Tag it

Today's challenge on Daring Cardmakers has been set by Purvi and she's asking us to use a tag on our cards.

I tend to think of tags on gifts so I ended up making my card look like the front of a present with satin ribbon wrapped round a crisp white square. It looked a wee bit stark so I would probably have stitched round the edge to frame it but I've lent my sewing machine to a friend so a good old-fashioned pin and ruler came into play for a pierced border instead!

I cut the tag with a die and matted it using the 1/16" Perfect Layers ruler - easy with a shape that only has straight edges!

The berries for the holly are little circles made with a regular office hole punch, domed out on a foam mat with an embossing stylus.

Ink:
Delicata by Tsukineko (Golden Glitz)

Fab! I'd never have used such broad ribbon on a card - it looks great, just like a beautiful present. Very clever.
