Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday Die Day this week is focusing on tags,
Fancy Framed Tags Four.

There are 3 designs of tags in this set which have inserts so you can make
solid tags or die cut with the aperture as below.
The approximate measurements are:

Tag 1: ¾ x 1½”
Tag 2: 1⅜ x 2″
Tag 3: 2⅜ x 3⅛”

This is how they look cut/embossed.
I decided to decorate envelopes this week, the poor envelope
gets rather neglected!
Using an M-Bossabilities folder - Enchanted,
insert the entire envelope inside and run through your Grand Calibur -
remember you will need a Raspberry Spacer Plate.

I die cut the middles from two of the tags and stamped a sentiment.
Positioned the tags on the bottom left corner, on one envelope I attached
some ribbon first. 
Finishing touch, tiny flower and leaf - Marisa's Bouquet and black pearl.

This would work well in other colourways,
great for invitations, gift cards and more.

I'm at home this weekend, no travelling to demo which is probably a good thing.
I'm now on the mend so hoping to catch up with jobs....there's a lot of them :)

Talking of demos - more dates added, I'm in Lyndhurst, Hampshire in October and returning to
Cheshire in September.  Next  weekend I'm demoing in Nottingham.
Please stop by the Ambassador Tour page for all the details.

Have a lovely weekend and please stop by's a giveaway!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, I'm glad you are on the mend, but don't overdo it too soon. A great idea to emboss and decorate envelopes, I'm going to be having a go at this. Have a nice relaxing weekend.

Good morning Christine
What a lovely idea to decorate an envelope. After spending so much time creating card I normally just stuff it into a white envelope but now I am going to look at my envelopes in a different way. Thanks for the idea.
Enjoy your day

Lovely crafty project-i usually forget about the envelope.

Please continue to rest as much as you can this next week as it sounds like you're going to be busy the following weeks.

Morning Christine
This is a lovely idea today, and really changes a plain old envelope into something very classy.
So pleased to hear you're feeling better, the weekend at home will do you the world of good I'm sure.
Emerald Crafts is a lovely shop in Lyndhurst, it's like an Aladdin's cave of craft! I always pop in there when we visit the New Forest 😊
Enjoy your day.

Hi Christine
Lovely tags today, and I love what you've done with them. I see your at Long Crendon and Lyndhurst in October. I'll see in I can visit my sister in law in Bournemouth that weekend and come and visit in Lyndhurst. Emerald Crafts is a lovely shop. As we're visiting I won't be able to bring Sandra with me. She'll be disappointed with that.

Hello Christine,
Don't go mad with the jobs, they'll be there when you're ready to do them!
What a great idea to do up envelopes. A decorated envelope always makes the card inside seem so much nicer and more elaborate.
