Tag thanks

I used some of the steel gray paper I got through the My Favorite things package I won for the base of my card, the cardstock is a great weight for a card base.  Punched a border for the tag added some washi tape. To keep the sticker sentiment straight since all the letters are separate, I added a sticky note to the bottom half of the letters and lifted them off the sheet together and applied them to the tag then lifted off the sticky note and the letters stayed put.  The tag covers most of it up but I stamped the banner I made in the background with a stamp with gears. To finish it all off added some buttons I found at a flea market and added jute to them as well as twill and jute to the tag.

Paper stuido -- Washi tagpe
Hot off the press -- Tiny words and phrases sentiment sticker

This is such an awesome layout and I love the washi tape! I wasn't sure if that was stamping or patterned paper, but that is cool that it is tape!

Aren't you clever to keep the sticker sentiment straight. Great masculine card. They are always so hard to do. I love the stamps you used.

What a fabulous masculine card! I love the clock faces on the text and the torn edge on that tag!

Leslie Miller said...

Great idea to use the sticky note for alignment! Cute design with interesting touches, such as the punched border on the tag. Love the gear stamp for a guy card. There you go again being good about using your winnings without delay.
