"Tag Buffet" Card Tutorial with "Sailing Home" Alternative!

Hi Friends! I hope you had a nice weekend! This morning it occurred to me that I hadn't shared a card I made during my Serene Stampers Team "Mystery Stamping Hour". We held our Mystery Stamping Hour during "World Card Making Day", earlier this month and as always, we had a blast! I really like today's card layout because it's incredibly versatile. The original card (from our Leaders Project Sheet Group) used the "Tag Buffet" stamp set for a lovely Christmas card. I used the same card design but switched things up by using the "Sailing Home" stamp set, the "Seabed 3D" Embossing Folder and "World of Good" Designer Series Paper:

Now here is the exact same card layout using the "Tag Buffet" stamp set and different papers:

I just love how we can take a card idea and switch it up, don't you? Scroll down for the "Tag Buffet" card tutorial....
