Butterfly Tag


I've used the MOJO201 sketch today for this card. You could choose to do a round or a square sketch and round sounded good to this girl!

To create the round base, I used my largest Lacy Circle Spellbinder's die. To make the round base I used a piece of black card stock that was 10" x 5". Next I scored it so that I had a 5" x 5" square. Leave your scored line just inside the top of your die, that way you've got an edge that holds the circles together.

On top of that I layered a circle of designer paper that had been cut with a round nestie. On top of that is another circle in a different designer paper cut in the same size. Then I took and cut half of it away.

Two rectangles of cardstock were cut 2 3/4" x 1 1/4". The two rectangles have been dry embossed with the same embossing folder. A piece of 5/8" grosgrain ribbon goes over top of the black rectangle and behind the green one.

I tied a simple bow in the two tone ribbon and layered it over a tag that I made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a punch. To color the butterfly on the tag, I simply inked up the side of the embossing folder that protrudes, and thereby getting the reverse embossed look. Two little buttons are the final touches for this card.
