Good morning to you all. Today is Would You Ever Guess Wednesday, and this is my design team post for this weeks theme....Tags. I have been having fun making my Halloween cards and some Christmas cards. I thought I would get an early start. Sooo, on that note, I thought,I wonder if you could incorporate tags in a card, and not have them be used as a tag normally would be, and this is what I came up with.....
For my project I pulled out 2 cartridges....Paper Doll Dress Up and Sweet Treats and Martha Stewart seasonal Cake cartridges. I cut out 4 tags.
I cut them out in traditional Halloween colors. These were cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge, it has a lot of nice tag cuts. Then I took out my Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge to start cutting the accessories to bring my tags to life:)
For Frankenstein, I cut a square tag cut, and then there was a "Shift" cut for the scallop top, which worked out great for his head. and the belt cut came from the PDDU cartridge for the Santa Claus. I used a black gel pen to give him a mouth and some scars.
For the witch, I used the rectangular tag, then cut the witch hat from PDDU as well as the broom. For her hair, I cut the squiggly lines that went to one of the tag cuts, and inked them a little.
For the ghost, I cut a tag with a rounded top and scalloped bottom, and cut the Halloween goodie bag from PDDU.
In the background, I cut a fence from PDDU, and inked it up, and the sentiment I got from MS Seasonal cake cartridge.
The card is an 8 1/2 by 11 scored in half. Other supplies used in making the card are as follows....
White gel pen
white card stock
I believe the pattern paper is DCWV, not positive, the cover came off and I can not remember, sorry.
Tim holtz distress ink
Paper punches for eyes
That is it:) I hope you leave here sayin...I would have never guessed!!
