Butterfly Cascade

The Papillon Potpourri has to be one of my all time favorite stamp sets! I love the versatility of it. Use the stamp set itself to make a card or combine it with numerous others to add interest! It works great as an embellishment as well - especially when paired with the coordinating Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.

This card is an A2 card made with a summer starfruit base. I cut a piece of Birthday Basics designer series paper and matted it onto the base. I then took a piece of whisper white cardstock and edged it using the Adorning Accents Edgelits and added a band near the bottom using Raspberry Ripple Satin Ribbon. The butterflies were stamped onto the base using assorted butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri set using Summer Starfruit, Coastal Cabana, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple Ink. I used a very small part of the gorgeous grundge stamp set to add assorted 'spots' to fill in gaps on the card front.

 I then took a scrap of whisper white card stock and stamped a large and small butterfly in each of the colors previously mentioned and punched them out using the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches - I adhered those by folding them and adhering with a glue dot so they looked as though they were flying off the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Express Yourself stamp set of course in coastal cabana and naturally added some Jewel Basic Rhinestones to each of the butterflies "in flight".
