Butterfly Tag Birthday Card – Tag You’re It! Challenge #26

I can’t pass up a challenge with a butterfly tag for inspiration, can I? And I apologize for the angled shots in this post – the only way I could get the blue foil to show was to shoot a bit from the side.

The current Tag You’re It! Challenge (#26) has this cute tag for inspiration:


I used my laminator to foil a bit of Heidi Swapp MINC sheet and die cut a butterfly from the foiled piece. The butterfly tag is stamped, the dotted tag is DSP.

And, I made it into a card.

  1. No need to apologize for the angled shot, because WOW- that butterfly is one shimmery, glimmery beauty! You’ve desinged an eye-catching take on Marybeth’s tag…gorgeous! The pairing of your tag with the striped background: brilliant! Thank you for sharing your creativity in the Tag You’re It gallery!

  2. Oh this is so pretty and I love the foil butterfly! Captured beautifully in your photo! The colorful polka dots on the second layer are fun and I love that you placed this on a striped card. Love it! Thanks for joining us at Tag You’re It, Kathy! I love your take on my tag.

  4. Your foiling technique has improved. Lovely.

    • Thanks, Terry. This one involved no stamping – only laminating/die cutting. The ones with stamping are still hit or miss. (and I get frustrated wasting supplies, so I put it away for a bit)

  5. I love your tag design as a tag, Kathy, and I also love it on the card! The foil butterfly is so sparkly! I love the polka dot under tag and your embossed sediment! Enjoy your day and thank you for playing in the TYI challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  6. So pretty! That blue foil makes for one terrific butterfly! Thanks for joining us at Tag You’re It!
