Elizabeth Craft Designs February D T Challenge- Tags!

Hi Everyone!
It's the end of February and that means it's time for the Elizabeth Craft Designs February Design Team Challenge. This month's theme was to combine different tags and or the elements from the tag dies into a project. With such a variety of gorgeous tag dies to pick from this challenge was a lot of fun!


To make this card I created the base from Tags & More 7- Vine on gray cardstock. I embossed the card front with Lots of Dots embossing folder. I cut a smaller tag from Tags & More 4- Flourish and cut the decorator flourish from the pattern paper and added the negative pieces to the tag. I love how the edges on these two tags compliment each other so well. The pattern pieces are from Authentique. All pieces are inked with Vintage Photo distress ink- my favorite brown.  The flower is the smallest Victorian Flower cut from cardstock with Transparent Double Sided Tape on it and then glittered with a combo of Orange and True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. A few strips of Red/Gold Glitter Borders, ribbon and a perfectly tiny sentiment Peel-Off in black to finish it off. *Note- I love the tiny sentiments in Assorted Words Peel-Off. There is a nice variety and they are perfect for cards that need a smaller sentiment that is easy to read and apply. Pick up a sheet!

Buster Birthday Card!

Hi Crafty Friends!
When I created the PURRfect valentine card featuring Whiskers the Cat for my last ECD Blogpost I knew I wanted to do a similar version featuring Buster the Dog. We made the Buster version in my DistINKtive Cards class this month at Scrapp'n Savvy and it turned out so cute!

The Rectangle Pull Card die makes this card a breeze to make! I used the new Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to color the letters for WOOF, Buster's collar and to color the glittered heart Balloon and the dog bowl on the inside of the card. I used Shimmer Sheetz for the other two balloons and added them to the Spinner with strings anchored under the bowl full of bones. Buster is wearing a Teal colored Microfine Glittered birthday hat from Props 2 with a tiny pompom on the top- he's so cute!

Thanks for stopping by today! Try pairing up the Rectangle Pull Card, a cute Character and some accessory dies to create a fun card sure to bring a smile!
