Friday Focus: Cards with Tag Sentiments

Hi everyone!

I've got a few cards for today's post using Simon Says tags for my card sentiments. Check them out:

I used a mixture of patterned papers from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss pad and added a punched butterfly with a button and yellow and white bakers twine.

I added some chevron washi tape on the bottom of the tag to give it some flair.

The above card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Kristina Werner. I used papers from the Simple Stories Color Vibe pad, chipboard letters by American Crafts from my stash, and black and white bakers twine on the tag.

Thanks SO much for check out my card designs today! I hope you have a wonderful evening!
