Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card I made today using the Tags & Feather Elements (#150455) from page 47 of the Holiday Catalog.  This card is also part of my 12 Days of Fall mini series that’s going on right now.  I wanted to share with you 12 Fall themed projects to help celebrate the changing of the seasons.  Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, I love when the air gets a little crisper and the leaves start to do their rich  brilliant beautiful color changing dance.  Here’s a look at today’s project.

The Tags & Feather Elements play a key roll in my card today.  These beautiful little wood elements help to add a touch of the out doors to my card.  The Tags & Feathers Elements are wood accents with a light whitewashed finish on one side and natural wood on the other. The Tags have holes for thread or ribbon which you can see I took advantage of today on my card.  
I actually turned the little wood tag over to the natural side of the wood element and stamped my sentiment directly on it using Soft Suede Ink.  My sentiment came from the Gather Together Stamp Set (#150589).  This gave me a look of faux wood burning which was a very nice happy little accident.  I did try another one stamping on the white side but the ink and the coating on that side didn’t like to play nicely together.  So my recommendation would be to stamp on the natural side and make your life easier.  
After stamping my wood element I started working on my card front.  I wanted to keep it simple and let the wood element and the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper be the stars of this card today.  My card base is a piece of Blackberry Bliss Cardstock (133675) cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to make a side folding A2 size card.  I then added a very thing piece of Whisper White Cardstock (#100730) as a mat which was cut at 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and my main piece of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (150662) was cut at 4 x 5 1/4″.  To accent the wood tag I used another strip of the designer series paper; I just picked one that would match and it was cut at 1″ x 3 3/4 and I trimmed off one of the ends.  I also added some of the ribbon and linen thread from the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack (#150456).  The ribbon I added with a little Tear & Tape (#138995) and cut the end to match the little strip of designer series paper.  The Cajun Craze Linen Thread I tied in a double bow and attached with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683).  Which is also what I used to attach the tag element.  
.
And that finished off my card.  Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have a wonderful day, and I will see you again tomorrow.  You can find all the elements that I used to create this card in my online store.  If you would like to purchase any of these items you can do so by clicking on the item in my Stampin’ Up!
