Is it a tag? Is it a card? Nope, it's both!


Hooray for Friday-Eve! It's been kinda weird this week, spending my nights with my folks (due to the lack of a car) it's almost like being a teenager again as I work at the very same school I attended as a student; I could get used to the home cookin' again, that's for sure!*wink*

But alas! That's not why you're visiting today. It's time to crack on with a fabulous new CASE Study.

Get ready to study this beautiful card by our awesomely talented muse, Aga!

Check out the original post of this card here.

OK so I know I've been very literal in my interpretation of CASE Study so far this month, and have used the past two weeks to pretty much copy Aga's beautiful creations down to the final finishing touch. So this week I really did try hard to take my eyes away from Aga's perfect creation, and walked away remembering the main elements (The butterflies, the use of a tag, the gorgeous green)

Happy Birthday

This is actually a tag-shaped card. Easy to create: I simply folded a piece of card in half and placed my tag die so the top of it sat above the card fold before running it through my Cuttlebug. Easy peasy and pretty sweet too!

We hope that you can study along with us this week! Be sure to check out the rest of the amazing CASE Study DT - you won't be disappointed! :)

Great idea to do a tag-card! The white butterfly on the green background is just stunning! And I love the natural details of the button and twine:) Have a great day Aimes!
