Joan's Gardens Tag Challenge

Same tag -- two looks

It's time for another Tag Challenge.  How many tags do you have ready to give when it is time to give a gift?   I love doing these challenges so I have a great collection of tags ready when I need one.  I hope you will join us in the Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens.

Today I wanted to show you how different the same tag can look with just one change.  The first tag above I used the Martha Stewart "Double Loop" punches to create a border.  It sure gives the tag a dresser look doesn't it. 

This tag was created with two JustRite stamp sets:  "Backyard Birds" and "Just a Note".  The bird was stamped and cut out with a circle Nestie.  The border, from the same set, was stamped, colored with Copic markers, then cut out with scissors around the design.  These pieces were then layered over an aqua Spellbinders "Lacy Circles" die. 

The border was punched and a piece of white card stock that was embossed placed in the center.  The sentiment from the JustRite "Just a Note" set was stamped and die cut with the new Spellbinders "Parisian Accents" tag.  It was sponged prior to taking it out of the die.  A piece of trim was attached to the bottom of the card with ScorTape and a bow added at the top to complete the card.

Awesome tags Selma! LOVE the 'less and more' technique you've used here. What a wonderful idea to show how different the 'same' tag can look with just a slight addition! GREAT JOB as always! Thanks for inspiring us!!
