Simple Notecard

Welcome to my last GDT posting for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps. Thank you so much for having me and it was a pleasure guest designing with these adorable stamps!

For my last card today I used the second butterfly available on the Dragonflies 2 clear stamp set. My project with the other butterfly from this set can be seen HERE.

Quick 'How To' : Card measures 4.5" x 5.5", cut from plain white 110lbs cardstock. I then cut another plain white layer 4.25" x 5.25". Adhere washi tape. Add flower and secure with pearl brad. Adhere layer with foam tape to card. Stamp butterfly with black ink onto white cardstock. Now stamp the butterfly again right on top of the just stamped balck image using embossing ink. This is easy as it is a clear stamp! Heat emboss with clear fine detail embossing powder. Cut out butterfly. Adhere to card using  foam tape. Stamp the little antennas right onto the card and embellish with 2 small pearls. Stamp sentiment (also from the Dragonflies 2 clear stamp set) onto white cardstock and cut it out; adhere to card with foam tape.

The following two photos show the embossed effect. It adds nice textures and shine to the butterfly and make it pop:
