Explanation of upcoming "Card Goals" Series

I have a series of cards to post for the next week. My aunt from out of state came for a visit and needed some more gift tag and cards to stock her up. I also need to to stock up since the only ones I had left were thank you cards to put on small gifts.
The cards are mini cards or tags and I had goals for using some supplies and that would morph into using other supplies. I often get too many things on my desk and don't know what to do with it all.

Mini card Goals:

Goal was to use up:
Jillibean Soup small sentiment cards from 6x6 paper pad. 
The Paper Studio wiggle birthday embellishments. 
Michael’s $1 bin tags. 
Name cards for what looks like a wedding seat. 

I wanted to use:
Some of the way too many Three Birds in a Row tag die cuts. 
The numerous amount of OKB tags. 
The circle tags from idk where. 
The SU stamps (cakes, presents, balloons I stamped from a friend/JDilo many years ago). 
Use brads or eyelets. 
I wanted to use buttons but that would have been a big mess to clean up. 

Then I wanted to:
Clean up the little crap on my desk. 
Try some different ways for a tag to be used. 
Have less stamp options at arms reach to prevent becoming overwhelmed. 

And try some techniques:
I wanted to heat emboss on the vellum. As well as on some of the tags. 
I heat embossed Let’s Bokeh by Lawn Fawn white on white but the tags were shiny cardstock and the circle didn’t fill in all the way. I wondered....can I stamp on top of this circle with regular ink and heat emboss with clear powder which would give it a light hint of color in the background. Yes that worked. 
I wanted to use some new border stamps to make my own background. 

So I hope you enjoy the series of mini cards. There will be some repeat tags on different posts because I used more than one goal on that card. I'm not able to type up all the processes and supplies but I still hope you will look at the pictures. If you have any questions please leave it in the comments. Thank you.
