Beautiful Butterflies

Isn't this gorgeous? OK....I know I'm bragging! But, when I was finished making this card, I was just amazed at how simple, but elegant it was when completed.

The background of this card is simply a base of folded Crumb Cake embossing, it's just plain and simple! The scallop square was created with the larger of the 2 scallop squares in the Scallop Square Duo Die (still available!) and then a stamped layer of Very Vanilla is over top. The stamp used is Fine Flourishes.....a lovely smaller, background stamp. The double winged butterfly was made using both the Beautiful Butterflies Die (Crumb Cake layer) and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (Baja Breeze layer). Before mounting the smaller butterfly layer, I gently folded in half, so that it would have more dimension....and the raised portion was also gently sponged with Very Vanilla Craft Ink, which makes those little raised curly Qs POP! After mounting, some Basic Pearls (LOVE those!!) were added in, and the butterfly really came together.

I'm also in love with all the new seam binding that SU is carrying....on this card, I wrapped the front of the card in Crumb Cake Seam Binding. The bow has one of the cute little buttons from the Neutrals Designer Pack, a smaller bow created with Linen Thread and topped with a small Basic Pearl. I guess this card is a perfect example of "less is more!"
