Shabby Friday

Hello this fabulous Friday............. today I used my Crafty Secret set French Mail again. I am really loving this set because it is very versatile. I know I used it a couple weeks ago to make an elegant card and this week I have made a couple shabby/vintage birthday tags. I am always scrapping around to find a tag for a gift and I think these are sweet (with brown paper bag paper?) As you can see on the tag on the right I added a little shimmer to the tag by using my versamark and just tapping it on the card spiradically, then heat embossing it so it has a shimmery effect. Both of the cards have a little bit of stickles to give the heart and such a little shimmer as well.
Then I wanted to make a simple shabby birthday card.......... I wish it photographed a little better than this but after about 10 pictures I realized I am not a photographer (shock!) and well, it was not getting any better. So the card used the french script CB embossing folder, the French Mail stamp set for the swirlies and then I added a little bling. The sentiment is set on the Nestabilities label four.
So that is it for today: please don't forget the HEIDI's FRIEND discount code that you can use until September 10th over at ABC Toys and Crafts and get 15% off your order: the code is ABC15H.
