Make My Monday

Morning everyone and welcome to my guest spot on the DT over at Make My Monday. I was delighted to be asked to create a card for this weeks challenge which is continuing the SEASONAL theme but with the addition of a tag.
 I have chosen to create a tag in a box card, which is a design I found on the very creative blog of Marianne. There is a tutorial on her side bar showing how to make it.

1.I have used green card stock covered with Bo Bunny paper and over stamped with soft suede SU ink using the Young Vermillion stamp from SU and a Clarity corner flourish. I punched out a label to use as a background to pop up my little bird and the waste made a frame for the other image.
The sentiment is a metal embellishment that I coloured with alcohol inks to match the card. You can just see the punched edge of the tag poking out of the top of the card.

2. Gently pull the tag sideways and the holder for the tag appears. This is made with Bo Bunny card and is attached to the inside of the box card with a brad to allow it to move. I have added a stamped label, punched out and popped up with foam dots.

3. At last here is the tag!! More Bo Bunny paper, a strip of gold leaf and a stamped label which was a freebie from a magazine waiting to add the the recipient's name. I punched the edge and added a gem to ease it out.

Thanks you for visiting and putting up with such a long posting but I wanted to create something special for my guest spot:)
Do check out the MMM blog for the DT cards which are always inspirational.
