My Very Vanilla card base is  5.5 x 4.25, scored on the side.  I
layered Riding Hood Red (top) and Basic Black on the bottom.  The black
received a little jazz from a Scallop Edge Punch and three gold brads.

top border was heat embossed in gold on Very Vanilla using Stampin’
Up!’s Beautiful Borders stamp set.  Basic Black 1/4″ Grosgrain offers a
luxurious accent.  The patterned paper on the lower half is from
Stampin’ Up!’s Bella Rose Designer Series.

Details for the
“metal” tag are included in my Faux Metal Tag Tutorial above.  It
combines the Cute and Curly holiday stamp, gold embossing powder, heat
tool and the Curly Label Punch.  TIP: 
You could use the same process to make silver tags with Silver
Embossing Powder and Brushed Silver card stock.  The tag is propped up
on Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered to Very Vanilla card stock matted
on Basic Black.

Both rows of Gold Brads were lined up with precision using the Template
and Paper Piercer from Stampin’  Up!’s Crafter’s tool kit.
