Sweet 18

This tag card uses a combination of printed and stamped images to create a very pretty 18th card.  A DL card is turned into a tag shape by cutting the top two corners off to make the base card.  Some printed paper (Artilicious CD rom nature) is cut to size, leaving a tiny frame aroung the edge.  The edges of the base card and paper are tinted with Brilliance inks in matching colours.  The flowers are printed from the CD and cut out.  The edges are glittered and when dry layered up with a brad to secure them and form the centres of the flowers.  A tag is punched out of some printed paper and the edges inked. A key is stamped, heat embossed and cut out.  A greeting, a butterfly and some leaves are stamped and heat embossed onto vellum, then cut out.  The butterfly is decorated with glitter and when dry is attached to the card by the body so that the wings can be folded up to create movement.  The greeting is added to the small tag, so is the key and some ribbon.  The background is mounted onto the base card, the larger 3D flowers and the leaves are added and then the finished tag.  A few smaller flowers complete the design.
