The July challenge at the Cat's Pajamas is "Tag It" with the stipulation that the tag is hand made. I'm not very comfortable with tags. Mostly I use little ones I've punched for sentiments. This year one of my resolutions was to push myself to work on things that are out of my comfort zone, so I'm making cards with tags. Well, I've made two, it remains to be seen if I'll get around to another.
I was having an over the edge kind of day, as you can see the bunny ears are over the edge of the oval die and the banner and tag hang over the edge of the card. I made the tag and mat by cutting a rectangle, measuring a quarter of an inch from the corners on the top side, drawing a diagonal line through the quarter inch spots and cutting the outer section off. The banner is part of the design paper. I cut it out and placed upside down on the pink card stock, traced around the edges and then cut a smidge away from the lines to make the mat. The cup and spoon on the tag were also fussy cut from the dp.
Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajamas "A Girl and Her Cake" and "Small Sayings"
