Creative Use of a Border Die

Hello friends! 
I am popping in with a post about using this awesome die from Altenew.
It is designed to line up the inside of the envelope.
from: ALTENEW

Shop Simon Says Stamp here  

This die set has so much to offer. I only used the star die
I started out with die cutting the stars right in the middle of the tag.

Normally I would die cut it on the edge, but I thought it would be nice to try something different.
Once I did that, I layered another piece of card stock underneath.

I added some textures with Silver embossing paste.

(note: I have tried other silver embossing paste. But this silver embossing has great texture and shine. It lasts and does not dry up like the others)
and
Altenew HALFTONE Stencil ALT1627
Halftone Stencil (shop Altenew here, Simon Says Stamp here)
I think Halftone Stencil is my all time favorite stencil... just saying.

I also used Darice Sparkle Tape (Silver) to die cut the stars. The sentiment is from Night Before Christmas.
 I think I  barely touched the surface for the Envelope Liner Die Set.

Clever girl...and such a lovely tag. Like the way you've use the stencil. Good to know there's an embossing paste that doesn't dry up, too.

Those stencils are wonderful and you put them to good use. Very pretty tag, love the paste and I agree the 'half tone' stencil is excellent. Hope your day is wonderful.
