Seeded Paper Earth Day tag

A quick post today just to show you a little fun with the Cricut Imagine...... I've been printing and cutting Printable Seeded Paper.  There are so many great Imagine images to use on this paper, for any occasion.... showers, weddings, birthdays, holidays, etc.

Below is the printed image on the seeded paper.

and here is the cardstock back piece.

This one is perfect for Earth Day (April 22).  The heart shaped earth is from the Imagine Better Together cartridge.  I Print/Cut it on my seeded paper at 3", then chose the same image at 3.2" and flood filled it with a coordinating pattern from the same cartridge and print/cut it from cardstock. I cut this layer to put behind the fragile seeded paper cut.  This particular seeded paper is quite thin.   I  punched holes in the tops and ran a hemp cord through them.  Now I have a tag appropriate for Earth Day that I can incorporate into a card or hang on a gift.  When ready to plant, the seeded image can be torn off and planted in a pot or garden.  This particular paper is annual flowers, but I know they come in perennials, wildflowers, herbs, etc. 

Where to get plantable paper:  Google Seeded Paper or Printable Plantable paper or something like that... you'll come up with all kinds of sources.
