Bye, Bye Butterfly!

Today is the very last day to order this wonderful little stamp! Sadly, All a Flutter is not in the new catalog, so this, along with anything else from the Summer Mini Catalog that hasn't been included will disappear.

This is a pretty simple card that I made a few months was a challenge card, the theme was "butterflies!" The butterfly was simply stamped onto Vellum and colored with markers from the back. Mini Glue Dots are hiding behind each corner (each is behind a stamped image) to hold the layer onto the Very Vanilla CS layer.

Then, of course, there's that big bow....this time in Basic Black. The beauty of this color ribbon is that you can color the vanilla stripes with a marker, which is exactly what I did! Since there's a layer of Certainly Celery CS and that color marker was used to accent the butterfly wings, I used that same color marker to color the ribbon. Because it's in the palest color family, it isn't too dark.....this method of coloring dries almost immediately! Easy to do, just took a bit of time.

Stamps: All a Flutter, Thank You Kindly
Inks: Basic Black
CS: Vellum, Very Vanilla, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, So Saffron
