Tag, You're It

Tags, ugh!  That's the challenge this week at Jellypark Friends

If you visit here regularly you know that "tags" are the challenge that I like least and that's because I stink at making tags.  For my presents I either use a card or a store bought tag (horrors, don't tell anyone, it's my deep dark secret).  So "tags" is really a challenge for me and it's good to stretch and do things that are not comfortable.  AND when you work with the cute Jellypark images it becomes a lot more fun. 

So here's what I did.  I made a card out of the tag.  Ta Da!  That's the beauty of digital images.  You can make them really small or really large, it's up to your printer how large you can go.  I hadn't planned on making a card, I just wanted to make a big tag, one that would be good on a big present but at some point the idea of the card struck me. 

This tag and the idea of the card/tag could be used for any occasion, and for anybody.  Just pick your colors and images according to what how you want to use it.  I wanted to make it a Christmas card and I love non-traditional colors on Christmas cards so I used one of my favorite palettes, pink and green.   It's hard to tell from the photo but in real life the snowman image is popped up on dimensionals.  It's also hard to see that there's glitter on all the hearts and circles and ornaments.  It looks really cute IRL.  The sentiment from the snowman image is on the inside along with a circle for writing a message. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Jellypark "Tag with Ribbon" and Jellypark "Snowman with Birds"
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade" and "Sour Apple" card stock
miscellaneous - copics, Viva glitter pen
