It is time to share another set of cards I created for the May '09 issue of SheetLoad of Cards!
For this set I created 3-D butterflies to add some dimension to the fronts of the cards.
To create the 3-D effect... First I stamped the butterflies in black, on the green paper strip, and then again on a patterned paper. I trimmed the butterflies out of the patterned paper, used a glue-line on the center of each butterfly, adhered the cut-out butterflies on top of the stamped ones, and folded the wings up. Ta-da!
Stamps: There She Goes (Butterfly Happiness); Patterned Paper: Target; Die Cut: Spellbinders (Nestabilities - Labels Three); Ink: StazOn (Black)
