CAS(E) this Sketch #58

It was a quiet weekend– finally. I spent a lot of time in my craft room. I created this card for CAS(E) this Sketch #58.

Here’s the sketch:

Special tags for special people

I work with the best team of fund development and communications professionals around. They do an incredible job of inviting people into our work to end homelessness and engaging them in impactful ways.  I would give them all fabulous trips to a tropical island for Christmas if I could. But, I can’t. I was only able to share my appreciation and respect with a small gift, but I tried to make the packages special with elegant tags.

I used my Silhouette cameo to cut the tags and used a variety of scraps and embellishments I’ve accumulated over the years. The stamped sentiments and little bird are from Hero Arts.

I also took some inspiration from some of the layered tags I’ve seen designer Debby Hughes create, especially her recent Winter Birthday post. She does stunning work.

My favorite is the pink one — I ended up making a couple more like it for other gifts.

I’ve been thinking about the windows in this card by Keisha Campbell on the CASE Study Challenge since I first saw it a few days ago. I started imagining snowmen peeking through and had a little time to try out my idea today.
