For my project, Tweety Bird Tags, I used the new Birds of a Feather stamp set, the Birds & Branches die set and the Clouds Impression Plate.  Just a note about the impression plate – it is double-sided and large enough to completely emboss a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card front.  I used the impression plate in the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders.

Onto the card details!  I stamped a bird cage from the set in blue ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and die cut with a Circle Nestabilities die.  I then added Liquid Pearls along the edges.  Next I die cut some birdies using the matching Birds & Branches Dies.  After adhering the birdies to the bird cages I coated them with Crystal Stickles.

Then I created the tag base by embossing Bashful Blue cardstock with the Clouds Impression Plate.  I added a strip of designer paper, rounded the corners and matted on Night of Navy cardstock.  Next I stitched around the edges and then adhered a bit of pom pom trim over the designer paper and added twine and a button.  To finish the tag front I added a jumbo eyelet and threaded orange twine through it and adhered a few Tiny Twinkles rhinestones.  For the tag backing I cut a piece of Naturals White cardstock to size, stamped a sentiment, rounded the corners and added the tag front using foam dimensionals. Nicey Nice.  Do you like them?  Would you like to see more tag projects or are you getting bored with them?  Let me know!
