Sweet Fun Fall Tag - CAS

Today I decided to make a tag instead of a card for two challenges. I thought this might be nice to use when gifting pumpkin bread or ginger snaps once autumn arrives. The idea of a double card was inspired by one challenge and the other influenced the layout on the tag.

A panel of cardstock was embossed with a die to create the stitched wood grain texture. The tag was cut from that panel. DSP was cut with a zigzag die, backed with foam and popped up on the tag to make a band. The pumpkin was stamped and fussy cut from white cardstock, backed with foam and adhered. The words were die cut twice from two colors of cardstock, then adhered to the band. Another matching tag was cut from DSP, adhered to white cardstock for strength and attached at the top with the with the tab and hemp. The pumpkin and the words were coated with clear Wink of Stella.

The tag is to be submitted to:
