Oh my what fun! The 4th round of Alicia's Card Tag is now complete! It's a lot like the kids "Tag" game, but we use hand crafted/stamped cards. When you are "tagged it," you use the card of the person in line before you as inspiration to create your own card. Here's my finished card. I was inspired by Barbara's cupcake birthday theme and how she used buttons and border punches to embellish her card.
All of the stamps I used on this card are by DRS Designs. First, I colored the Cherry Top Cupcake (E463) with Copic Markers. Then I cut it out and layered it on a white cardstock circle embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I matted it again with a red cardstock circle. I stamped the Happy Birthday 3" Giga Cicle (L488) with SU! Real Red ink on white cardstock and used my Marvy Uchida Giga Circle punch to punch it out perfectly. I colored in the dots with a red Copic Marker. I stamped the Happy Moments, Happy Days sentiment (G490) on pink cardstock and used an EK Success border punch for the edges. I added this piece to a red cardstock front and added ribbon to cover the area where the pink cardstock stopped. I added the matted Giga circle to the center above the sentiment and embellished the front with small red buttons. To add a bit of dimension, I stamped the cherry a second time, colored it with Copics, cut it out and adhered it in place with foam tape. Then I added Diamond Glaze to it to give it a bit of shine.

Thanks Alicia for hosting this card game. I enjoyed it and hope to play again soon!
