You give me butterflies

Here’s a gorgeous image from Make it Crafty combined with some lovely papers from Paper Temptress to create today’s card.  This digi-stamp is named Elisabeth.  I am also using a butterfly and a you give me Butterflies sentiment from Unity Stamps.  All the specialty papers today are Paper Temptress.

The featured stamp is a digi-stamp, so it was printed out on my computer.  For digi-stamps, I like to use 80lb paper, as it runs through my printer my easier. I color with Copic markers, so I find that Neenah Solar White is a good paper which both runs through my printer and colors well.  The base of this cards is a gorgeous mica cardstock that shimmers.  It’s called Flame, I stamped right on it in chalk ink.  The red cardstock also has flecks of mica in it, it’s Vermillion Sparkle.  The black cardstock has a very heavy texture to it, which I showed by adding some white ink to the edges, it’s called Black Felt Grandee.    You can’t tell from the image, but the reason that the “You give me Butterflies” quote lies on top of the cardstocks and the butterfly stamp is because it was placed there by stamping it onto a clear transparency!! Doesn’t it look like the image is just floating there?

Have a great crafty day everyone.
Cheers, Holley
