From Rags to Riches? No, It Is Tags to Wishes!

Hello!  I had three kits left from my last class, so I decided to turn the three tags into cards that I could send!  After all, pieces were already cut and stamped, I just had to do a little creative creating. 
The first tag was the snow globe penguin tag (you will see it below).  I decided I would want to add it to a card base, but it took up most of the front of the card, so I thought of a card that I taught back in March, seen here. This card has a pop-up easel in the middle of the card.  It is perfect to showcase the snow globe!  Let me show you with instructions to follow.  Enjoy!

Making this folded card is super simple.  All you do is make a regular A-2 size fold-over card.  Cut 
1 1/4" on either end only up to the score line.  Glue these two down to base.  (On closed card, you see the red/white pattern paper strips). Score just the middle section at 2" from the top fold.  This creates your easel. I added black cardstock here, so you can see this behind the snow globe when the card is closed.  The snow globe is only adhered on the before portion of the score line.  I popped up the inside sentiment, creating a stop for the globe.

Next, is the ornament tag turned into ornament card ... enjoy!

As you can see, my card is very much like my tag.  Really, the only differences is that I made a larger aqua panel, and extended the sentiment red/cream panels to take up more space on the card.  This sketch is actually a variation of one that will be next week's sketch with Debbie.

The third tag is a round tag, which I originally thought I would leave as a round card, but then changed my mind and made the circles a little smaller to fit on a card and this is the result.  Enjoy!

The card base pattern paper is the backside of the pink snowflake paper and I had just enough to make these three cards.  And the ribbon is not the exact same color, but it works!
