Today I am hosting the Technique Lovers Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. My challenge is to create a tag shaped card. I hope this is a great technique for the upcoming holidays but I needed a birthday card first so that is the theme I went with for my project today.

First cut out 2 tags…I used a tag shaped die for my card, but you can cut the corners off of a rectangle and create your own tag shape.

On one of the tags, score across the top just below the corner.

Add glue or tape to the top piece (above the score line) and add the unscored tag on top. Technically, you now have a tag shaped card.

Now you decorate!!

You can add the hole and ribbons and/or emboss, color blend, stamps, JUST have fun!! For my card, I did some watercolor ink blending on Bristol Cardstock, embossed it with a birthday embossing folder, then added a color hole at the top with ribbons.

I popped up a Birthday Word Die (cut out of a panel of strips of color cardstock) and a “Wishes” sentiment from the Joyful Day set (I also added a sentiment from this set to the inside). To finish it off, I added a “tag” tag using the Mini Tag Sentiment and Die bundle.

Now I can write a not on the inside and still pop it on the package to help decorate it.

I hope you are inspired – jump over and join the challenge at Splitcoast Stampers!
