Tag Card with's Exclusive Dies

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a tag card featuring's exclusive dies. reached out to me asking if I would like to review the dies and so I received the dies in exchange for my honest opinion about them. I am working with the nested tags and nested stars dies. I decided to create a tag card by cutting two tags and then scoring the top of one and adhering them together. For more information on how I created the project check out the video below.

I really liked that the tag dies came with two options for adding the holes to the top of the tags. I felt like it gave more bang for the buck and adding the holes was super simple because of the design. The size range in the die sets makes them great for a variety of projects including cards, scrapbook pages or home decor. I found the dies cut easily through the thick cardstock that I used. 

Disclosure: As always affiliate links are used when possible and these dies were sent to me for review.
