Butterfly Basics... Best Mother Ever

I am in total love with this stamp set!!

I have to admit...  it didn't catch my eye when I first saw it in the catalog.

But now that I've had a chance to play with it, I absolutely love it!!

I think one of my favorite parts is the honeycomb - it's so delicate - and such a cool background.  I can see that stamp being used a lot in the future!!

We start our card with a Blackberry Bliss card base, then added a layer of Very Vanilla card stock.

Then, we stamped.....

-the honeycomb and largest butterfly in Baked Brown Sugar ink
-the ferns and postmark stamp in Mossy Meadow ink
-the smaller butterflies and strip across the bottom in Blackberry Bliss ink

All of the wonderful images on this card are courtesy of the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  Well, all except the one blackberry bliss larger butterfly, which is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.

We also added a strip of the very feminine Venetian Crochet Trim to the bottom of the card.

Next, we stamped "best mother ever" in Blackberry Bliss ink (from the And Many More Stamp Set) and punched it out with the Word Window Punch.  Then, we layered this piece on top of a Blackberry Bliss piece punched with our Modern Label Punch.  This is a standard layering option that has been around for a while, but I still love it - especially with the small sentiments found in stamp sets like And Many More and Teeny Tiny Wishes.
