"Tag-You're It!" - October Featured Card Showcase
Only 2 more months left of this year's Card Club Exchange! We've had 10 months of fabulous designs, colorful creations and wonderful inspirations. This month's theme "Tag-You're It!" seemed to be a bit of a challenge...one of the goals of our Card Club Exchange is to inspire and in doing so may mean that some of us have to step out of our comfort zone to participate. This month's participants stepped up and created gorgeous cards using a tag element (or two or three) in their designs.
This month's featured card designed by Angi C. uses a tag as part of the layered elements. Take a look:
This card is made up of several layers:
1. The kraft cardstock base with inked edges.
2. The doily cut from the Cheery Lynn Designs Doily Die (English Tea Party) is spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist (Pearl.)
3. Inked circle of Little Yellow Bicycle's Kitchen Medley.
4. THE TAG (Sizzix: Tim Holtz Bigz - Tiny Tags & Tabs) is inked along the edges, too.
And the Copic colored mini Magnolias (Mini Kitchen Tilda, Mini Tin Boxes) are adorable and perfectly matched with the sentiment stamp (Kiss the Cook)!
Sometimes the little details add so much more:
If you liked this card, make sure to stop by the store to see this one up close and the other card designs!
November's theme is "Thank You". I'm really looking forward to this exchange! We're all going to need a few these cards after the holidays.
Here are some important Card Club Dates:
November "Thank You" Drop Off 3rd Saturday: Nov. 19
December Theme: "White Elephant - Your Choice" YOU pick your theme! Follow the guidelines (10 cards-same design, 10 recipes (1 per card), etc.) This is a great time to finish up those cards for the month you missed or to use cards for a theme we didn't cover this year! **
Drop Off 3rd Saturday: Dec. 17
Note: Cards need to be dropped off by the close of business - 6 pm - on the 3rd Saturday. The busy holidays are coming...we simply cannot accept late cards - thank you for your consideration! Cards can be picked up the 4th Saturday of each month after 12pm.
