A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

A Tag on a Card

Merry Monday's current challenge is to add a tag to your card using texture, bling, and die cuts.

I had the most perfect tag in my UFO box so I turned it into this card:

I've got texture from my embossing folder background, die cut trees, and bling in the form of glitter all over the trees.

The background on the tag was made with blue and green Lindy's sprays (quite sparkly IRL).  I used my Tim Holtz tree line die, and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment at the bottom.  I went over the trees and the snow line with a Quickie glue pen and sprinkled with glitter. 

Thanks for dropping by today!

Ink - ColorBox aqua
