Create a pretty handmade card featuring a simple two-step stamping technique.
A delicate stamped butterfly is the focal piece of this elegant card design. Note the two colors on the butterfly? It's made with a simple two-step stamping process. You'll stamp the pink silhouette of the butterfly, then stamp an outline of the image in brown right on top. The technique is easy! Best of all, the outline doesn't have to fit perfectly on top of the silhouette...in fact, it often looks better when the two are slightly offset.

    Form a white card blank (or purchase pre-scored white cards). Cut a piece of brown cardstock slightly smaller than the front of the card and glue it in the center. Glue the matted butterfly to the card front. Tie a bow in the brown ribbon and use craft glue to adhere it underneath the butterfly.
