Butterfly Tag

I made this tag for my sister's birthday present and am entering the Allsorts 'Tags' challenge, the Die-Cut Divas 'Anything But a Card' challenge and Die Cuttin' Divas 'Anything Goes' challenge. The paper, card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer to I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.



Stamp: Ultimate Crafts (magazine freebie)
Dies: Creative Expressions 'Pierced Tags', Memory Box 'Pippi Butterfly'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Imperial Purple
Colouring: Purple Promarker
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Cream and purple pearlescent card, Lili of the Valley 'Baskets & Bunnies' paper, white ribbon

I attached a snippet of paper onto cream card before die cutting and embossing the largest tag.  I stamped the sentiment on the lower edge and highlighted it with a Wink of Stella.  I die cut the butterflies and attached them above the sentiment.  To finish I coloured a snippet of white ribbon with a purple Promarker and attached it to the top of the tag.

Holly Tree

I stamped the tree onto green swirl paper, trimmed around the outer edge and attached it to the front of the card.  I stamped the holly leaves and pot onto red paper and the bow, baubles and star onto gold paper.  These were all fussy cut and attached to the card.  To fnish I highlighted the bow, baubles, star and swirls with a Wink of Stella.
