Usually I start with a white tag, but this time I thought I'd try something different and I used blue cardstock. I inked the background on with different colors of Distress Ink and a mask that I cut using my Cameo.
Next, I stamped the sentiment on using the Stamps of Life's birthday4Cookie stamp set. I cut the birthday hat using the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge and put a gold asterisk from a set of Thickers on top. Next, I glued on some of the awesome etsy enamel dots that I talked about in my last post, and the popped the whole thing up on foam adhesive. Too bad the next family birthday isn't until November! ;)
