Antique Poinsettia - A Tag or a Card

Start of the Layer It challenge and I'm more than ready.  I have fallen in love with the Antique Poinsettia.  I had to buy it and the matching dies.  The stamp itself is beautiful and I wanted to stamp the envelope too, just the perfect accompaniment to the tag.  It's a manila pocket tag that is part of a set with numbers outside of the pocket, counting off the numbers to 25 (you could use these as little gift tags for your child).  I guess they didn't sell well at my local stamp store, because they were in a box of super discounted items..  I distressed the card and covered that number on my tag with the poinsettia..  I found a small envelope and distressed it too.


I have to tell you that I LOVE THE CLOSE CUT.  The dies look a bit confusing at first.  The only die of this set that might give you a problem is the second to the smallest. After you find the way the second smallest die sits, you're home free and it's easy to see exactly how to place it.

Another thing I like about this set is it's only ONE stamp.  No losing little pieces.
