Note Card Swap at YPP

This month I participated in a Note Card Swap at Your Paper Pantry. We had to make 5 note cards that are 3.75"x3.75" or smaller and include an envelope. The theme was "Your Style" and the cards had to represent your style and you also had to include "hello" or "hi." Right now, my style is all about Tim Holtz techniques.

I used a #8 tag and 2 colors of Distress Ink (Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar). I used Tim's wrinkle-free distress technique to color both sides of my tag. That "chicken wire" background is actually a wire basket from the Dollar Tree that I cut apart to use in projects. (That bit of inspiration was from LuvLee Scrappin on YouTube.) I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to staple it to the front of my card.

The flower is made with lace. I followed this tutorial by NurseTara04 on YouTube. For the center of the flower I used some metal accents by TPC Studios.

Since I stapled something to the front of the card, I had to make a liner for the inside of the card. I just cut white cardstock a little smaller than the tag and inked it in the same manner as the outside.

I used the Tim Holtz Tiny Tabs and Tags Sizzix die and an alphabet stamp by American Crafts to make a tag that says "hi." I used the Tiny Attacher to staple black ribbon to the tag and then used SU Dimensionals to attach it to the card.

I hope you enjoyed my tag. I can't wait to see what I get back in the swap.

Many of the supplies I used for my tag can be ordered or purchased (at 25% off MSRP!) through Kris at Lone Wolf Designs. Please join her Facebook Group Lone Wolf Designs Discount Retail Sales to make a purchase.
