Butterfly Birthday Card with Couture Creations

Happy Wednesday!  Kate here with a brand new birthday card and tutorial for you today.  I used Couture Creations 3 in 1 Collection: Butterfly Notes again this week.  If you go through all my Guest Designer posts for CropStop this month you will see how easy it is to create a diversified collection of cards with this one collection. 

The focal point for this bright, feminine birthday card is the embellished tag.  To create this embellished tag, I started with two Core'dinations Core Tags with the metal grommets punched out. 

Step 1: Emboss colored tag with Couture Creations Plush Embossing Folder
I used my Big Shot to emboss and die cut. 

Step 2: Die cut Spellbinders Label 4 in empty space around the embossed image.  
Step 3: Sand the embossed image and edges where the tag was die cut with Core'dinations Sand It Gadget.

Step 4: Place Couture Creations Double-Sided Tape on the back of the embossed tag.  Make sure you are generous with the tape!  I trimmed my tape to fit all the small nooks on the tag. 

Step 5: Peel back tape and adhere the embossed tag to the plain white tag. 

Step 6:  Making the butterflies!  Start by covering a piece of white Core'dinations Cardstock with Couture Creations Double-Sided Tape.  My piece was 3"x 4", just big enough to die cut several of the butterflies. 

Step 7: Using the smaller of the butterfly dies from Couture Creations Butterfly Notes, die cut several butterflies out of the taped cardstock from Step 6. 

Step 8:  Peel back the tape on the die cut butterflies and generously apply Distress Glitter.  
Step 9: Add Couture Creations Gemstones to the glittered butterflies.  

Step 10: Stamp your sentiment where the white background tag shows. 
Step 11:  Shape your decorated butterflies and adorn your tag with them.  

Step 12:  Add embellished tag to card base using plenty of Couture Creations Double Sided Tape.
Step 13: Give finished birthday card to the birthday girl and watch her smile!
