Birthday Cake Shaped Gift Tag ~ MCT Anything Goes

Hello, Gaylynn here with a cake shaped birthday gift tag or wine tag for the My Creative Time Anything Goes inspiration projects.


Sentiment:  Happy birthday to you.

Here is a festive shaped gift tag, decorated and ready to attach to a gift.  The cake die set makes it easy to add decorative paper accents and provides space for a sentiment.  I used My Mind's Eye paper for accents.  To make it a tag, I added a hole punch on the edge with ribbon.


Here is another look with the tag on a gift bag.

Sweet support or sympathy card and tutorial.

Sometimes it is hard to find words for loss, support or encouragement.  This is a sweet card to show that you care.


Sentiment:  I am here for you.

This sweet girl is by Phyllis Harris and she is colored with Copic markers and then die-cut.  The background was made from using a die-cut as a stencil.  It is super easy to do and stretches your dies for a different look.
