Paris Shabby Chic Card & Gift Tag

Hi There. Here's another Paris Shabby Chic Card that I said I'd be posting however I'm a little late with it!

A friend of mine and follower of my blog, Nola - with the Eiffel Tower Icon - went to Paris last year for the first time and absolutely loved it, of course! So Nola this one is for you and I hope it brings back all of those lovely moments you had in Paris. :)   Actually, have you started scrapbooking your trip yet? :)

You can tell I'm still a bit of a novice with this photographing of projects, however I am getting better. Notice no blurriness anymore? Ha, and the Sales Guy at Harvey Norman said my camera was on the way out. Thankfully for me I took it to a friend to see if he had any ideas on why all of my pictures were all of a sudden turning out blurry all the time, and, voila! He pushed a few buttons, gave me some pointers and my camera works like new again! I've just got to learn how to crop!

Hope you like the Card and Tag though. If you have any questions on how I created these 2 projects please email me and I will be happy to help. Have a great week and thank you for stopping by. Angeliki :)

Adhesive Usage Tips: 
1. You can substitute Sticky Strip for Snail on either of these two projects.

2. I used 2 Way Glue Pen for adhering Heart and Bakers Twine on both Card & Tag.

3. I used Stampin' Dimensionals for the Flag Banner on the Card, however for the Tag I adhered them flat with my 2 Way Glue Pen but you could also use Snail.
