Butterfly Tag Card

Good evening. Here is a card for two challenges:
Crafty Catz #77 - Embossing
The Stampman challenge #20 - Embossing

The base card started out A5 in size and was cut out with a Grand Nestability and the edges of the yellow card were tinted with Distress inks. The mat was cut with a smaller size of Grand Nestie. This was ready embossed card and the embossing was enhanced with Distress ink.

The lower tag was first coloured with Distress ink and then embossed in a cuttlebug embossing folder.

The top tag was coloured with distress inks, and stamped with a Stampman Butterfly and flourishes by Sheena Douglass. All of these were stamped using Versamark and embossed with Moonglow embossing powder.

As a final touch the buttons were made from Fimo polymer clay which was embossed with a stamp to give the textured finish.
