Butterfly Post

I needed to make some small notecards to send with a few items I'm giving away on a Facebook group so made several of these cards.

I used a stitched square die to emboss the centre of the card blank.  I stamped the image onto a snippet of white card and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I cut around the edge of the square before colouring it with Promarkers and adding a Wink of Stella to the butterfly.  The topper was then attached to the centre of the card with a foam sheet.

To make this card I used:
     4" x 4" white matt card blank
     Craft Stamper Magazine 'Butterfly Post' stamp
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Versafine Majestic Blue ink
     Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder
     Promarkers
     Wink of Stella

I am entering the following challenges:
     Addicted to CAS - Emboss (I've used both wet and dry embossing)
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Something beginning with 'P' (I have chosen Post)

This is so elegant and pretty and love the stamped collage look with the butterfly coloured in that beautiful purple, and the dry embossed frames using your stitched dies looks great as a frame Kath. x

I love this card, Kath! Photos never really show off the elegance of heat embossing, so I'm imagining this card to be extra elegant in person. Thank you so much for participating with us @ ATCAS!

Hi Kath

Really love this .. .. great embossing and such a cute little image.

Right up my street! I thought it was going to be a teeny tiny one to start with but your notelets are just a fraction bigger .. .. a teeny, tiny plus!
LOL!!

Love Jules xx
