My French Butterfly

This card uses the stamp sets French Foliage and Swallowtail.

I am lovin' this giant butterfly stamp!  Here it is embossed in gold and colored with More Mustard and Cajun Craze classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. 
The background is stamped in Crumb Cake ink with some stamps from the French Foliage stamp set.
Note the distressed edges of the card stock.  I almost missed the fact that SU! has a new Stampin' Distress Tool (item #127562) in the Spring Catalog on the bottom of page 14.  Even after I bought one I couldn't find it in the catalog again - took me a few looks - so just thought I would point it out in case you missed it like I did.  Or, maybe I am the only one with that problem.   I have a couple of other distress tools but really lovin' this new one! 

This makes for a quick card with WOW results.
Happy Stampin'-


  1. That is just so lovely. Thank you for sharing. I must try this out as soon as possible :) Have only embossed the giant butterfly in black so far! I think your gold looks even nicer and stamping in Crumb Cake first really does make it pop.

  2. it looks beautiful! Great.
