The new Celebrate You collection with Spellbinders is so versatile! (Affiliate links used throughout; thank you for your support!) The sentiment stamps can be used all year for every event (even the holidays) and the tag dies have all the right sizes. (In fact, my husband is using two of the new tag dies for his craftsman booth at a festival next month.)
Let's Celebrate Sentiments STP-102

(Retired) Birthday Animals S4-1001 (Amazon aff.)
Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink (Amazon aff.)

I stenciled a piece of linen textured paper with the Venetian Wallpaper layering stencil, using Gold Glitter Gel for the first layer, Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink for the second layer, and White Gelly Roll Pen for the final layer.
I die cut every shape of tag, including the swallowtail tags, and embossed various sentiments in gold.
Then, I cut up the stenciled panel and assembled a few cards. For the pair of cards below, I merely added the stenciled panels with a scrap of cardboard beneath (for dimension) and strung the tags onto a gold embossed "string" (a die cut included with the tag dies).
For the smaller square birthday card, I cut down a stenciled panel, adhered flat to the card, and added the dog and bunny from Birthday Animals. I cut off the end of the tag with the hole, converting it into a swallowtail banner. I curved the banner and glued to the card.
For my final card, I created a CAS (clean and simple) design featuring the Ukrainian flag with another swallowtail tag cut into a banner.
