You Make Me Smile!

Hi! Happy Monday, folks! Tesa here with a vintage inspired card. I used the fabulous Be Stylish stamp. Love, love, love this one! :)


To get the vintage feel, I used some Prima papers and worked with distressed edges.

The card measures 6x6. It's a good size for a square card since you can fit larger stamps and many elements without making the card feel crowded. 

The sentiment is hidden on a pull out tag. The tag is the larger one from the Luggage Tags set. The sentiment that fits perfectly is from the Fabulous Phrases set.


So sorry about the quality of the photo!

Here is another close up with better focus, though the colors are a bit off.


The flags are cut out from the paper and matted on brown cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fabulous! I had no idea that the sentiments fit on that tag. And I love that it's "hidden". Great project!
