Quick & Easy Cards & Tags Using Scraps

Hi everyone! It’s Robbie today to share some cards and a tag inspired by… ME! Seriously, why not stretch an idea even further? Recently, I made a two page layout (Zoo Fun Day) for the 3 Birds Design Studio blog and I was really happy with the color combination that I ended up using. While it was all sitting on the table, I realized that I had a lot of scraps and all the supplies at my fingertips which led me to make a couple of quick cards and tag to have on hand.

It really made these come together quickly.

DESIGNER TIP | When stitching the doilies for cards, be sure to stitch them ahead of time and adhere them after. This will cut down on trying o cover the backside of your stitching on the inside of the card.

Remember next time you make a project you like to think about getting some cards or tags made to have on hand! It’s always great, especially with the busy holiday season around the corner, to have these handy when you need them!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Robbie
