Legend of The Butterfly

 It is time for me to share another great design using Eureka Stamps- this is probably one of the quickest and easiest cards I have made.
Decided to share a couple versions of the same design.This background stamp is Legend of the Butterfly, so perfect for a Christmas card, but I chose to group it with Large Lacey Butterfly and use it as a Thinking of you type card.
The designer paper and card stock are from CTMH . The butterfly was stamped on plastic shrinky type material- I believe this is one from Wendy Vecchi. I used Stazon so it would be permanent. I ended up just coloring on the backside of the butterfly with my Copics. After cutting out the butterflies I warmed them with my embossing gun to shape the wings. Once they cooled they were permanent.
I also used Viva Pearls in Gold to accent the wings and the background of the card.

So have you started your Christmas cards yet? Pop over and check out some great Background stamps to copy this design. Maybe you are looking for a more traditional type Christmas stamp for your cards, check out this link at Eureka Stamps.
