If you've arrived here from Teresa's blog, you are on the right track. If not, you might want to visit the Waltzingmouse Makes Blog so you don't miss a stop.



I have a niece getting married this month, and I thought it would be a perfect time to make a card for her using one of the tags from the Folding Tag die set.  I diecut the tag and then embossed the "Mr. and Mrs." sentiment, from the My Heart set, onto it.  After that, I dry embossed each end of the tag using a horizontal embossing folder, and scored above and beneath the sentiment.  I attached it to my card along with some feathers that I die cut using the WMS Fine Feathers die set.  I had stamped the Fine Feathers with Versamark onto Vellum before die cutting.  Lastly, I added an intricate die cut to the background, some Shabby Chic Flowers I made using ribbon and felt, some sheer flowers, rhinestones, and a beaded pick.




Here's a close-up of the tag so you can see the embossing detail.




I absolutely LOVE the feathers from the Fine Feathers set.  They are so intricately detailed, and emboss beautifully!  I also love how close the die cutting is.  It really helps make the feathers stand out.

That's it for me today.  Next up on the hop, is the super sweet and uber talented Kelly!!

     Happy Stamping my friends!!
