Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamps:

Wings Set and the word Hopeful from the set Oops A Daisy

For today's post I wanted to share a card using a truly versatile stamp set with you.  I chose to use the Smaller of the Monarch Butterfly Wings for my card today.  I made this card as a future card to send during the month of October which is breast Cancer Awareness month.

Card Recipe:
I stamped the Wings which I placed very closely together on a piece of vellum then used White embossing powder and heat set. Fussy cutting is not my favorite craft task but this was actually super simple and easy to do, so much so that I made a few more for a future project. I had some scraps of the patterned paper and lined them up and glued them to a piece of printer paper and die cut a nice rounded edge rectangle and applied thin strips of silver washi tape to hide the seams. I die cut a butterfly from a dark purple piece of cardstock to adhere the wings to using multi matte medium.  The sentiment was stamped using a pretty purple ink.  

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. I used Tombow Extreme to affix the die cut rectangle to the front of an A2 sized top folding piece of Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock. The butterfly was attached using Tombow glue and some Nuvo Drops in Silver Lining applied to give the body and tips of antennae some detail.  A few more drops of Nuvo were applied to finish off this card.
