For my card all of the stamps I'm using are from Class Act Inc., Chapel Road Artstamps. My card is a little unconventional in size. It's 6 3/4 by 5 1/4 inches. I chose to leave it larger because I liked the white space around the black images. The base card is white. I used a yellow panel to contrast with the black and white theme. I dry embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder and then distressed the edges with dried mustard distress ink. The butterflies were stamped with Staz-On on glossy paper and then punched using a 1 7/8 inch square punch. Each of the squares was matted with black. The sentiment and poem were also stamped on glossy with Staz-On and matted on black. All of the butterfly squares were adhered to the yellow panel. The poem was adhered using dimensional foam tape.
The butterfly stamps are from the Angle Butterfly and Butterfly Square stamp sheets. The sentiments are from Butterfly Square and Birthday Abermarle.
Lisa and Gerrie, have a wonderful birthday.
