Connie-Butterfly Birthday!

Here is one view of this gorgeous 
from plate #2.
I think this plate has absolutely 
THE most classically beautiful 

I chose to stamp on cocoa cardstock with versamark
ink and emboss with color added!
I cut some lovely papers to match from
Colorbok's "English Meadow" set and added
a few diecuts by 
"Catalina Border"

The end result (in my opinion) is
a lovely piece with little time!

I made a second card using the same image below:

For this one I embossed in gold and colored
with Copics.  I tucked the main image under
a cut of the pretty background paper
(from DCWV "Mariposa") in order
to make it useful for more than
a birthday.
Added a flower from my stash and 
a pretty tiny diecut butterfly by
Cheery Lynn
"Exotic Butterfly Small"
popped up a bit.

Please check out the pretty stamps
from the earlier offerings over at


  1. Oh wow, two such different - yet beautiful - cards using the same image. It looks so striking embossed in white on dark card and that paper and those die-cuts are perfect! I love this card!

    And then the second one... wow! I *love* the Mariposa papers (I have this pad and struggle to bring myself to use it cos it's just sooo pretty that I want to keep it! :lol:) and the stamp looks incredible embossed in gold and then coloured in - I totally want to try this idea on one of my cards now too! :)


  2. Wow, Connie, these both came out stunning, but I really love the first one, how you embossed that image and then used a die cut over and under it. Just perfect. It has a real wow effect on it. Awesome card. Cheers, Holley

  3. Cool to see two so different cards, with same motive. I like white on brown, Thats beautiful! I also like the colorful butterflies, they are lovely!

  4. Gorgeous Connie, I love the embossing one, so beautiful.
