C4C416 Tag You're It

Good morning friends

Welcome to the first Crazy 4 Challenges challenge of 2018. Our hostess this month is Frances Byrne, and our guest designer is Elena Anderson.  Frances Challenge this week is "Tag You're It! - For our first challenge for the year incorporate a tag or  tags some way in your creation."

Karen Burniston released her Tag Book Pop-Up die set in November, which makes a really cool tag shaped pop-up card. I had the idea to insert the pop-up mechanism into a regular card to give you more looks from the same die. It must have been a good idea as other people are doing it now too! Love sharing ideas and ways to get more use from your supplies.

My card front uses a couple of my new Riley and Company stamps. I took advantage of their Black Friday sale and have some fun new humorous stamps to play with.

The coffee embellishments were fussy cut from a sheet of patterned paper in the stack. I didn't use foam tape on the inside embellishments or thick card stock, and this card will easily mail for a single stamp. Once I had the inside pieces folded and adhered together, I found it was catching because of a couple of 'chads' on the arms. I simply rubbed them with my fingernail and the card opens smoothly now.

There is so much dimension in this pop-up!

The die set also comes with a pair of paper clip dies, which are fun little accents.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C416.
