SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #33

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #33 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is so pretty. 
Here's my inspiration for you using the following stamp set:
Wings Set 

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 at the same time I made my earlier Butterfly card except this one is just an all occasion card and could be used for male or female.

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.  I repeated this 2 more times. Fussy cutting is not my favorite craft task but this was actually super simple and easy to do. I die cut the floral patterned paper and then die cut the word HI from the lower corner.  I die cut 3 butterflies from a different shades of blue cardstock to adhere the wings on using multi matte medium.

With all the stamping and layers ready to go next up was assembly of the card. In order to make the word HI really stand out but not detract from the butterfly layers I used Versamark on the card base and applied some lovely dark blue metallic embossing powder and heat set it.  I used Tombow Extreme to affix the die cut floral layer to the front of an A2 sized side folding piece of Neenah Solar Crest 110lb cardstock. The butterflies were attached using Tombow glue and some Nuvo Drops in Midnight Blue applied to give the body and tips of antennae some detail.
