MCT Tag-it Tuesday ~ You're Just My Type!



Hi Everyone and welcome to My Creative Time"Tag-it Tuesday"!  This is a new feature at MCT, where we are to create a tag.  This week's assignment was to go with any theme.  Now you would think that with "any theme" I would be able to follow the rules...but, nooooo!  I couldn't just stay with a tag, I had to make a tag card!  That's right a TAG CARD!  hehehe





In order to make it a card, you need to start with a thin piece of cardstock (papertry ink cardstock will not work for this).  Tri fold it back and forth at two places.  Just make sure that the center section is narrower than the die (otherwise the die will cut it and you'll have 3 tags...no bueno).  When you run it through the cutter, again make sure the center section is lined up not to be cut on either side of the die.  I hope this make sense.  :)  Then cut one tag all by itself from a pattern paper and attach to the front tag.  That will give it more stability.


The center section tag is slightly narrower than the end tags, but it's all one piece of cardstock.


I created a pocket on the front to slip in another dag, for more "love notes".


The stickle hearts were stamped first then I added stickles for more sparkle!  Plus I added glossy accents to all of the small die hearts and the "xoxo".  Gotta love glossy accents!  :)


Recipe:
Tag Dies (tag base)
Stitched Sweethearts & XOXO ( medium heart, small heart, and xoxo die)
Once Upon A Time Stamp Set ( typewriter and small sentiments)
You're So Cool Stamp Set(tiny heart stamp)

Extras
thin cardstock 
Carte Bella pattern paper
jute
bakers twine
button
glossy accents
stickles
Mementos ink
Stampin' Up ink
paperclips
Provo Craft embossing folder

Don't forget to stop by and see what all the other girls from the Design Team made!

The tri-fold tag is a clever idea...lots of space to decorate. I like the pull out tags, tabs and the chevy dot embossing is very cool. Sweet job!
