Canned Tag

Good morning, Friends! I hope your weekend is going great! I know that I told you that we had the house to ourselves last night. It was pretty quiet around here! We ended up just enjoying the quiet and got some things done around here before ordering a pizza. Yep, nothing fancy. But it was nice. So, we will be picking him up soon and then he has another soccer game (they tied their game yesterday). AND... it is my husband's birthday, today, so we will be shopping for some new shirts for him (he needs some badly) and then our wonderful friend, Becky, will be making a glorious dinner and dessert! Can't wait for chicken and noodles!! Yum!!! 

Today's card was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. I loved the tag that they used so I tried to make it a little different on mine. Used a different set and here is what I came up with. I adhered a strip of Orchard Harvest designer paper onto a card base of Crumb Cake and then stamped the greeting from Friendly Phrases in Early Espresso. Then I cut a piece of Crumb Cake to 2 3/8" and slid the top part into my 2 1/2" circle punch and punched the top part of the tag to round it. I flagged the bottom part and then popped this up onto the card. I stamped the images from Perfectly Preserved in Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Raspberry Ripple and Lucky Limeade onto Very Vanilla and cut them out using the Cannery framelits dies. I adhered these together and popped them up onto the tag. Then I added a bronze button with some Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon to the top of the tag. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
