IBS National Craft Month Card and Tag

Happy Thursday!

I am excited to share my Inspired by Stamping Design Team Card and Tag for National Craft Month!

It was fun creating this card and tag gift set. Yes, I think of it as a gift as well. The ‘spools’ can easily be removed so the trim can be used by the recipient. Though, I must admit, if I received this set I don’t think I could take it apart.  I would most likely display them in my craft area.

I used paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad to mat my card. The Vintage Thread stamp set creates darling ‘spools.’ In keeping with the vintage feel of the card, after I made the seam binding bow, I drenched it with water, crumbled it all up, then shaped it, and put it outside to dry.

A coordinating piece of paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad was used on the tag. To get the fancy cut on the top of the tag, I used the Fancy Label Dies 1. I placed a doily between the layers to add to the feminine feel of the tag.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Iris stamp set.

I hope you are now inspired to create a card and/or tag for National Crafting Month. 

There is an Inspired by Stamping Card and/or Tag Challenge this week and one randomly selected participant will earn a Guest Designer Spot for April!  How fun is that?!?!?

Beautiful set Lisa and how clever of you to make the spools removable so you are definitely sending 2 gifts in one.
