Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, 

My card today is for a challenge I am doing with a couple of friends of mine. Each month we get together and go to our favorite stamp/scrapbook store and come home with one or two new goodies. So we decided to also challenge ourselves each month using a product we all have.

This time round our challenge was to use one of the Tags & More dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. As I also have the new larger Tags & More die sets which have recently been released I decided to create a Tag Shaped card. 

I also decided to use the new Tag Pivot card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. So I guess I have made a Tag Pivot Tag Card haha!

The Tag Pivot Card die normally die cuts a large tag shaped on the left side and two smaller tags on the right side. For my card today I decided to change it up by die cutting two larger dies in my card instead. To do this I just kept my card folded and lined just the large tag onto my card.

My images is one from Penny Black Stamps.

Here is the back of my card, I love that you can see the greeting from the back of the card.

Love everything about your tag on tag card. The little girl, your coloring, the sentiment, everything. I would never have thought to attempt not cutting out the whole tag pivot. That Kaisercraft paper is the coolest. Do you use what you have or buy what you need? You always seem to have the perfect paper. Thanks for all of your many lovely creations.
