More October 2009 CARDS Publications

Hello everyone! Here is another card and a couple tags that were published in the October 2009 issue of CARDS Magazine.
Here is how the cake was created: cut cardstock strips, emboss strips with swiss dots, adhere strips together (with a cardstock backing), embellish with ribbon and trim then adhere the assembled cake to the card base. Once attached to the card embellish the cake top. The green cake base was cut by hand then attach just under the cake.
The tags were punched from cardstock, punched with a scalloped border then embossed with swiss dots. Stamped and cut out peas, attached to the tag with a sentiment. The buttons were threaded with twine then the twine was threaded though the tag hole and tide to the bows. If you need any more info please let me know.

On the camera front, my mom and sister have graciously offered to share their cameras with me occasionally while mine is in for repairs. Hope to share some new stuff with you soon.

Hope you have a blessed day!
