Vogue Butterflies

When I first looked through the Occasions Mini Catalog, the stamp set Vintage Vogue didn't immediately catch my eye. But, I received the set for free when I attended the Phoenix Regional in January, so I've had the opportunity to use it. Now I think it is one of my favorite sets from the Mini Catalog!

For this card I started by using the single stamp Butterfly Accent. I stamped with Pretty in Pink on Whisper White and then cut out the butterfly. After I had finished cutting, I had the thought that perhaps the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die (Big Shot) may have a coordinating butterfly. I checked and sure enough--almost an exact match. So, for the vellum layer I went the easy route and used my Big Shot to do all the cutting work. :-)

To dress up the vellum butterflies, I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin' Emboss Powder. I layered the two butterflies together and then wrapped the Linen Thread around. I also used Iridescent Ice around the edge of the card--I just used my Versamark pad to dab around the edges and then embossed. So lots of sparkle going on in this card! :-) The friend sentiment (also embossed with the Iridescent Ice) is also from the Vintage Vogue set--I just omitted the 's' from the friends stamp.
