Kraft & Black

Rosemary always inspires me to create.
When I saw her LOVELY card for the
Dynamic Duos #71-Kraft & Black-With the Option of Wet Embossing,
I knew I had to participate, since Kraft & Black is one of my favorite combinations.
AND, I love the look of Wet Embossing on cardstock.
Today, I've created a "Tag-Card" for the Challenge.

What is a Tag-Card?

As I visit blogs, I often read where others ask, "What do you do with tags?"
My answer to that question would be, "I make Tag-Cards".
A Tag-Card is made by attaching two tags together to create a card that opens.
(I usually attach mine at the top.)
The attached (or inside) tag is for writing a message to the recipient. 
If you visit my blog or my Flickr Gallery, you know that I really ENJOY making Tag-Cards.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.
My personal All-Stars for stamping are:
-Clear Embossed Background Stamps on colored paper
-"Hugs" as a sentiment
I love the colors Paulina chose.  My time was 9:52.
I was inspired by the layout of this card by Sally Traidman.
I've used the small heart in the Sketchbook Letters stamp set.
(Thank you, Jayne, for this stamp set.)

Stamps:  (Hero Arts)-Square Pattern, Tiny Ink Spots, Sketchbook Letters, XO
Ink:  VersaMark, Aquamarine
Dies:  (PTI)-Tag Sale #7, Tiny Tags
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Seam Binding, Hemp Cord, Gem, Foam Adhesive

Thanks for your visit!  Happy crafting!
