Embrace...

Metal rimmed tags! These small embellishments are great for adding that touch of metal to any creation. The great thing about this embellishment is that it's also easy enough to "go faux". You can emboss a thin silver circle, or use metallic paper and circle punches to get the same concept. If you are stuck for inspiration, a great blog to check out is Jennifer McGuire's. She uses these tags so magnificently, I'm sure it's what inspired me to feature these small items in the first place! Here's an older card that I did for a June challenge. I really like the touch of silver on the red and white card. It just serves as a nice way to separate the larger star from the rest. Supplies: Stamps by Verve, Paper by World Win and Stampin' Up!, Ink by Stampin' Up! Metal Tags from Dunwoody Booth
