I have a little fascination with gift tags cards at the moment.
Here are a couple that I made last night.
So pretty and yet versatile, with the fact you can turn it over and add a sentiment.
I first stenciled and stamped the base tag.
I fussy cut out the flowers from a kaiser paper
Added some twine and ribbon
They will soon attached to a gift. Hope you like them.
I am sharing these tags with the following sites:

A little reminder for the June challenge from DO-AL (l) Creatives:
June Theme: National colours.
If you are a sports fan and in particularly Rugby, you will be aware of our national team,
the New Zealand All blacks (the current holders of the Rugby World cup) and their flag:
So for the reminder I have crafted a card in these colours.
But before that just a reminder of our sponsor for this challenge is:
The New Zealand National sports flag is Black and white (the silver fern).
And here is my card.
Simple but with impact, a bit like our Rugby team.
Little known fact: the All blacks were called that by a British reporter back in the early 1910's. It is believe that the paper printed it incorrectly and it should have read 'all backs' (rugby term) but fortunately for us it stuck.
Most of our sports teams now are named accordingly:
Basketball - Tall blacks
Woman's Rugby - Black Ferns (current world champs)
Hockey - Black sticks
Cricket - Black caps
We are also famous for the Haka. The Haka is performed by teams completing at an international level, prior to the match to place the challenge.
All pacific island nations (except for Australia) perform a Haka. The Haka is amazing to be part of and to see live. It is truly inspiring when it is performed.
Ok enough of being patriotic, back to crafting.
I really look forward to seeing your creations inspired by this challenge.

The winter is here in New Zealand, the nights are cooler and the days are shorter. And all the more reason to stay inside and craft.

A great new challenge from DO-AL (l) Creatives:
June Theme: National colours
Our sponsor for this challenge is:
And I have used one of their digi's.
The New Zealand National flag is red white and blue.
Unfortunately it is often mistaken for the Australian flag which is the same colours but the stars of the southern cross are white and they have 1 extra star.
now for a couple of extra close ups.
And just to show that the card design would suit many colours I have also complete one in the national colours of Germany.
I hope you like the card and I do look forward to seeing your creations.
I will be completing a reminder card for later in the month using the colour for our national sports teams.
