This is the second make and take card we did at last night's stamper's ten meeting.
We used the fern and branch image from the Touch of Nature set to make the saffron background. The butterflies were stamped using the blue, and then very carefully had the saffron added by dabbing with a marker so as not to make the blue run. After cutting them out, they were glued on just by their bodies.
To keep the wings elevated, half a foam pad was stuck behind each wing as shown. The backing paper was left on the pad so that it doesn't stick to the card, but just acts to keep the wings raised.
The little yellow corner decorations on the front of the card were made by punching 1/4" circles and shaping them with an embossing tool.
