The Card Concept & Paper Smooches


I'm popping in tonight after a busy day, to share a fun little tag I made yesterday during crafty time. My intention was to have most of the day (if not all) solely in my craft room to "play" and create, and, alas, I didn't make it. I know at one point, I got distracted and began tidying up in my room. Gasp! But it needed it. The clutter was stifling my creativity! (I hope that was all that was stifling.) And, then I found a bunch of my PaperCrafts Special Issues that had slipped under my desk and that made me sad and that was a distraction. It wasn't in the cards for me! (No pun intended.)

I did manage to eek out this tag.  I'm partial to snowmen so I wanted to play along with The Card Concept's Snowman Tag challenge using my new-to-me Paper Smooches "Freezy Fellas" stamp -- and I decided that was perfect for SPARKS Anything Goes.


I used PTI's Tag Die #3 to cut a white tag and a red tag with the inside of the red tag trimmed and removed by using a kraft knife. I stamped and colored everything before embossing the sentiment and adhering the red frame. It was quick and easy enough, I'd really like to make a few more. 8-) I'll just add it to my growing list of Christmas projects. Ugh. (Too many ideas, too little time!)

For the Card Concept, I consider this a "Clean and Layered" tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

God Bless,
