Today's card is for Less is More Challenge: Punches and Die Cuts. I suspect there will be bunches of fantastic cards entered in this one!
My card is super simply with a little technique . . . just the way I like it :)
I started by die cutting a circle (Spellbinders, Standard circles small) out of a 4 x 5 1/4 white layer.
Next I stamped the flourish background (Hero Arts, Artistic Windows) on glossy paper (Ranger). Once dry I rubbed on Broken China distress ink ink pad to paper. I buffed off the extra ink with a dry cloth. I stamped over the background with the large butterfly (Hero Arts, Butterflies) using jet black archival ink (Ranger) I was so nervous I was going to smudge it lol I stamped another butterfly on regular white card stock and colored it with broken china to use as a second set of wings. After I fussy cut them out I adhered the two together with a little foam tape. I know you can't see the second butterfly in the photo but you can when you look in the window from the side.
I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, You & Me) then added some bakers twine and two gems. I had no intention of this turning into a monochromatic card when I started but that's how it ended up :)
Thanks for visiting!
