Butterfly notecards

My oldest daughter loves butterflies, and so I began purchasing butterfly stamps to make cards for her. I was delighted to find this text stamp and the two butterflies that went with it. Originally I was going to emboss with gold and color in, but I realized that would be too much effort for simple notecards! I had some fun foam from a craft project for Children's Church years ago, and a bunch of wood blocks. So, I stamped each butterfly onto the fun foam, intentionally over-cut the image, and used double sided tape to affix them to wooden blocks. Then I used multi-shaded stamp pads for color. I colored in the bodies and antennae with markers.
