Hello, it's time for a new Cards in Envy challenge that starts today, December 2nd, and ends on December 15th. The theme is TAG! YOU'RE IT which means we want to see CARDS that feature a TAG. Don't be confused and think that we want to see a tag or gift tag. We still want A2 cards (4.25" x 5.5") that have a tag on it somewhere--itty bitty tag, mini tag, regular size tag (as long as it fits on an A2 card) or a tag shaped card BUT it still must be the A2 size. And as always cards linked for this challenge must be relatively flat to fit in an envelope for mailing (regular postage--no extra stamps). That's why our challenge is named CARDS IN ENVY!
Our Designers had a lot of fun with this theme and present you with some fabulous ideas and inspiration!
Danie, D-Dazzled Scraps
Danie created this fabulous Christmas Reindeer Tag Card--a simple design but so perfect for this challenge1
Debbie, Scrap Enabler
Debbie created this adorable birthday card! At first glance you are probably saying...where's the tag??? Well, there are EIGHT TAGS on Debbie's card! The pinwheel style flower is created from 8 folded TAGS!
Denise, Scrappy D's House of Cards
Denise created this beautiful floral TAG card in a tag shape but it is still an A2 card! If you look closely at the photo, you can see the inside top slightly open that shows that it is a card, not just a tag!
Karen, Calm Creations
Karen created this pretty pink and green birthday card with a large tag for the sentiment, the button on the flower is flat so that her card still fits in a envelope for first class mailing!
Kristie, The Best Things in Life are Pink
Kristie created a darling hugs & kisses card with hearts and a white tag. The colors on this card are wonderful!
Lisa, Lisa's Scrappy Hideaway
Lisa created a tag in a "pocket" for her card to create this fun and whimsical Christmas card!
Marilyn, Marilyn's Cricut Cards
Marilyn created a tag out of part of her sentiment for her card. A great way to showcase a tag!
Patricia, Thinking of Inking
Patricia created a card with a bit larger tag to showcase both her image and her sentiment for this adorable birthday card!
