Happy Tuesday, Friends! We’re taggin’ it up with Silhouette’s Free Shape this week – a Thank You Tag. This is a great shape (actually, it’s many shapes) on its own, but I thought I’d show you how to manipulate it into a slider tag with a faux emboss detail – Ready? Let’s do this!

Step 4: For the inner tag (faux emboss) – use the rounded rectangle shape that was included, and the internal offset to create a skinny frame. When you cut, cut the inner tag and frame using the same color cardstock to achieve the faux emboss effect
