Large Tag Card


Here's a card that will be going into my next OWH box. I used the sketch from MFTWSC159 and took the colors from the Card Concept challenge#1 to use the colors of kraft, pink, vanilla & espresso. This challenge also has several choices of card styles to choose from, and I'm thinking this one might be"clean and layered." I don't know if the embossing eliminates the "clean" look, but the card looked too plain without it. I think my brain is permanently programmed to layer everything I create.
The punched border and flowers were done with SU! supplies, while the sentiment is from H.A. The ef is by Cuttlebug and the pearls were from my stash.

Wishing you a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful, Carol. I love this color combo and the punched flowers are soooooo pretty. I also like that pink tab. All our brains are wired one way or the other....well, except maybe mine. I seem to like every style except maybe doing masculine.Ha I guess I've made one or two masculine I enjoyed.

I'm pre-programmed to layer also, which is why I have so much trouble doing CAS. Love your card! I don't buy the little glue tapes anymore either, I just happened to have a couple in a side pocket in my tote bag... and to think that way back, that's all I used....I bet all those cards are in pieces by now... :-(

I'm totally pro-layers so you'll never hear me complaining about them! I love the colors of your tag card. The flower is especially cool--its so crisp and then it has those fun dotted leaves. Awesome!
