Splendid Things

 Manila Tag 

I'm posting this just in time to link up with Simon's Monday challenge. This week's theme is to make anything but a card so it was a fine time to make a tag.

I've noticed a new greeting card format that's long and skinny and happens to be the same size as a #8 manila tag (obviously without cut corners and a hole on top ☺). I've sent tags through the mail before (I make a custom envelope) but I've never used this format to make a card and plan to try it.

The background for this tag is a scrap from the Abandoned paper stash (Tim Holtz) and the flowers (Simon's Beautiful Flowers) were stamped on kraft paper and tinted with colored pencils before fussy-cutting. The kraft paper gave the flowers a nice vintage vibe.

I used a strip of Design Tape (Tim Holtz), some text cut from a book and there's a tiny bit of Nuvo Crystal Drops along one side of the tape.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.
