Papillon Potpourri and Vellum

I wanted to try to stamp the beautiful butterflies from the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set on Vellum to see if it would look nice.  I think it does!!! The picture is probably not giving justice to the real one but at least gives an idea!  I wanted to give the illusion that the butterflies were escaping from the frame.  What do you think? The greeting from “Word Play” stamp set seamed totally appropriate!

To make this card, I first stamped the butterfly with White Craft ink on Vellum card stock.  I let it dry a little and turned it over. Then with the stylus, I outlined all the little flowers.  I used the Elegant butterfly punch and cut one in Midnight Muse card stock.  I put it under the vellum to make the “white” stand out more.  Then I used the Designer Frame embossing folder to do the frame. I cut the inside of the frame with an X-acto knife and put the Vellum and the Midnight Muse butterfly underneath.  I stamped 2 more butterflies on vellum with Midnight Muse and the same on White card stock. I superimposed both and fold the vellum wings a little bit to add dimension.
