I have shared the beautiful Serendipity Stamps die and stamp with you. I thought I would use them on a design copying a card my friend Laura Lipe sent me a while back. She called it a butterfly easel card. Above, you can see the different layers of butterfly die cuts used. The base butterfly is cut with the card stock being folded and the area at the top of the wings not being cut. Also, a score line is placed along the middle of the top portion of the butterfly base.
A second butterfly was cut from the same color paper and the top two butterflies were cut out of a neutral color, embossed and then ink applied direct to paper.
Below is the lovely card Laura sent me:
Another idea to tie the papers all together is to give a spritz of shimmer over all the card. Tie the envelope in with the card by stamping the butterfly on the envie.
I love mailable dimension on a card, and this really gives a lot of POP!
