Bonus tag 2 done!

Hi Everyone

Back again with my second Thank you card as inspired by Linda Coughlin's  bonus tags that she kindly posted for us as a follow on of  her fantastic 12 tags of Christmas Challenge click HERE for the details of the challenge.  Please also click HERE to see Linda's Tag 2 which has inspired my post today. As with my 1st Thank you card on my last post, I have stayed with the style of fold that Linda did with her Jumbo tag  to make a little card.  
 The first step was to colour the card with Frayed Burlap D.I.
I decided to emboss the front of this card with 2 folders I have had for such a long time I cant even remember the name of them.  I used Burlap DI over the embossing to show up the pattern better.   I have used the paper clip as a closure again, this time with a small die cut bird onto a punched circle both cut from Kraft card.    
A small strip of real Burlap was added to the small top edge and frayed back a little to soften the effect.  The Tim Holtz Burlap stencil was used on the back and around the front to get the effect shown in the picture above.  Below you can see the inside which has had the Rays Stencil used on it with the simple sayings Thank you sentiment on top of a piece of muslin.  The extra page on the left is held in place with the twine which wraps around and ties on the front of the card, this gives me more space to write a note to the recipient.

The 12 Tags Challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and is offering discounts for all who enter and comply by the rules, please click Here to take a look for yourself at what this lovely on line shop has to offer.

I have had great fun completing all the tags and cards for this challenge, and I would like to say a big Thank you to Linda for the inspiration she has given myself and others.  Thank you to all who have followed me and for your lovely comments.
Hugs Mo x

  2. I like this one very much, in fact I think it is my favourite. That is very clever double embossing on the front and I love the sunray inside, it really draws the eye to the central message. The die cut bird and burlap are the perfect finishing touches. Hope to see you soon. Big hugs, Anne xx

  3. Happy New Year Mo. Just saw a link on Redanne's beautiful post today which reminded me I needed to pay a sorely needed visit! So happy I did. This card is beautiful, and I'm always fascinated by folds, as I tend to do the same ole. I'll follow your links and thanks for sharing them. Love the treatment you did on this beauty, and especially loved the way you used the burlap to enhance it. Your stencil rays were a perfect interior decoration and the soft color scheme was so pleasing. Hope all is well with you and that 2014 will bring all the good things you way that you might wish. TFS & Hugs.

  4. Love this wonderful embossed tag card and I'm thrilled to see you winning!! Enjoy your spending spree. Jenny x

  5. Three Cheers for you, Mo! This is lovely! I just saw you won one of the Gift Certificates at the Funkie Junkie! I am so happy for you! I have a discount because I was one of the 25 that made it to the end, Have a lovely weekend. Julie Ann xx
