Thank You

Like most of us, I was excited to use a few of my new craft items and I've have managed to combine a couple of them into some large tag shaped cards.

I fell in love with these oversized Crealies stitched tag dies as soon as I opened them. They were a Xmas present from a lovely blog pal who I won't name in case she's shy, (but thank you sweetie).

I've used them to showcase my new Lili of the Valley critters from the newly released trios sets. There are 4 nesting tags in the set and this is the second smallest.  I thought they could also be used for bookmarks as well as standard tags, but these ones are folded into standing cards.

I've decorated my first tag with some gorgeous satin ribbon, flowers and pearls from The Ribbon Girl, and kept the second one flat so that it can maybe double up as a keepsake bookmark.

Oh wowwwwwwwwww love what you did with these dies! I am glad you love them! Both are really cute and thanks for the idea to use them as a card with 2 tags behind each other, I hadn't thought about that.

Ooooh, I expect to be seeing a lot more of these gorgeous tag dies...as you say, they look very versatile. I love the idea of using them as shaped cards and this pair of cards are beautiful...or bookmarks as yes, they would work well for that too!
Thanks also for sharing this fabulous project with us at The Ribbon Girl!
Big hugs, Kat xx
