bird card which was meant to be a tag.


I originally started making this for the tag it on challenge which is "up, up and away", but somewhere along the way I forgot that was making a tag and it turned into a card. The stamp is from The Artistic Stamper. The background is done using the technique Jo showed in this month's craft stamper. I have used real dried flowers on this card so I have attached it to the back of the acetate with eyelets to protect them.
I am also sending this in for the current Art Raffle theme.

Don't forget it's Day three of PaperArtsy's 12 day of christmas with lots of samples and a giveaway, don't miss out!

  6. I looked at this and thought 'oooo this looks really layered, just my kinda thing'...then saw my name mentioned and was really pleased you'd tried it out.

    I love cards that started life as a tag- the tag part always looks so packed with thought and decisions that the space of acetate or white card that its mounted onto gives it a chance to stand alone and look less intense. Looks fab, good move.

    Reading that back I sound like the drunk propping up the bar talking waffle, sorry about that, I hope you understood what I was trying to say. Its been a long day lol.
