Flight of the Butterfly

It's spring and time for fresh colors and butterflies! This is one of the cards I made for my Stamp-A-Stack last week; it uses a lovely and versatile set titled Flight of the Butterfly. What a fun set too! It is a "Two-Step Stamping" set where you stamp once then stamp a different stamp on top of that which is designed to add more dimension, color or detail to the first stamping. For example, I stamped the large solid butterfly in Pale Plum then stamped the flower stamp, which is the same shape and size, on top of that in a deeper color, Perfect Plum. This can easily be done with the Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement of your layers!

The Designer Paper is from the Delicate Dots package which was a Sale-A-Bration premium product. I just love the soft and spring-y colors in it and this is one of my favorite patterns in the whole package! The Eyelet Border Punch used on white cardstock to make the eye-catching border is a great finishing touch! The butterfly "trail" is one of four sentiments in the set and is stamped in Old Olive ink.
