Day 4: Vintage Tag Card

Day 4 brings us to one of my favorite kinds of cards.  I LOVE-LOVE making TAG cards!  A regular ol' shipping tag is a fabulous little canvas for creating art. Tags will appear in an upcoming day as well in a home decor project that is almost finished.  This card is super simple to create and has lots of vintage appeal while still remaining flat, meaning it's easy to mail with no extra postage or packing.  The 'buttons' are paper from a Sizzix die tied with a bit of red/white bakers twine.  The snowflake is 2 punched shapes layered and coated with Martha Stewart's Crystal Fine Glitter; love the look!  Everything is better with glitter...or so I've heard ;p

Tag cards: "It' s a Good Thing"

I've got lots more to share, there are still 8 days remaining in the 12 Artful Days of Christmas.  I'm realizing I need to time the posts so that folks don't see their card on the blog before it arrives in the mail!  I hope you are inspired to create something fun.  Enjoy!
