Butterfly on Vellum

  I am using a new technique for this butterfly.  I was inspired by a post by Darlene D. on her blog about coloring on Vellum. I just loved the card that she made using heat embossing on Vellum paper and coloring with Copics on the back. Check out her tutorial video. I hope she does not mind my referring to her post. I stamped with versamark ink and heat embossed with black EP on Yellow Vellum paper and then colored with Copics on the back. I could have used plain vellum too but thought the color might be richer on a color.  I fussy cut the butterfly and attached with foam tape to the inside of the card. On my card base of white cardstock, I cut a window with Spellbinder dies and made a frame for the opening with the dies and black textured cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment and cut with a Spellbinders Tag die and attached to the card with ribbon. Before attaching the butterfly to the inside, I embossed the interior with an embossing folder.

This card is for  SplitcoastStampers 4th annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive  - their fourth annual month long card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer. They are partnered with UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in this drive.  The first challenge from Lydia is to make a card with inner strength - meaning that a dimensional image on the inside of your card can be seen through an opening in the front of your card.
