Flowers and Showers Gift Tag

I used the tag feature on my Cricut Picturesque cartridge for the first time.
It really has some cute tag cuts.
This one actually has three flowers cut from it and I used CCR to hide the top flower to make room for the umbrella.
The finished tag measures 5 x 2.5 in.

I have challenged myself to use things from my stash whenever possible.
All of the paper I used was from my scraps including the pattern paper.
I've had the buttons and embroidery thread for years.
I must admit the floral ribbon is new to my stash this year but all I had was solid ribbon so I bought some with patterns on them. It was about a month ago and I bought them on sale so they technically could count. lol.

*Tag cut at 2.5 in. from the Cricut Picturesque cartridge.
*Umbrella cut at 3 in. from the Cricut B Is For Boy cartridge.
*Raindrops cut at .75 in. from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge.
*Creative Imaginations pattern paper.
*Holiday Inspirations floral ribbon.
*Buttons and DMC embroidery thread bows.
*Faux stitching drawn using a Gelly Roll pen.

Thanks for stopping by.
Come back real soon!
