Cow's It Going

Happy Friday!!!  It's time for a new challenge from the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, the challenge is: Tag, You're It!

Here is my card for your inspiration:
Oh, my!!  Isn't this the cutest thing!??  I LOVE this little cow!  I created this tag using my favorite technique for tags: using up scraps!  And these are not just normal scraps, no, no, no, these are the little scraps that attach your patterned papers into the binding of the pack.  (See the photo below.)
The tag die I tend to use is the perfect width to use slightly less than half of these strips of paper.  I added adhesive to the entire tag, layer the strips side to side down the tag and then trim off the excess.  Easy as pie!  I was even able to use two little tiny scraps along the bottom edge!
Then, all I had to do was color and fussy cut the cow, stamp the sentiment on the die cut banner and adhere them both along with some die cut hearts.  I punch a hole at the top and added an eyelet and voila, done!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of the challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. 

Stamps: MFT "The Whole Herd" cow and Cardz TV sentiment (but I couldn't find it in the store)
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" tag die and stitched banner and "Tag Builder #5" little hearts
