Key to My Heart

The theme for this month’s TCP Tuesday challenge is tags. Your challenge project should include—or be—a tag. For my first card for the challenge earlier in the month, I used one of TCP’s CutUps tag dies, but for this one, I made my own tag from a piece of kraft cardstock.

The tag is dressed up with a shiny silver key made from a piece of metal tape that I cut with the key die from TCP’s CutUps  Key to Your Heart dies. The tape is great for making your own metallic embellishments—just die cut and peel off the backing paper and you’re good to go! I picked up a roll of the tape at my local home improvement store and have plenty (okay, really way more than I’ll ever need) left for other projects. I stamped the “to my heart” sentiment from the Key Phrases set underneath the key in red ink, then added a red double looped seam binding bow to the tag.

For the cardfront, I adhered a piece of checked patterned paper to a kraft card base. I ran a strip of red cardstock down the length of the card and tucked half of a paper doily underneath the left edge of the cardstock strip. The finished tag is attached to the card overlapping the doily and the red cardstock strip.

You can find all of the details on this month’s challenge on Alma's blog or in the TCP member company forum on SCS.

  1. I think this card is just so sweet using the doily and the metallic tape.
