It's no secret that I've quite the obsession with butterflies. Sadly, I haven't seen many varieties in real life, but more than make up for it in papercraft goodies - stamps, punches, dies - & now my biggest butterfly of all - Swallowtail!
Swallowtail is a background sized stamp, so it needs very little embellishment to look amazing. This was the first card I made, for my dear friend Sam. It's very sparkly IRL, as it's sprayed with champagne mist shimmer spray, but quite hard to see in the pic.
Next up, I made this one for my wonderful Mum & Dad in law.
Swallowtail was stamped in midnight muse & then I added some simple shading with my summer starfruit marker. I really love this quote - from John Lennon I believe - included in our Pursuit of Happiness set.
I sent this card with a package of cards for my MIL, Shirley. She hasn't been hooked on stamping (yet!), but she does love to give handmade cards to her friends.
I was concerned they'd be damaged in the mail, so I made this box with the heavy recycled backing of our DSP pack, using my Simply Scored, scoring tool & a fab tutorial by Tanya Bell - thanks Tanya. Doesn't Swallowtail look amazing? You can see how big the stamp is, as the box holds standard cards & envelopes. It's really strong too, due to the thick cardboard backing. I had to sneak in another butterfly on the box closure - from Papillon Potpourri.
