While many of the supplies used in this card are retired, the technique is still a winner, and anyone can have fun with it.
The star of the card is, of course, the decorative butterfly. To achieve this, find a stamp with lots of open line work -- think a coloring book. This butterfly stamp is ideal for the technique. Choose a piece of Designer Series Paper that would work well with what you picture in your mind.
In black ink, stamp your open image onto the DSP. I have bad arthritis in my hands, so I have trouble always getting a good even image. If you experience that also, just take a black marker and carefully go over the areas that need a little help.
Once the image is stamped to your satisfaction, carefully fussy cut it, cutting right up to the black stamped lines.
Happiness is like a butterfly: The more you chase it, the more it will evade you, but if you notice the other things around you, it will gently come and sit on your shoulder.
