So, this may, or may not, turn out to be my venture into the playground this week!
Everything is pretty much a snippet ... little bits of paper and card salvaged from the "little bits for sticking" box ready to go to my friend for school. The base card used for the tags was new though.
They are little "memory" cards and this one is for our nephew Nick's family. I send one to each of his aunties and uncles as well as his mom & dad (Phil's brother) and Nick's sister and her husband. So there are nine cards for Nick, another five for my late uncle's wife and children and then seven individual ones.
I wanted to keep them very plain and FORCED myself not to use distress inks or grunge of any kind. And as soon as I saw the die for the little bird I knew I wanted them blue (see previous post!) They took far longer to make than I thought they would but mainly because I orginally made them with a plain straight bottom edge but then decided I didn't like that and added on a lacy edge cut with the Martha Stewart punch ... and it is VERY difficult to cut embossed card I found. Next time I must remember to punch first and then emboss! I just put a teeny-weeny little tag ... snippets of the smallest kind!!! ... on the back to write on.
So here is the link to Pixie's playground - thanks for reminding me what to do Di!
