365 Cards--Day #287 Stampin' Saturday

I've come to discover that many of us 365 participants don't always like to follow the rules completely--teehee Today--I'm going to be one of those rule breakers, but I don't think it's a huge offence  ;) 
   Day 287's challenge is the following:
 "Every aspect of the card must be stamped - no patterned paper (although you don't have to create a       fancy stamped background), and you must have a stamped sentiment. No other embellishments unless        you stamp those, too - like a DIY sort of thing."

So . . . my creation does use just stamping (including sentiment), but I didn't quite create a "card"; well, I could argue that they're sort of like mini cards . . . the kind you attach to a gift (aka--gift tags).  I made this set of 10 last night  for one of my son's preschool teachers.  I'm about to go make another 10 for his other teacher (I may try a different style).  They're cut into a tag shape, but you could easily tranfer the designs onto small 2"x2" folded gift cards.  Also, I did add the cord for the tag ties, but I couldn't really stamp them--the cord was already brown; any distressing wouldn't show up.

Stamps: Fiskars Kimberly Poloson and TPC Studio.  The sentiments are Studio GInk: Colorbox Olive and Cranberry; Distress Ink, Walnut Stain  Other:  Tags cuts with Cricut George cartridge; Elmers braiding cord

Thanks 4 your time!
