CSS Limited Edition Set

(This is my second post today...for my Runway Inspired card, please scroll down!)

Every year, Clear and Simple Stamps releases a special Limited Edition set during Customer Appreciation Month.  This year's set is Joy- perfect for the holidays or any time of year!  All CSS customers will receive a handmade card and a sentiment stamp.  Awesome, right?  There are also new metallic products being offered, and you can learn more about those here.

With my new set, I created a card with a matching envelope.  I used the tag die to impress the cardstock, and added a bunch of glitter!

To go along with the card, I made a matching wine bottle tag.  I wanted to mimic the embossed look, but did not have a die of the image I wanted (a wine glass).   Can you figure out how I did it??

 (I took the pic at a slight angle- when you look at it straight-on the top and bottom half line up)

I got out the jewelry wire, some pliers, and made this:

I ran it through my die cutter as I would an impression plate.  I love the thin indentation I achieved with my custom embosser!

  6. a custom impression- what a neat idea!!!!
