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.

On the inside.. I had a rectangle tag, cut the pumpkin top from PDDU as well as the pumpkin face  The Happy Halloween came from Martha Stewarts 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.
Cricut machine
Fiskars trimmer
atg gun
zig pen
Tim holtz distress ink
Paper punches for eyes
That is it:)  I hope you leave here sayin...I would have never guessed!!
