Step 1: Gather your supplies, including several colors of cardstock cut down to the same width (3 1/8") but of varying lengths, so that the bottom colors will peek out when the shorter pieces are layered on top of them. Mine are cut down in 1/2" incremements.
Step 2: Using scalloped border punch, give one end of each piece of cardstock (including the tag itself) scalloped edges.
Step 4: Sponge some white ink around the edges of the tag, including all the scalloped edges. If you want a cleaner, more even look, complete this step on each piece of cardstock before layering them. So Steps 3 & 4 can be swapped, if necessary.

I had such fun with this card! I've been making lots of cards for 365 Cards recently, but I haven't had a chance to post them.
Things are crazy around here with school starting last week. I'm excited about the Holidays and all the motivation I usually have to create!!

I used hot glue to attach the bow to the clip and then popped a felt flower on the inside to better attach it (plus it's just prettier that way):
This was also my first attempt at making homemade cupcakes. And not from a box! A good friend came over and helped me decorate the cupcakes. Here's a close-up of one:

Next I scored each piece to create 8 3x3 card bases.
It's also a double-sided piece, creating more options. Here are the pieces I cut down to put on the card bases:
And here they are attached to the card bases:
Whenever I make a set of cards such as these, I like to pull out any embellishments that I think will coordinate nicely with the patterned paper. Here are some I grabbed out of my stash, along with the Glitz embellies I received to work with:
Here's the completed card:
Here's the entire collection of cards that I created:

It's been a busy week for me as I prepare for my daughter's 4th birthday party. However, I did manage to find a little time to create a card for today's sketch at 365 Cards - which is good because Sophie's on vacation and I'm filling in!
Here's the sketch:
I recently came across that Basic Grey paper when I was going through my stash looking for something else. It was perfect for the design I had in mind. Here's a close-up of the ladybug and flower:
This card came together rather quickly since I stuck very closely to the sketch. I love that button - it was part of a scrapbooking kit I bought a couple of years ago and I've just now found an opportunity to use it.
