BONJOUR, BUTTERFLY!


If you look closely, you'll see yet another card with Scor-Bug accents.

First, I stamped the butterfly in black India Ink, painted it with Twinkling H2O's, cut it out and set it aside.

Next, I inked up the SU French Script background stamp with 2 shades of Colorbox yellow inks, leaving some spots untouched for a mottled look. After stamping the plain white cs, I then used the Scor-Bug partway along the top, bottom and sides of the card.

Once the card was ready, I used dimensionals to attach the butterfly so that the left wing would extend out past the opening in the Scor-Bug dots. Then I used my SU coordinating oval punches for the greeting, which also extends beyond the lower dot border.

For bling, I added some tiny black gems to the butterfly body, his "trail" and the dot over the j in Bonjour.



Tip: As you can see, I use the dots in letter sets I can get at craft stores. They come in lots of different colors (black, red, pearl, rhinestone...) and are ideal for small touches on a card!
