Make It Monday #258 - Cover Plate Tags

Hello friends.  The challenge this week at Make It Monday is a fun one where Laurie shows us how to use our cover plate dies along with our tag dies to create a fun design.  I used PTI's Butterfly Cover Plate and the Tag Sale #10 die to create a colorful tag.  I blended a piece of card stock with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress inks, and then cut with the butterfly cover plate.  Had to take a picture first before I cut it into a tag because it was so pretty:


This would have made a nice card just like it was!  But I did cut it with my tag die and glued it to a black tag and came up with this:


I really love how this came out!  Kind of reminds me of the Lisa Frank designs my girls all enjoyed when they were young.  (Yes I know, I'm dating myself!!)  I finished it with a simple embossed sentiment in white from the Tiny Tags stamp set and used some baker's twine at the top.

Make sure you check out Laurie's great video and cute, cute tags and then play along.  You can find all the info right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!

  4. Your cover plate was almost too beautiful to cut! But when you did, and then put it over the dark bg, it became a striking beauty! You captured the best color variation and shapes of your butterflies too. Well done, Miss Marcia!!!!

  6. Beautiful Marcia! I was going to say how hard it must have been to cut into that pretty cover plate image as well, but everyone beat me to it. ;0) Cutting it and putting it over the black tag is genius! It really pops and is truly stunning!!

  7. Beautifully done, Marcia! Your blended butterflies are just stunning on your black tag with the small sentiment not interfering with its beauty.

  8. Yes, I agree, Marcia...that gorgeous Butterfly CP makes a lovely card by itself, but your tag is stunning and will be so appreciated by the recipient :-)
