The beautiful Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set from Mama Elephant is wonderful for creating many kinds of greeting cards. Today I'm sharing a sympathy/thinking of you card showcasing the Butterfly Kisses Stamps and coordinating dies colored with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
I stamped the flowers and butterfly from the Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Butterfly Kisses Dies and set them aside to work on the background of the card.
I die cut the Madison Avenue Frame from smooth white cardstock, reserving the frame for the card and die cut it again from watercolor cardstock, reserving the inside rectangle and saving the frame for another project. On the inside rectangle, I applied Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar Distress Inks using an Ink Blending Tool. I spritzed the piece with water from a Distress Sprayer, let the water sit for about 30 seconds and then blotted the panel dry with a paper towel.
Once the background was dry, I stamped greetings from the Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set on the background as shown using the Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. I adhered the background to the center of a side fold card base and then trimmed the floral die cuts and placed them along the bottom edge. I adhered the frame in place, placing some of the leaves from the florals on top of the frame instead of "behind" the frame. I secured the frame to the card base and then adhered the butterfly with foam adhesive.
