TAG you're it!

Today I am back with a Cardz TV Gallery design team project.
I have used several of Mary's Cardz TV Stamps sets to make tags
for Christmas. I love using home made tags apposed to store bought, it makes the gift so much more special ❤️
And Mary's stamps are perfect for this project.

I made my tags with the open tag but, they most certainly can be made with a flat tag as well.

If the video is not showing up,
click HERE or youtube

For my tags I used
Close to my Heart - Art Philosphy cartridge
tag # M449A8 cut at
base 5.08 x 4.47
inside and front layer 4.78 x 4.19

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you can stop by the Cardz TV Gallery and check out the other DT projects with a new designer everyday!
