Make It Monday #299: Sentiment Windows

Hello there everyone!  Thanks for joining me today as I share my card for this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge with you.  I've used this die cut window technique before and I knew I could create something quick and easy for the challenge.  I've been working on a few fall projects, but had not made anything yet for Halloween.  It's only another few short week away!  Yikes!  Time to make a spooky card.  I wanted to keep it simple.  Just some stenciling, a peek-a-boo window, a stamped sentiment, three little stamped and die cut bats, and a bit of twine and this card was complete.

As I mentioned, I have been working on some things for fall.  And ever since I ordered Betsy Veldman's Tag Along Kit, I've become obsessed with creating tags.  I love the tag die included with the kit.  It seems to be just the perfect size and I really like the scalloped look at the top of the tag.  I started off making Christmas tags, but later decided that I needed to work on my autumn projects first.  I wanted to use some of the papers I already had, so I pulled out my Color Pop:  Autumn set and played around with the papers, dies, and stamps until I came up with these beauties.

Imagine these tags tied onto treat bags filled with snack mix, cinnamon pecans, or candy. 
 They could also be wrapped around homemade pumpkin bread.
