Wow, October already? How did that happen? I had hoped to have a summer of cardmaking, but life is just too busy! However,I did manage a few; this one was made early August for my oldest daughter's birthday.
I love the butterfly stamp used in this card! Actually, it's three stamps, two for the wings, one for the body, making for a lovely 3D effect, which is lacking a bit in this picture. After I photographed it, I found a pencil-width metal mystery tool, and I laid it across the body, then put dimensional dots beneath the winges to raise them. With the metal rod holding down the body, the wings could curve up without weakening the bond holding the body to the card. It worked perfectly!
