Tag Card

I watched Ashley's video on youtube, yall know I do that a lot lol, and was inspired to make this card. You really have to check out her video, her card is so much better than mine. She used some Martha Stewart tags, I didnt have any like that so I just cut some out at 3 inches on my cricut with the Sophisticated cartridge. I laid them on a a2 size card blank, all the way to the top and left edge, cut rest of card off. I used kraft to make the tags and decorated them before I put them on the card.
If you can tell, I took several pics trying to get it show up. I used some plastic that came with my cartridges, you know the protective outer part that you have to use a hacksaw to get into to get to your cartridge casing lol. I used double sided tape to hold it to my mat, then cut out butterfly shape and flower. They are both from the Sophisticated cartridge. The flower was three parts, I did the middle with the clear. I cut another butterfly from orange and then put the clear one over it and added jewels down the center to cover up the adhesive, I only stuck the clear one in the middle. I used a butterfly brad for the center of the flower. I added tiny button brads to the bottom of the card. I tied twine into bows at the top of the tags.
