Happy Birthday tag card

Hi everyone! It’s Hump Day and it’s Day 3 of the 2020 Cat Lovers Hop! The Hop is going on until the 31st, so if you’re a fellow cat lover, come join us! There’s a lot of fun and games to join in every day, and Janis has been busy lining up some pretty awesome prizes to give away at the end!

I have a really fun tag card design of my own to share with you today that features super awesome Laurel Burch stamps! Who doesn’t LOVE to color Laurel Burch stamps (especially the cats)?! The sky is the limit with color choices! The bolder and brighter, the better, I say! ;)

I cut a top-folding card base in the shape of a tag and then picked out two coordinating bright pink papers along with some pink washi tape that I applied at the seam. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the images and adhered them to the panel, then stamped the sentiment and applied several small iridescent gemstones that I colored with a pink alcohol marker. I created hole reinforcements from white cardstock with two circle punches. I punched a hole through both layers of the card base and adhered reinforcements on the front and back side of the front flap. The final step was adding ribbon.

I created the inside panel just like the front panel, stamped the sentiment, added the hole reinforcements, and added a stitched square die cut for the signature area.

And one more peek… I’m in love with this design and see more of these in my future! So fun!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  3. Leslie, I am a huge fan of Laurel Burch – I love all of her quirky stamps and the cat stamps are just stunning. I have a few, but there’s always room for more! Lovely bright colours on your tag – a fabulous kitty project. xx

  4. Oh, I love love love LB cats!! Yes, the bolder and brighter, the better when coloring them. Bummer that Stampendous no longer has the contract for LB licensed products so they are not marketing any new stamping products from her art. (So sad abt that!) Happily, though, Stampendous still sponsored our Hop with some of their homegrown products from Fran’s art.

    Love your tag design, Leslie! So pretty in pink and the double layer allows personalization. The inside looks wonderful, too!

    I have been slow visiting everyone, but I am delighted to be making my rounds and seeing what all the Hoppers have shared. Thank you so much for joining in the feline fun at our #2020CatLoversHop!!
