I was able to combine the MFT sketch challenge with the MFT Guest Design Challenge this week, woohoo!
We were challenged to Play Tag for this guest design challenge, and here is my finished ensemble:  gift with tag plus coordinating card.

Let's start with a close-up of the card (MFTWSC48):
I used some fun papers on the background, and stamped on another patterned piece.  I then blasted it with calico shine, so you can barely read the words here, lol!  It says, "Though we are apart, you're in my heart this Christmas", from Clearly Sentimental about Christmast.  I layered that sentiment on a piece of paper that I diecut with the Tag-You're It die.  After I cut it, I turned it around and ran it through again, creating the tag top design on both ends.  You can see a little open scallop border peeking out from the ribbon.  And to finish it off, I diecut a fancy flourish that is also covered in calico shine.

And here is the gift tag:

Let's take a closer look at some details:

I started with a kraft Tag-You're It base, then added some patterned paper, a dizzy doily cut from more patterned paper, and another fancy flourish.  You can also see more calico shine.  Yes, I love that stuff!  To make the 3D ornament, I punched 7 circles out of two different papers, folded them in half, and glued them back-to-back.  I fanned it out, added some twine to hang it, and a bow of crinkled seam binding.  The sentiment is again from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas, and I inked it separately to fit on two banner strips.  A few random rhinestones finish it off!

Thanks for stopping by!
