Circle Tag Card

As I wanted to showcase how messages can be the focal point of your cards as well as afterthoughts, I decided to make the message appear to be slightly larger than it actually is. How? Simples, matting and layering and staring out with a larger circle.

First I stamped the tag using brown ink and then, using Versafine Spanish Moss ink, I stamped the message from the Mixed Sentiments set inside the tag. Remember all the messages in positive, the ones that are not in a circle, will fit in every single circle tag!
Then, I punched out the tag using the 1 1/2", layered it onto a dark brown 1 3/4" -from Stampin Up or also known as the original Whale of a punch Circle- circle punch and then all together onto a 2" Scallop circle.

This is the inside of the card, a bit more elaborate as I lately have been favoring.

A close up of the Circle Tag and the Essential Circle. I stamped each on a separate piece of card, I punched both using different sized punches, 1 3/8" for the tag and 1" for the Essential Circle or message.
The thanks for your support message is from the Mix and Match set.

The patterned die cut paper is from My Mind's Eye from The Glitter Pot.

Do the Mixed Sentiments set words fit inside the Circle & Square Tag sets?

Yes, all the messages from the Mixed Sentiments fit on the square and on the circle tags. I made a mistake when saying Mixes Sayings. The Thank You is actually from Mixed Sentiment.

Wow Paula, never seen a card inside like that. Fabulous idea.
