Tag It.........................

Hello there!!

It is time for Digi Choosday and this week our challenge theme is 'Tag It'. This is a cool challenge as it can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be!

I chose the Roses Bundle Collection which is just a snip at £2.50 for the whole bundle. Bargain!!!!
Look at those papers! Beautiful!!

I used my Cricut Expression 2 (which I got as a GIFT from a friend, I know, well spoiled!!) to cut out the Tag. Now I could have had a plain and simple tag but I saw a cutting file called 'Card' and I thought hmmmmmm...........interesting. So I cut this out and thought - 'a-ha!' - and promptly threw it away.

I had printed out the pink rose paper onto centura pearlescent cardstock. I promptly put it back into the cassette and printed the paper again.  Double sided cardstock people! I know, you've been doing this for years, I just realised I could, I'm excited, what can I say!? So I then recut the tag card and voila!  This means that when you open it, it's not boring and white inside!  I added a sentiment from the Celebrational Sentiment Bundle.

So the inside of my tag looks like this:

For the front I had printed out some small roses and built them up to give some prominence and then I added two flourishes from the Cricut for effect. A little butterfly, some pearls and some dotty ribbon, done!

There you have it, a 'Tag Card' which I think turned out quite well. Don't forget to pop over to the main Challenge Blog to see the rest of the design teams fantastic inspiration and perhaps join in the fun with us!

Thanks as always for popping by.
