A Butterfly Look Back in Time!

by Joanne James29. May 2014 11:57

A really quick post from me today as I am having a busy one! Today's card uses this week's sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and is an example of something that I don't do very often: it uses a long-ago retired vintage stamp set, Flight of the Butterfly. Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I loved the sentiments that come with this stamp set and I needed a card specifically using the sentiment above, so I combined it with some naturals ivory cardstock and some colours that I had out on my desk for another project that I've been working on this week and decided that this set would work perfectly with the above sketch to create a clean and simple butterfly card. I stamped the butterflies in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Baked Brown Sugar and punched the main one of and just shaped with my bone folder before adhering to my card. I added some linen thread to the spine to add to the natural feel of the card, but couldn't resist a sprinkling of gold sequins too. If you don't have this stamp set, you could easily re-create it with a current set, such as Papillion Potpourri and the Elegant Butterfly punch.

I hope you like today's card; don't forget the retiring list is published tomorrow so do pop back to see all of the things that we will be saying goodbye to at the end of June. Until then, happy stampin'!

Thanks Leigh - this was a great sketch! I nearly went with the circles and did have a sample ready to go, but then used butterflies instead. I've also used the sketch layout in my Friday card - I think it's a keeper!
