Here are my tag pocket card box pictures and details using the beautiful Flourished Verses  released today at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!



The tag and sentiment panel close up:


Picture of the tag card box with the drawer open:



This Tag card box is my own design and does not use a template or tutorial of any sort.

Tag Box Card Recipe:
Stamps: Flourished Verses  released today at Our Daily Bread Designs!!!
Paper: Kaisercraft English Garden, Bridal Pink from SU, Very Vanilla
Dies and punches: Lacey circles and Standard Circles from Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Twig die, Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish
 Embossing Folders: Provocraft Spots
Accessories: May Arts Ivory Silk ribbon, Green ribbon recycled from a gift I received at Christmas.  Recollections Button, Pink and White Gingham ribbon, lace

Here are two additional cards I created as sneak peeks over the past couple of days:

This card uses the Our Daily Bread Designs- Light of Life.  The verse is framed with the Sizzix  (Birds and Wreathe) embossing folder.  The flowers are scrunched and home made.  To create the foliage, I used the fanciful flourish die from Cheery Lynn, and the Martha Stewart Twig punch. On the embossed oval, I used silver baubles.

 

I used the Flowersoft Wildflowers Die cut dimensions adding citrus crush flowersoft (ultrafine).  The Our Daily Bread Designs Sweet Friendship is framed with Spellbinders Petite Ovals.  The Flowersoft panel is framed with the Lattice Rectangle from Spellbinders. The ribbon is white wrinkle ribbon from May Arts tied with the Bow Easy.  The designer paper is Kaisercraft English Garden.


Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you are somehow inspired by my creations!!  For more inspiration, the next stop on the hop is the exceptionally talented Dawn.
Have a blessed Day!!!

hugs and blessings,
