Butterfly card

Monday, August 1, 2011

I managed to grab a few minutes to make a card today. The butterfly stamp is from a stamp company I haven't used before, Artemio they're made in Belgium. I love painting butterflies, this one is a small tortoiseshell butterfly, I think they're only found in Europe. I colored it with acrylic paints.

The gorgeous papers are from Echo Park Victoria Gardens. I die-cut the middle using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen and I embossed the top half using cottage floral embossing folder.

The text I typed up on the computer, printed and stamped the banner shape around it using Bitty Banners by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I also made this with the Moxie Fab World Challenge Fanatical about Botanical in mind.
