Anything but a Card Blog Hop

Please join the Flower Soft team on an inspirational hop.
This month’s theme is Anything but a Card

The blog hop starts on the Flower Soft® Blog on Sept 7th at 8:00am CT and ends Sept 15th at midnight CT. The winner will be announced on the Flower Soft® Blog on Sept 16thth. If you get lost along the way the complete hop list will be posted on the Flower Soft® Blog.

Be sure to comment on every blog in the hop. One lucky person that comments on one of the blogs will be chosen to receive 4 pots of Flower Soft!!!
Since the challenge is Anything but a Card. I created a little tag with a pocket to hold a gift card. 


 My tag is about 4 1/2" tall. I used my brand new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the tag. I used the card function so it cuts the tag with the little flap to glue over to make the pocket. 
I stamped the fall leaves image with black Versafine ink on white cardstock and embossed that with clear embossing powder.  Next I colored it with Copic markers.  I cut this out in a circle shape with my Kreaxions circle cutter and then cut a smaller circle inside of the bigger one, making sure not to cut through the image. I loved that this formed a ring around my image. 
Of course, I added some Flower Soft to give just that right amount of pizzazz to the image.  I mixed the colors on the acorn top and on the leaves. 
From my blog, be sure to hop on over to Vicki's blog for more inspiration.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
