With winter approaching I am trying to hold on to the warmer weather for just a little longer, so decided to try to incorporate butterflies into my latest card creation.

I think of butterflies very much as a summer visiter, flitting around the garden and stopping to rest in the sunshine, so I wanted to add them to a card.

I put Crumb Cake cardstock on to a card blank (I have some I am trying to use up), then matted with Very Vanilla, onto which I stamped the En Francaise background stamp in Crumb Cake. I stamped two small and one of the larger butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri set on to card scraps and then cut out a garden jar shape and stamped a sentiment.

For a little bling, I have decorated the body of the largest butterfly with small rhinestone, and put a couple more on the sentiment. Et voila!

Supplies used:

Crumb Cake cardstock.

Very Vanilla cardstock.

Crumb Cake ink.

Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set.

En Francais Background Stamp.

Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set.

Basic rhinestones.
