag - I think it was like 3-1/2 x 4-1/4, so I cut two pieces of Soft Sky cardstock to those measurements and cut the top at an angle to make it look like a tag. Then I scored one of the pieces at the top. This is the front of the tag. I used a scrap piece of the Sweater Weather Designer Series paper and stamped my image on a Whisper White layer. I adhered the two pieces together and voila!  I needed a card for my sister's birthday - which was a belated card. 

It really turned out cute. So, you never know where inspiration will come from next! I hope you are inspired to make one of these cute gift tag cards yourself!

Wonderfall Maple Leaf

I've been in my studio creating Fall themed cards. I got out my Autumn Accents Bigz die and used it to cut the maple leaf on this card. I cut two - one in cardstock, the other using the Sweater Weather Designer Paper which I LOVE! The designs are comfy cozy and I love the color palette. 

   I embossed the background paper using the houndstooth embossing folder just to give it added texture. A Tangerine Tango button with a linen thread bow finishes the design.
