Tag You're It Challenge #33

Good morning. I am honored to be guest designing for the Tag You're It Challenge #33 today. Here is the fun challenge piece.

I was inspired by the folded style of the tag. I first cut the tag from white cardstock using the Papertrey Ink Basic Bookmark #2 making it longer than the size of the die.

I scored the tag in two places to create three different sections and then stamped the fence from the Reverse Confetti Spooky Cuties set with Smoky Slate ink on the bottom section. The cat from the same set was stamped onto the fence with the head portion over onto the next fold using Versafine Onyx Black ink. After stamping the sentiment from the Reverse Confetti Spooky Sentiments set using Orange Fizz ink on the middle section, I used a Fiskars Fingertip craft knife to cut around the head portion of the cat so when the tag was folded it would pop up. The spider web was cut from gold mirrored cardstock using a die from the Paper Smooches Halloween Icons set and attached to the top section along with the patterned paper topper. I then stamped a couple of small spiders from The Cat's Pajamas Vintage Halloween set onto the first and second section using Sour Apple ink. 

Products: Reverse Confetti stamps, The Cat's Pajamas stamp, Doodlebug dp, Recollections mirrored cs, PTI cs and button, Paper Smooches die,  MFT, Stampin' Up and Versafine inks
