Butterfly Card and Poppy Tag

Here are two projects that I've made for the GECKO GALZ Design Team using the Card Toppers Ephemera Sheet.
I have some acetate that has gold butterflies embossed on it so I coloured the back of some with alcohol ink and then attached it to a white card blank with some gold brads. I wrapped gold thread round the topper then matted it onto black card and then gold card. The butterfly is cut from another topper. I attached some black stamens and some gold beads on the body.
I started of by cutting the tag out of some patterned card then I stamped the poppy silhouette onto card and attached it to the tag. With a punch I cut some notches out of the corners of the topper then wrapped some gold thread around it. I then matted it onto some black card and attached it to the tag. I made the flower out of tissue paper and attached it to the tag with a brad. The last things that I did was to add some black sticky backed gems and some ribbon.
The stamps that I used are by Elusive Images.
