The Best of Everything Tag Card

The past two days I've been on the road traveling to Virginia to be with my cousin.  Her husband will be buried in Arlington Cemetery tomorrow morning and I wanted to be here to support her and be a part of the military ceremony.  It's sad how weddings and funerals seem to be some of the only times I get to see part of the family.  It not only makes me want to plan a get together for fun but it also reminds me how important it is to stay in touch and connect with family and friends through hand made cards and scrapbooking.

So today I have a quick share for you.  It's another make and take from my last downline meeting.  A perfect card to lift someone's spirits or just to let them know you are thinking of them.  I think that I will be using this card for one of my convention swaps with a change in the sentiment since I need a thank you card.

Pin It
  • My inspiration for this card came from the tags on page 77 of the catalog.  Tags are fun to use on gifts but I also like they way they look on a card.  
  • The tag is cut from the Two Tags Bigz Die which makes a very sweet and interesting tag.  I love the perforation that looks like stitching.
  • The flowers were stamped, cut, and popped up with dimensionals.  The pearls make the perfect embellishment for these sweet flowers from the Best of Everything Stamp Set.
Thanks for allowing me to share. I challenge each of you to make a card using a card in the catalog as inspiration.  Email me a picture of the card and the page of your inspiration card as I would love to share them on my blog.

Have a wonderful day...happy stamping!
