Birthday Tag

My niece Kayla turned 14, so I made her a tag/money holder for a present. I have a number of tag swaps I am in currently and I thought it would be a fun way to test out some design ideas. Played a lot on this one embossing, bead work, handmade flowers, stickles, border punches, alcohol inks... I put a video with more details about it on youtube: Birthday Tag

Wedding Card

The son of one of my mom's good friends got married. She asked me to make her a card. It was so bulky that it wouldn't fit in an envelope, so I ended up making a box for it out some nice bronze Martha Stewart cardstock - sorry no pic of the box.

I used this beautiful Prima Victorian pin bouquet (loved this, marketed to be used on crafts or just worn as a pin), some mariposa paper, some wasau pearlescent cardstock, swarovski crystal bead (so pretty), a fiskars circle punch (too bad it only works well on lightweight papers, it is my fav toy of the moment), metal photo corners (I wish I had more of them), Tattered Angels glimmer chips, CTMH stamp & chocolate ink, and lots of glimmer mist (sea glass & walnut gold). It took far too long for me to come up with something so simple, but I am pretty pleased with the results.
