Layered Swallowtail

Today I am sharing with you a card that I made a while ago now, which I have updated a little to make a little more interesting.
Originally this card was a single layer card which we made in a technique class.  I wanted to dress it up a bit though…….

I have added two layers to the butterfly, which was originally just stamped onto the card in Elegant Eggplant ink.  So I have stamped the Swallowtail in Wisteria Wonder, and another in Pink Pirouette, and have then cut out the two butterflies and layered them over the original one.  Here is a better photo of the layers.

The “Hello” greeting comes from the Four You stamp set.

This fellow was sent off as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) recently, so I hope the recipient liked it.
Happy stamping!

August Stamps in Your Letterbox

The feature stamp set for the month of August and for Stamps in Your Letterbox is Kinda Eclectic (Page 164 of the Catalogue). This is a really versatile stamp set and heaps of fun to use, so for those of you who are signed up for Stamps in Your Letterbox, you are in for a treat this month!

Today I am sharing a pouch card which I have made using not only Kinda Eclectic, but also the Envelope Punch Board.  The card fits into one of our standard size envelopes so that you can send it in the mail.

 

The card itself is a flat card, like a post card, but there is plenty of room for writing on it, and it slides into a decorated pouch made using the Envelope Punch Board.

 

I have used some of the bright and cheery papers from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Papers (Page 186), and the “Birthday Greetings” comes from the Four You Stamp Set.  They are a little hard to see in the photo, but I have added a little bling with some Sequins (Page 208) on the butterflies, along with some Thick Baker’s Twine (Page 207) around the top of the card to make it easier to pull the card out of the pouch.

It’s not too late to take part in Stamps in Your Letterbox for August, just contact me to sign up, and you can find out more information here.

Happy Stamping!
