Hi there! Happy Sunday to you! This week at the Paper Players, the fabulous Jaydee is our hostess and our theme is to create a Clean and Simple card with a tag incorporated into the design.
I realized while making this card...that I am pretty much "tag-LESS" in my stamp studio! I guess I really don't use tags a lot on my projects so this was a real challenge for me. I guess I know what will be on my next Stampin' Up! order. Sheesh! My tag was created from a punched 1- 1/4" Square punch and a 1- 3/8" Square punch with the top corners snipped with the Tag Corner punch (ret.)
Ok, I guess technically this isn't a really Clean and Simple card, by the standard definition. As a self-professed "layer queen", I am still challenged with CAS cards. I guess it's a known fact because while we were creating our make & takes at Regionals yesterday, everyone at the table kept saying to me "You probably want to add a few more layers to these cards, don't you?" Yes, (shaking my head*) I sure did! However, this IS a CAS card in the sense that it didn't take very long to create since I focused on using punches for the images. It came together very quickly. Gotta love those punches! The supplies I used are listed at the end of the post.
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you will stop by and play along with us this week at the Paper Players. Please stop by and visit the rest of the lovely ladies on the Design Team to see what they created, too.
