Operation Write Home Sketch with Spectacular Set!

Hello Ai Fans!

"If you are looking for our Operation Write Home blog hop, scroll down to our Saturday post."

Today I'm sharing a thank you card since that's the theme of the blog hop.  I've also used a different type of bow since that's this week's Art Impressions challenge.
I've used sketch #165 from OWH.




I've put together a little "how to" for this pull out tag card...

1. Cut your base paper to be 5 1/2" x 11" and score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2".


Glue the "envelope" closed at one end and along the seam.


Cut your decorative papers for the front.
The matte (my coral piece) is 5 1/4" x 4",
the patterned paper is 5" x 3 3/4" and the peach strip is 1 1/2" x 5".  Punch your desired border design onto (2) 1" x 5" strips.


Glue all pieces together.


Cut a "half" circle with a die.  This is a lot of pieces of paper to cut through so you may need to trim it with scissors if the cut doesn't go all the way through.


Cut your ribbon lengths to be 4 1/4", 4 1/2" and 6".  The 4 1/4" piece is adhered to the card with glue lines.  The other pieces are folded and adhered to each other with glue dots.  Top with a little self adhesive dot and stamp your verse.  I used Thanks from Art Impressions.


Cut and glue your tag pieces.


Stamp, color and cut out mouse.  Stamp your verse and glue mouse to tag.
Punch your hole for the tag ribbon and you're finished.  I've used a new set from Ai called Spectacular Set.


You can personalize this on the back of the tag.
