It's a Sad Goodbye!
It's almost over...Sale-A-Bration. Just 19 more days and this stamp set, this ribbon, this designer paper, plus many other AWESOME sale products, will be GONE!  It's not too late for you to grab some of the FREE merchandise.  Spend $50 from the Catalog or the Spring Catalog and choose any Sale-A-Bration product of your choice.  You can sample the freebies HERE.  Sale-A-Bration ends March 22nd.

Here are a few tips to making this card:
  1. I cut the border using the edgelits. Be sure to cut only one layer of cardstock at a time.
  2. I used the framelits to create the tag and then cut off one end to form the straight, bottom edge.
  3. I used 3" of ribbon to make the knot and adhered it with a glue dot to the top of the tag.
  4. The stem of my flower is actually one shade lighter than the words. It might be tough to see in this picture. To do that I 'stamped off''; ink up your stamp, stamp it one time on scratch paper then on your tag.  Each ink pad will create several shades of color based as you continue to stamp without reinking.
