Butterfly Wishes

I was looking forward to using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set because I absolutely adore butterflies! Did you know that the Elegant Butterfly punch coordinates with this set? I am a sucker for stamp sets and punches that coordinate with one another... ;)

Stamping with Rach Tips & Tricks
  • On the smaller piece of white card stock, sponge the edges (a little thicker than usual). This gives it the illusion of a layer of Island Indigo beneath it.
  • I used the Rock and Roll technique on the middle butterfly so there was some variation between the butterflies.
  • Place 1" and 1 1/4" punched out circles underneath the butterflies to draw attention to them.
  • Pierce around the edge of the smaller whisper white cardstock.
