How About a Gift Tag?

I hope you aren’t getting tired of all my Coffee Cafe posts. I think this is the last of them for a while. Use the either the large or smaller cup from the Coffee Cafe Framelits, to make your tag.  When I was making up my samples for our Luv2stamp meeting, I decided to see if I could make up some tags with these dies, and it totally worked.

You will notice the strip of diamonds, that is Embossing Paste colored with re-inker. After it was…
