butterfly thanks....

November is a time for gratitude... 

 I made a set of 12 (3 of each color) for the card collection I'm giving my sister for Christmas. Again, they are simple, but that is the way she likes them, and it does make it a lot faster to make a lot of cards!

This butterfly is actually 2 stamps from the Inspired by Stamping "Butterfly Wing" set. The first layer I stamped with Distress ink, then I heat embossed the second image over top.  The combo of these two stamps is becoming one of my favorite butterfly images!   

I fussy cut the butterfly out so I could make the wings pop.  I didn't even try to cut out the antennas, instead I added a couple strands of metallic embroidery floss under the body when gluing it to the card. it gives them movement and texture, and is super easy!

enjoy!
