This card was inspired by Patty Bennett. She made that used two stamp pads and one stamp set, and thought that was a great idea for a “beginner” card. And when you use a set like Butterfly Basics, it’s hard to mess up!
To help the butterfly out of the
cocoon, er, die, I use waxed paper between the die and the cardstock. And then, what do you do with the waxed paper butterfly? Well – if you have glossy cardstock, you can iron it to the cardstock. When you pick the waxed paper back up, there will be enough wax ironed into the cardstock to resist ink – so you can spritz, bray or sponge color to the glossy cardstock without covering the butterfly.
I decided to layer my waxy butterfly to the Pistachio Pudding one.
It gives it a little fluttery movement, I think.
I actually used three stamp pads (I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake) and two stamp sets. The sentiment is from And Many More.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a day full of love and wonder!
