Butterfly Tag **Paper House & Die~Namites Dies & Xyron**

Who does not love purple?  It has such a presence of softness that works perfectly with black to give it a hard edge.  This is the feeling I wanted creating this tag, soft but hard, a wonderful juxtaposition of feelings and tones.

I added lots of layers here in paper, pearls, rhinestones, mesh, ink, stickers, and die-cuts to create the complexity but simpleness of this fun tag.  This could be used on a present, instead of a card, on a gift bag, or  just something pretty to sit on my work table.

I used the wonderful Die~Namites Die "Swirly Butterfly" cut out of Paper House purple paper and inked the edges in black.  I then ran it through my Xyron 1.5 Create-a-Sticker to make it sticky.

I cut out a second butterfly in white cardstock and layered the purple butterfly on top of the white one.

I then ran the layered butterfly through the Xyron again to stick it to the tag.

For the background of the tag I used strips from the 12x12 paper from Paper House and layered them on the tag using all the varying color of purple and the fun metallic swirly parts.
