Mini Tags Card Set

I've had a wonderful Inkadinkadoo set that I got from Frantic Stamper for awhile and didn't want to put it away until I put it to good use!  I actually used it once before (here) for some other mini cards, but I love the size of the images and coloring them. I decided to make little tags out of them and use them for mini pocket cards.

I chose three of the six images from the "Boxed Wishes" set and colored them up using Copics.

I cut them out and added a circular clip and some hemp twine to each one to make the tags.

Next I created the card bases by folding a 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" Crumb Cake (SU) piece of cardstock.  I trimmed a Blue Bayou (SU) panel to 2-1/4" x 4" for each card and adhered to the card bases.  Using a gold Sharpie pen, I added the dotting around the border.

To make the pockets on the card, I punched Martha Stewart's Trellis Border out of Summer Sun (SU) CS.  I applied glue only to the bottom and very edges of the sides of the trellis borders so the tags could be slipped inside.  I wrapped a 5/8" blue satin ribbon and knotted it around the trellis.

I punched three Pale Plum (SU) CS flowers with a Martha Stewart Cosmos flower punch,  selected the AC Elements Glitter buttons I was going to use and used them as a template to pierce my holes into the center of the flowers.

I threaded the hemp twine through the top of the trellis and then added on the flower and button, then tied the knot on top.

This card set was inspired by the following challenges (turned out quite a few of the "same" challenges out there this week -- lucky me!!  ;0)
