Butterfly Friend - Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings

 It seems that I am forever behind in sharing cards.  I just wrapped up my March stamp club last Tuesday but I haven't even shared the projects from February!  I clearly need to get more organized.

  Today's card is a fun spring card and with just a change of sentiment can be used for a lot of different occasions..spring birthday, sympathy, hello, thinking of you, get well....

   The card base is Whisper White thick, then a smaller layer of Whisper White with the butterfly stamped on it.  The butterfly is a 3 step layered image from Watercolor Wings stamp set.  We started with the So Saffron, then the lighter layer of Peekaboo Peach stamped off once, then the outer edge with Peekaboo Peach in full strength.  The body and antennae are embossed with copper embossing powder.

  To do the sentiment layer we used a long strip of vellum and embossed the sentiment from Suite Sentiments.  Make sure to use the embossing buddy for all your embossing...the specks of copper really show up on the vellum and Whisper White cardstock.  Since you can see adhesive through vellum we wrapped the ends of the vellum strip behind the Whisper White panel and adhered in the back so we didn't need any adhesive on the front.

  There isn't any other embellishment on this card but I think the simple look works really well with the vibrant butterfly and little pop of shine with the embossing.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
