Fairy-ily tagged

Tag You’re It! is the challenge over at Craft Your Passion this week.We have the fabulous Stretch n’ Bubbles as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the delightful Saraphena from Stretch n’ Bubbles and coloured her with FlexMarkers,of course being a fairy I had to add some crystal to her wings.This card is actually quite diddy in size – just 4 1/4″ x 2  1/4″.I had the idea of making  a  tag shaped easel card but didn’t have the right die to cut one.I raked out a Wendy Stenton Designs Tag Sheet Template I bought way back when I couldn’t afford a die cutting machine.I used the largest one on the sheet for the base and the smaller one for the fairy allowing parts of her to come over the edges. I also made the fancy shaped tag from the smallest sized one.The word is handwritten because none of my stamps looked right. I attached a flower eyelet and tied on some ribbon and paper thread,which was added to the small tag too.I also placed some raffia ribbon on the base.

Image : Saraphena  from Strecth n’ Bubbles

    Such a pretty tag card Lisa, I would never have thought of making that shape into an easel, but it works so well.

    Thank you so much for joining my ‘It Takes Two’ theme at Allsorts Challenge this week and good luck.
