You're So Tweet!

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan here again with another card to share with you!
You know I love a pretty tag.....and I just adore a pretty tag ON a card!
I used the Die-Namics, Stitched Traditional Tags, layered in Brown and Pale Blue card stock as my base.  Then I created my little garden scene complete with birdhouses, fence and feathered friends.  I die cut my Picket Fence by Amy Design in White card stock.....because every house, bird or otherwise, needs a little white picket fence!

Using the sweetest little Bird House set from Paper Smooches I die cut card stock in several different colors.  I  also added some texture to one using a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  Laying out each piece, I adhered them and topped with my fence.  Of course, it needed something more.  Enter the handy dandy Foliage 2 dies also by Paper Smooches.  I must say that these particular dies are VERY versatile!  I have used them in flower bouquets, as grasses, like here, I have even made a wreath using only them.....lots of them!  They really are one of my 'go to' dies....a MUST have in any craft room! 

Another little Die-Namics Stitched Traditional Tag, sentiment stamped in Real Red ink, topped with 2 Adhesive Pearls.
Accents include, Eyelet, Button, Twine and a Natural Fiber Ribbon in Green.  The large tag is popped up using 3 Dimensionals.
This could be used for a New Home, Thank You or All Occasion card.  I think the recipient would enjoy this piece of Happy Mail!

Here's what I used:

  4. WOWZA what a fabulous use of those dies! CUTE scene you've created and I love the angle ... I would never think to do that but it sure looks awesome!

  5. That is just beautiful, and yes every house needs a picket fence, love the colors and the bushes you put along the fence and the ribbon treatment on the tag is very pretty!
