Challenge #4

My turn this week and my challenge is to make a card or LO using Tags and Flowers.

I used the bottom section from the 8x8 HOTP retro papers and then 2 smaller panels from different patterns, I covered the joints with contrasting ribbon, added 2 flowers from Dovecraft Embellishment (on top of each other) and secured them with a Big Brad from HOTP and a HOTP rub-on. The tag was cut from the artwork in the retro papers and mounted using foam tape, a button was secured on the end and a rub-on greeting completed the card.

For the scrappers among you, check out the sample layout, supplied by the Guv. The layout uses Masculine Sarapapers and matching Embellish-abilities, the titles were die cut with 'HOLTZ' being mounted on die cut chipboard letters. The bottom strip was aleft open along the top edge so that tags for extra journaling (in this case just the date & location) or photos could be slipped inside.

Don't forget to leave a comment telling us you've done the challenge and email your creation so we can put it in our challenge gallery.

The challenges are open to ALL papercrafters (altered artists, ATCs, Inchies - whatever), so why not give it a go

hi, i have made an attempt at this, i am not experienced a card making, i find it a little dificult to get that professional look, and some times i over do it, but I want to try and get better, so i emailed you mine.
