Antique Butterflies

Hello again!

How are you all?

I've got the next card ready for you:

I don't do enough of these distressed, vintage-style cards! It's so 'olde'-looking, I forget how much I like the non-white-space cards, too!

So this one was easy to make, but took a lot of steps. Firstly I stamped a piece of cardstock with the Friend definition stamp, distressed the edges and then added some faux-stitching.
On a separate sheet of cardstock, I stamped and distressed some butterflies, added some highlights and cut them out.
I adhered the butterflies using glue-dots, and then added some vellum which I scored, stamped and shaped beforehand.
Finally, I adhered the piece to a card-blank, and added some stickles for some bling :)

That's it for now - 'see' you again soon!

Tasha :)
