A Scentsational Tag

Good morning, Friends! The morning is off to a cold start around here! Wow!! I am glad to have my SmartWool socks on right now - lol! It should warm up nicely but you can tell that the seasons are changing! I am getting ready to have a stitching day today and I am so excited! A friend opened a new wool store and she will be providing classes and product! I wanted to go last month but I got the shingles and couldn't make it. Next month I will be making a pair of slippers! I can't wait! Tonight Pat and I will double date with some friends that we haven't seen in a while and Nick is off to a friend's to spend the night. Great weekend!!

Today's card is one that I sort of copied from a recent PaperCrafts magazine. The part that I copied is the tag. I just switched the product line and turned it into a card. I thought it turned out pretty cute! I cut a banner shape from Early Espresso. For the top part of the tag, I used the Apothecary Accents framelits and cut the shape out from Very Vanilla. This is folded in half lengthwise and put over the top of the tag. Then I punched and 3/4" circle from Lucky Limeade and adhered that to the tag. I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole for my Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon. Then the tag is popped up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. I adhered a 2 1/2" circle that was punched from Very Vanilla to a scallop circle of Lucky Limeade that was cut using the Perfect Pennants die. This is then popped up onto the card. Then I cut the tree using the Holiday framelits from Cherry Cobbler and a piece of designer paper from the Festival of Prints. Using various sizes of hole punches, I punched holes into the green tree. Then I used glue dots to adhere it to the Cherry Cobbler tree. The tree is then popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
