I really loved the way it turned out. Since I didn't have a pre-cut tag that size, I made my own from cardstock and backed it with chipboard. I was swapping tags with a sweet lady that lives in Iowa, so I used an old Atlas page of Iowa on the background. The "moments" sentiment and the butterfly and postmark were embossed with black embossing powder. The sentiment "follow your passion, let that be your destination" was stamped in brilliant blue Stampin' Up! Ink onto white cardstock and then words cut out and glued on the tag. The ink matched the blue on the atlas paper perfectly. I used Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings Sizzix Embosslits. I just LOVE how they cut and emboss and that it has 4 different sized butterflies. The flowers were punched out of both blue Stampin' Up! Cardstock as well as atlas paper and layered with a Pearl embellishment in the center. The leaves behind the flowers were punched with the Stampin' Up! Bird Builder Punch. I daubed a little black ink on the edges of the butterfly and part of the embossed portions so they looked a little more "antiquey". I added a strip of washi tape to the bottom, glued on some sequins here and there and added a black fiber ribbon and that was it. I was pleased with how it turned out. I hope you like it and that you will try one as well.
Thanks for looking! Stay crafty and cherish your blessings!
