A bright vintage 'Star' birthday tag


Here's tag #2 in the 'Vintage Doesn't Have to be Beige' series (see tag #1 here). As with the first tag, I used an original image from the February 1955 issue of Woman's Home Companion.


I broke in my new Nellie's star dies, using them to frame the model's face and hold the sentiment, added some buttons, a little ribbon and voila!


The paper is from Sassy Design's Newport digital paper pack. The sentiment font is Birds of Paradise.


I used a French sentiment for the front, and English on the back.

*Crafty Tip* Think of using your stack dies to create frames in shapes other than rectangular or square.
