I fell in love with these stamps as soon as I saw them. And I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw the tabs!

Graphic 45's Secret Garden
1/8 in wide cream ribbon
Spectrum Noir marker EB6
Corrugated cardboard (scrap)
white acrylic paint
Pink & Main stamps
Cut card front piece to 4.25 x 5.50. Ink the edges of this piece with the ebrush and marker; set aside.
Tear off the front of the corrugated cardboard. Shape like a gate. Lightly paint the front. Let dry.
Spray the edges with marker. Add the hardware.
Wrap the lace around the bottom of the card front and secure. Glue the "gate" to the card front.
Stamp 3 tabs. I stamped on the back of the papers I wanted to use and hand cut. Ink the edges (again, I used the eBrush) Using a piercing tool, pierce a 2 holes in each tab and thread the ribbon through. Secure the ribbon to the card front. Make sure there's a little ease to allow some pop up dots underneath each tab.
Add the saying/sentiment to the front using a pop dot.
Secure the card front to the card base.
Personalize as desired!
