Old Cartridge Challenge

I made this tag for http://www.creativetimeforme.com/2011/05/throwback-thursday-challenge-wmy-design.html the challenge was to use Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge and if you don't have it to use another old one. Well I do not own Doodlecharms so I used Beyond Birthdays for the DAD font and Bags,Tags, And bogs for the tag card. Hopefully this will work for the challenge.
I card turned out really cute and definatly going to give my hubby for fathers day. I used the E2 and the Gypsy for the design layout.
I  made the bottle cap into a magnet and put a big eyelet in the middle and hot glued all together. Not sure if you can tell but the magnet is really cool.

I used the Beyond Birtthday cartridge for the scroll and the DAD, i shadowed both and pop doted them out to add dimension.  I punched a hole in the top of the tag added some ribbon and wa la..... Wish me luck on the challenge. Thanks

I have also entered this in couple other challenges for Fathers day, check out the challenges here.

  21. Your tag card is just stunning. I love all the extras you have added. Love the bottle cap! OMG the DAD has so much dimension I had to second look because I thought they were metal letters. Such a great job with this challenge. Thank you for joining us at Whimsical Wednesday. I am also so sorry I have not gotten here earlier to comment I had not internet.
