The Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set has beautiful butterflies with a 3D effect, and the one I chose for The Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team theme. Can you guess? It’s birds, bees and butterflies!
I began today’s sepia creation with a stenciled “shrub” for the butterflies. The shrub is actually a tree from the Sweet Silhouettes Die Set, which I cut from Cardstock. Then, using it as a stencil, I placed the tree on Very Vanilla Cardstock, and “sponge daubed” Soft Suede Ink on top.
Next, I stamped three butterflies from Butterfly Wishes; two directly on the card front, and the third on a separate piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. Sticking with the monochromatic theme, I used Soft Suede Ink. The Butterfly Duet Punch was used for cutting the third butterfly, which I placed on a Dimensional for true 3D flying.
The sentiment is also from Butterfly Wishes, “It was a perfect day because of you,” also stamped in Soft Suede Ink.
