Stampin' Buds Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Buds Blog Hop! Welcome to those joining us from Janice Wilson's blog. What a beautiful gate fold card to give to someone you are grateful for. Next jump to Shannon Buck's blog at who has created...... Make sure to follow the entire hop, Shelly and Tina are up next. If you get lost there is a complete list at the bottom of this blog.

Tags aren't just for gifts, they can be the perfect base for whatever occasion suits you! This "Celebrate" card is a standard A2 card, which means it is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

The tags are cut at 2 1/2"  from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and then stamped using the Pomegranate Ink Pad and Packages, Boxes & Tags stamp set. The dot "tag top" used is one of four options from this versatile stamp set and the line of hearts, one of three options, to create a border around the tag.

The dots and bow are stamped in Eggplant Pigment Ink and the "Celebrate" sentiment, (five great sentiment choices in this set), uses the Pomegranate Pigment Ink. Pigment inks sit on top of the paper keeping their colors rich and vibrant, which is just what I wanted.

Gold Foil Tape adds just a little shine for the occasion and hemp from the craft store finished these tags off, with the center tag popped up with foam tape.
