Butterflies are a great image to include on a card. They're so colorful and seem so carefree. Butterflies make me think of happy days. They make a really cheery "hello there".
The sentiment and the lacy doily used as background stamping were both stamped in Versamark. This ink leaves a subtle watermark image on colored paper.
Both the doily and sentiment images are from a stamp set called Happy Day.
The butterflies are from a set called Papillon Potpourri. I stamped them in black ink on colored paper and then punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly punch.
This is one of the things I really like about Stampin'UP! I love the fact that there are so many matching stamp sets and punches.
Scissors v. Punch: I know some people are great with a pair of scissors but not me. I really appreciate the more professional look of the punched image.
What about you? Leave a comment below. Do you enjoy cutting out images? Do you own tons of punches? If I know your preferences then I can post more of what you like.
