It's Amy T here with a card to share:

Why yes, I do love the 

There are so many possibilities!

I've been lovin' my many vellum bags lately...I trimmed off the flap on this one and slipped the tag inside...

I did a bunch of masking on this one to give you the sense that the cups/saucers are stacked...I'll let you in on a secret, my girl helped me figure out the masking part of it.


If you were to stamp this tag, would you start from the top or the bottom?

My Answer:

Typically I'd start at the bottom.  

That was my 'problem'...starting at the top and working down lets you mask off the saucer.

Tone-on-Tone stamping gives you the opportunity to then add the sentiment.  The cups/saucers add to the tag, not take away from the sentiment.

I love texture and am always trying to incorporate it into my projects.  Big fan of cork and that little smidge on the top adds quite a bit to the tag...finishing it off with Timeless Twine's Aqua Delight makes it so the tag could easily become a bookmark!
