Butterfly Punch - All Occasion Card

I have had this stamp set for quite sometime and I think I might have used it before. I got the matching Stampin Up punch since I had the stamp set but haven't used it...at least I don't think I have.

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up Butterfly Prints stamp set
Stampin Up Butterfly Punch
Stampin Up Mellow Moss Cardstock
Cuttlebug
Cuttlebug Script folder
Cuttlebug Textile folder
K & Co. Life's Journey pattern paper
Liquid Walnut Ink Stain
Spring Moss Grosgrain Ribbon
Copper Wire
Copper Brads







The sentiment for the card came with the butterfly stamp set, don't ya love easy? I think this makes a good all occasion card. On the inside paper I used the liquid walnut stain to go around the edges for an aged look. The stuff is really easy to use. I got it at a LSS a few years back and still have quite a bit left in the bottle.






The copper wire for the butterfly body and antenna is actually from some phone wire that my friend Linda, aka LGuild, gave me. I stripped off the plastic coating so I could just use the copper wire *okie grins at yet another one of her ingenious ideas*. I also used the walnut stain on the butterflies after stamping and punching them so they could have an aged look and the white cardstock wasn't so stark looking on the card.

This is a pretty simple card and I like the over all look of it.

  5. Super cute card ... I especially like the way you have a copper wire wrapped around the body that also makes the antenna. Love that beautiful sentiment too!
