Tag Card and Sneak Peeks!

Christmas day came and went so fast! Lots of prep and one or two days to sit back and enjoy it. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, and that you get at least one more day to relax! I finally got back to stamping, after the holiday craziness! Just in time for a Create with Connie and Mary challenge!

The combination of a tag and a card is so fun, and pretty easy. Create a little small piece of art, and then put it on a bigger canvas! I find, working from small to large is the way to go.

 There are a few sneak peaks in this card! A Sale-A-Bration stamp set, some new mini Designer Series Paper (Tea for Two), Ovals Collection Framelits, and the Primrose Petals Seam Binding and Vanilla rose are part of a really cool Artisan Embellishment Kit!

I got the tag creation idea from my talented sister, who is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! She used a portion of a framelit to change the edges on her tag. I totally copied that idea, but changed out the framelit itself. I used the Labels Collection Framelits. I placed the top cutting plate so that only the top portion of the card stock would get cut.
