Butterfly Love...

Hi Everyone!

I hope you have all been enjoying the DT makes this month and getting some ideas and inspiration for layering on your creations!
Today I am sharing some mini "moo" sized gift cards - perfect for attaching to little gifts!
They are quick and easy to make and you can use any Blank Page Muse stamps you have on hand ad you can make them any size you like - I like the mini size - they are nice and cute and they were perfect for my little jar of bath salts!
Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamp Set: Heart of Nature Butterflies Bees by Donna Gray
Blank Page Muse Stamp: "Love" word Dandelion Wishes Set or ay other little word stamp
Embossing Pad and fine Black & White Embossing Powder
Black card - cut to 140mm x 28mm plus extra black card
Scrap of painty card - cut to 66mm x 25mm
Small piece of white card/paper to glue inside gift card for writing greeting
Embellishments: string/twine and small piece muslin
Tools: heat gun, ruler, scissors, knife, glue, double sided tape or glue stick, hole punch
Instructions:
Cut your black background card to size and score in the middle and fold in half.

Cut your "painty" card to just smaller than the front of the base cards so when it is ready to adhere it leaves a nice black border around the outside.


Next step is to stamp and emboss all the card elements. Use the garland flowers to stamp on the painty card with theblack embossing powder. Stamp the small butterfly onto black card and emboss with white powder and fussy cut. Stamp the "love" word onto black card and emboss in white and free hand cut the word.


Glue the embossed painty card to the gift card front and then arrange and glue your butterfly, muslin cloth and word to the front.


Use a small hole punch and punch a hole in the top corner of the card to attach twine.

Hope you have enjoyed my embossed and layered gift tags - a perfect way to personalise your gifts - even better if your gifts are also handmade!!



Have a wonderful week!
Happy stamping!
