Love the vellum along with the woodgrained tag. Would never have thought to put those two "ingredients" together but it works beautifully!

Happy New Year, Thanks for the opportunity to win. Love the inspiration, gorgeous tag/gift card holder

Love the idea of putting the pocket on the back for the card. I've never decorated the back of my tags - just used plain paper so I could write to/from on it - but it would make them more special. It was a beautiful tag. Love the heat embossing. Thanks for sharing.

Sue D said...

So pretty--I like all the dimension and sparkle.

Linda, I've been singing your praises on the HC FB page and sent in an e-mail to HC with an order. I was absolutely BLOWN away by your November 26 Thanksgiving card, and HAD to check out US Artquest prills and had some Lindy's Stamp Gang two-toned embossing powder from a few years ago, and placed an order with them for some of their Starburst sprays, all because of that WONDERFUL card!!! I hope that you are creating projects using HC for a LONG time, Linda!!! You definitely made me add to my order!!! :)

These tags are just GORGEOUS, and I do love sparkle, so these are just my style. :) I absolutely LOVE your homemade stick pin, it really adds to the tag.

I think you have such talent, and can go as far as you'd like in stamping and card-making--the world is your oyster, Linda. I look forward to seeing what you create, just love your work!!!

Best wishes, Joanne
