Totally Tags 'N ATC's at My Papercrafting World

Today is another fun tag and ATC challenge day over at MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD! This week we are challenged to use Purple - (like that is a real challenge??) :-)  I used the Picturesque Cricut cartridge to create my tag this week:





This is the butterfly tag cut at 3.24". The very bottom layer is cut using the Hide/contour feature on my Gypsy so it will be a solid layer.  The largest butterfly was a separate cut and I sized it at 2.06" and it fits perfectly even though it is not "technically" a layer on this tag. Pretty cool, huh? :-)

This is how all the layers look before assembly.


Some close-ups. I simply added the cut-outs over the top of where they were cut out! I just put adhesive down the middle of each butterfly so I could bend the wings up for added dimension! I just love how it turned out! Hope you all do too!  Make sure to stop over at MY PAPERCRAFTING WORLD to check out all the other beautiful purple tags and to play along by making your own tag! HAPPY SPRING!

Lovely Tag! I love using the 'negative' cuts for things, too! The faux-stitching, also! ;-}

Love the layers on this. Having the shadow pieces gives the butterflies so much more dimension. Thanks for showing all the pieces laid out too.
The faux stitching really added alot of pop too. Thanks for being part of the Tag N' ATG hop.
