It is already May , thoughts of flowers butterfly's and soft colors ! I made some spring tags !Using some of the great products from Altered Pages !

Using a die cutting machine such as the Zing , cut a tag from colored card stock , about 6 1/4 by 3 1/4 " . Using card stock of color choice emboss with embossing folder , I used dots folder, then cut out a butterfly shape of your choice with die machine or by hand.

Using Versa Mark stamp pad stamp image of your choice on tag , then using clear embossing powder and heat set . Using stamp pad of choice and a inking tool ink portions of tag with at least two colors

Add your floral image ( Klein Postcards ) with edges distressed and inked, using mini clear Squares adhere your image on tag .

Choose your Edges Mini Boarder's and cut desired size , then ink edges and if large enough stamp a sentiment on it. Adhere with Mini Clear Squares.Using Glimmer Mist or any other glitter product spray your paper florals and when dry add them to your tag where you like , layering the paper flowers and adding a half pearl in center of each flower. Add your butterfly , you can also ink the butterfly for a more distressed look and also brings out the embossing more.

Hope you enjoyed the post !! And have fun creating !!

Gorgeous as always! I like edge techniques and using the hole reinforcements with your own cut tag. Have a happy Mother's day!
