Allow me to rag on my darling local friends. When they give gifts, they don't give cards. They just give a gift, then they say: "Sorry no card." I am not sure when people stopped giving cards, I guess the gift is what people really care about, and the card tends to get thrown out. (Unless you are me who keeps boxes of every card I have ever received). Do you think I could get people to give gifts with tags instead? I love these ideas from our design team member, Kelley Eubanks.
She created tag which at first glance seems relatively simple. Here's a common thread with Kelley's work. Though typically clean and simple, Kelley's work is actually fairly intricate. She's taken the time to die cut the tag using her Spellbinders dies. Then she's changed the ink cartridge on the same PSA Rosetta's stamp three times. Not a big deal, but requires thought and time and isn't rushed. It's also centered perfectly on the tag. The pearls and the bakers twine are excellent finishing touches.
Kelley also created this tag, perfect to adhere to a Mother's Day gift. Again - first glance it seems simple – but look closer. She's colored in the flowers, adhered a pearl, punched, and layered. Love the color choices of pastels.
Tell me your thoughts today on Kelley's work! Do you give cards when you give a gift? Do you make your own tags?
