Hello, this month the Birthday Card we make should feature a tag, or a card with matching tag.
My tag is actually a window in a tag shape, like I saw Michelle from the Card Grotto do on her Youtube channel in May.
For my card I mirrored the window as my element (Toucan) faces the other way.
I've used all things Marianne Design:
Flowers are from the Bee set COl1505
Toucan is Col 1457
Double Sided tape LR0014
Distress inks: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness.
lots of colored cardstock.
I started bij cutting the tag shaped window 3 times from the left t make it straight and without smudges, only to realize I prefer it on the other side, so two more panels diecut and it still wasn't straight, looks straight when I stick it on, but I was fed up, so I cut cut a matte to make it straight.
I traced the opening onto the cardbase, masked the edges outside the matte and applied my Distress inks, then splattered with water and set is aside to dry.
In the meantime I diecut all the elements from Scraps of colored card, backed with the double sided tape, so they become stickers. I forgot one or two bits.
Mounted the panel with the tag window with foamtape before I realized I forgot to stamp the Happy Birthday and at this point I really didn't want another mess, so I did add it afterwards in photoshop.
I tried the black banner like in the Video from Michelle, but I didn't know where to put it and at the top is wasn't that pretty.
I then tucked the branch and all the bird bits into the window and assembled the Toucan and foliage. And lastly I added some details with a white gelpen.
I'd like to wish everyone Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
