Tagging Along

Tagging along with DCM 'Everything we buy has packaging, some of it excessive, some of it beautifully designed. Tags, labels, stickers... all sorts of bits and bobs that we can recycle onto cards.I dare you to make a card using a tag, label, sticker or anything else you can find, thats from packaging and would normally end up in the bin. Of course you can ink it, change it, distress it and add anything else you like!' and Di Hickmans sketch to create this card, it took a while to get to it's final destination, but I got there in the end, where I was happy with the result. I knew this tag would come in handy!...it was to pretty to chuck away, (oh and I also incorporated the ribbon that came on the tag)!

Hi Esther, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a lovely comment!

The monogrammed initials are Basic Grey Undressed Monograms. I love the shape and styling of these so much that, to maximise their usage, I'm using them as templates and cutting papers, card etc out in this stylee.

The lettering on the 'Sam & Carl' card are from Making Memories.
