A Bingo Birthday Tag

Here's a tag I made for my dad's birthday present.  I packaged the gift in a large kraft gift bag, so these colors complimented it well.  To make my tag, I used Silhouette Studio.  I started with a tag shape that I had designed in one of my Kerri Bradford classes.  I then measured the size of the bingo stamp from My Creative Time's Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp set.  I sized two rounded rectangles slightly larger than the stamp, arranged them how I wanted them and welded them to the base of the tag.  So the back of my tag is actually the exact same shape as the front (it doesn't just look like a regular tag shape with some things hanging off the edges).  After cutting, I ran the green layer through my Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes embossing folder.

I used the Silhouette to cut out the bingo cards, using papers from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found 2 Breeze collection.  I then stamped them with the bingo stamp, and spelled out my sentiment using the letter stamps included in Anyday Bingo & Crossword.  A little martini glass in the free space finished it off!
