Playing Tag

Time for a new challenge at Cardmadfairy and this time it is to make a tag, something I have never done before. I bought some die cut tags a couple of years ago and haven't done anything with them up 'til now. I love all the vintage style cards and tags I keep seeing and when I got the new Simply Homemade magazine and saw the free papers I knew they would be perfect. I made a huge snowflake the old fashioned way by cutting into a folded circle then I covered it with glitter glue which I then heated like embossing powder and it puffed up. I should apologize for the picture, my camera is broken and I had to take the tag to work and take a quick picture there and it isn't the best. I used the perforated cutter on my trimmer to make the paper rosettes and the lace trim is from Wild Orchid crafts. The little kitty is of course Cardmadfairy's Christmas kitty. Our sponsor this time is the fabulous A Day for Daisies who generously gave a few images for the design team to work with and are offering a voucher to purchase 3 of their gorgeous images - check out the new'Cozy' release over in the shop now.
