Tag Die Card

 Hello and thank you for visiting me today.
Today I'm  catching up with housework and laundry today but I spent yesterday playing in my cabin.

The die is a new purchase from Elizabeth Crafts. The main die makes a tag flip card which can be used on any size card although I choose to make mine A6.  There are several other dies in the set.

All the stamps are from the same set which came with a Creative Stamping magazine and it was the first time they'd been inked up.  Goodness knows why as it's a very pretty Deco set of stamps.

I began by colouring the front and inside of my card with Distress ink although it looks a bit pale in the photo. All tags were cut out using a scrap of card from my snippets box which had previously been coloured with an old tea bag.  I used to do that a lot before  Distress inks became available.

I  would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Craft Rocket Challenge  #31  (Add a bow)

The Ribbon Girl  (Any Image


Stamping Sensations January (Coffee and Cream)

Crafty Addicts Challenge #32 (Monochrome)

    what a fantastic die, and very handy one to have.
