Wordy Butterfly

I have been wanting to try the stamped die cuts look since I saw this on my friend Angies post.  This is quite a simple card and has a lot of wow impact to it along the white on white lines.  I wanted to make this just a bit softer for a young friends graduation this spring.  (I think they will still graduate even if spring never appears, as it seems prone to do, or not do)  Pretty self explanatory so I shall spare you all the wordy words this a. m.   Inside I stamped the same sentiment and did a pink shadow stamp of a butterfly over the words.

TIP:  I outlined the die cuts with a dark burgundy marker to set them off a bit.  Just hold the marker straight up and run it aroundthe edges of the die cuts.

  1. Very pretty combination of die cutting and embossing!

  2. I like words on things you don't expect to see words on.. like butterflies and Angie's flowers. This is a nicely elegant card. Well done!

    I noticed we didn't have a numbered stamp this time, did you forget or are these ones just for fun and off that schedule?
