Created for: traciac's card front swap for Milwaukee Regionals group 1, each was personalized with the participant's real name on one side of the tag and their SCS name on the other.
**Tip: The chipboard letters/numbers were embossed to give the look of patent leather. (turned out pretty cool if you ask me!) Here are two tips for embossing chipboard - 1) do it twice to give it a clean and smooth look, letting each layer cool completely; 2) the embossing powder goes EVERYWHERE, so put it inside something before you turn on your heat tool.
