Missoni Tag Upcycle Thirfty Birthday Greeting Card

Today I'm sharing with you a card that I used a tag from a Missoni for Target tote bag.  I loved the pattern on the tag, so I decided to use it on a card.

This card also qualifies for the color challenge over at Splitcoaststampers CC350 which is Blushing Bride, Pear Pizazz, and Marina Mist.  I don't have Blushing Bride or Marina Mist, so I used Baja Breeze and Blush Blossom.
 I stamped the base of the card with the rose from Fifth Avenue Floral and used Baja Breeze ink.
 I used the sentiment from Whimsical Words, and the wide oval punch to cut out the birthday greeting.
 I used the eyelet border punch for two additional layers.
Here is another final look at the card.  What will you do to make your stamping/scrapping dollar stretch?


  1. The blue paper looks great and I like the job you did on the borders. Lovely birthday card :)

  2. Hi! I feel it has been forever since I have visited your blog. Thanks for the sweet comment on my card on SCS. Good Luck with the challenge this is a really CUTE card!
