Also being very excited will be our Guest Designer for this challenge, Christine from Poppaeacards. Lovely to have her with us, as her cards are quite incredible. Please pop on over to her blog to leave her some love.
The theme for this challenge is 'Home Sweet Home' and we have this beautiful photo as inspiration:
I'm loving all that rich coloured wood and the words on each of these tags, so decided to make them the focal point of my card:
I found this paper by Echo Park and used a metal die to cut the tag. I went thru my cardstock 'scrap' bag and pulled out small strips of white card. I then wandered thru all of my stamps, finding ones that would relate to someone returning home. After stamping them all I punched holes in one end (as well as the tag) and threaded thru some silver thread.
I stamped my sentiment and glued this directly to the tag, which was then popped up on some foam tape. I adhered this to a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card front. This too was raised on foam tape to give some height. Three small silver sequins added with Glossy Accents and I was done.
It actually turned out better than it looked in my head, which is always a bonus I think!!
The wood paper is from Echo Park 'Everyday Eclectic'. I used the metal tag die from Pretty Pink Posh. The tag stamps are from Altenew and Lawn Fawn and the sentiment from Hero Arts.
As I've used some patterned paper, I'm also going to link this card to the challenge at Virginia's View #7 where their theme is:
I really hope you have time to play along with us and that I've inspired you somehow with my card. I can't wait to see what you all come up with and it will be lovely to visit you at your own blog.
