Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

This week's idea is a hidden tag card.
My friend Cathy in Arizona sent me a card and I liked it so
much that I am going to show you how to make it today.
Thanks so much girlfriend!

Baskets of Hearts Stamp - Love it!

Card Recipe

Base card is bright red card stock cut to 5 x7 inches
Mat  front is cut at 4 3/4 x 6 3/4.  You will need two pieces
of paper.  I used one piece of the red card stock same as the base card
and one piece of gingham designer paper.
Ran the red card stock piece through the embossing folder.
Scored the right top corner for the fold down.
Adhere the two pieces together along the edge only.
Leave the fold down portion unglued  forming a pocket for the tag.
Decorate the front to your liking.
Adhere the entire mat you just made to the card front.
I cut a corner from a square lace doily for the fold over and attached a 
heart brad and glued the fold down to the front.

Inside punch - Martha Stewart
White embossing powder
Colored with Copics
Red heart brad
Tag for the pocket
White grossgrain ribbon

By attaching the ribbon bow to the tag, it is completely hidden and the
bow looks like an embellishment on the card.

This card works for any occasion, and a gift card or money can also
be slipped into the pocket.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.........
