The other day I was in the mood to play around with some shipping tags and die cuts. I made a bunch of tags with negative words and then decided to put one on a card. It turned out to be a fun card to make because it started as one project, became a card and came together with bits of this and pieces of that.
I think Kraft paper and manila shipping tags look fabulous together! And white ink on Kraft is a look I really like too!
The little bicycle, from Simple Stories, was a small scrap in my bin. I cut out something right next to it for another project, but didn't want to throw that cute little bike away! It makes a darling accent!
The washi tape was the first and only roll I owned until Bella Blvd. came out with some last month at CHA. Since it was my only roll, I didn't know where to store it so it sat on my desk. As I was grabbing bits of this and that for this card, I saw it sitting there and thought it was a perfect match.
The reason for this project was to have a fun...not to worry about design or assignment, but just enjoy and let the process take me where it may. I really like butterflies and vintage buttons so I added those.
Hearts make me happy to so I included a few of those along with some stitching goodness.
This activity was really fun and one that I hope to repeat again real soon! Funny that it all came together one thought at a time without a plan. And it's one of my fave cards! Go figure!
Have a happy Tuesday! :)
