Ideas for making a card.

(14 Posts)

Yesterday I took three tags, coloured them in with chalk and then punched large and small flowers out of sparkly paper, glued two onto each tag and decorated the edge with glitter glue.
Now I am ready to make a card, but am lacking inspiration. I was thinking of cutting a triangular piece of the sparkly paper and glueing down one side of the card and then attaching the tags.

Any ideas?

How about dangling them from some narrow ribbon or fibres on a landscape card. I like attaching labels with 3D foam pads to give a bit more depth.

oooh the tags sound lovely, you could put rectangle of card going down folded edge and stick tags just before the edge of rectangle.
or you could use pegs.

Or you could use card landscape way and put ribbon through holes in tags and stick them going accross with foam squares to raise them. a rectangle going accross under tags may look nice too.

Thats spooky, champs and dingle. Guess you both are experienced at this. I like the idea, so will have a play about later, and see what looks good.

I wouldn't mind if I had actually made one like that, but I haven't! Not yet!

Just to let you know what I did.

I used a lemon card landscape and used just one of the tags (they were too big to use all of them), and then I cut four strips of sparkly paper in lilac and pink and put two down the side, and two across, and then stuck the tag at an angle. I want to get some ribbon bows so that I can put it through the tag hole.

yes it does sound lovely, can really picture it. Person recieving it will love it, or are you going to sell?

I've only just started making card, well since Nov last year.
I haven't made enough to sell so am just giving them to friends at the moment.

I don't know if this is any help to anyone... Last year I bought a software package for making cards, gift tags etc it is fantastic. I thought I would share it with you.
