With Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge in mind I found a large snippet of mint glitter card which I cut just slightly larger to leave a narrow border round the edge when layered up. The challenge asks for margins and although not a huge one there is a margin round the layer showing just a little of the white square base card so hope this is OK.
I found another snippet of white card which I cut with the Nellie Snellen corner die, the smaller of the two. The die cuts into the card and before cutting the second corner I worked out how much space I would need for the sentiment before cutting the other end. I then cut in a straight line at either side of the two cut corners to make the tag shape. I cut a second from a snippet of the mint coloured glitter card and cut it across the middle so I could stagger the two layers and have a bit of green showing beyond the top white layer.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on to the tag using Versamark and some WOW Silver Embossing Powder and adhered it using a piece of thin foam tape to give it a bit of height.
Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly, just the pretty top layer, and after fancy cutting attached it to the corner of the tag using a small piece of the foam tape.
Thank you as usual for all the interest you show in my blog. See you soon.
