JAI 92 - Just add a tag or a bookmark

Hello there,
well we have something fun for you this week at Just Add Ink. This week we want you to Just Add a Tag or a Bookmark - there are so many possibilities open with this challenge and we will certainly enjoying seeing what you make of it! I am travelling back in time for my "just add a" - to September and Father's Day. This is what I came up with...

Super simple inside  - just a little picnic basket as that was what we were planning for Father's Day.
I started with the idea that I wanted to recreate the family on a tag and have the tag as the feature panel on a card. So with my handy Stamp ma jig I stamped out all the family (including our puss - he thinks he is the first child!) and then coloured us all up to match my colour palette (Pacific Point and Real Red - bright boy colours). (The tag I just created by cutting cardstock to the size I needed to fit us all in). I added some texture by embossing the top mat of the main card, and finishing touches include a nice big strip of ribbon to underlay the main panel and then another bit to be tied off as the tag flag. Of course being a boy card I had to add some hardware - so out came the large eyelet ;) Oh and as the final touch a little heart balloon that DH and I are holding to just add that little touch of love to father day.

Thanks for visiting, oh and don't forget to visit the rest of the DT for some awesome tag/ book mark ideas!
