Happy Birthday Butterfly

Coloring and fussy cutting... not my favorite of the stamp techniques that are available for card-making. However, with the Beautiful Day stamp set and the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, coloring on vellum is so easy!! Also, since this stamp outline is so thick, it's made perfect for fussy-cutting.
What is fussy-cutting you ask? It's when you cut out an image the old-fashioned way... with a pair of scissors.

I first stamped the image with Versamark and then heat embossed it using copper embossing powder. I then turned it over and colored in the image on the back side using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I did this first, and then put it aside to allow for drying.

I then assembled the rest of the card before fussy-cutting out the butterfly. Doesn't it look like stained glass?

I hope you like this card. Please leave a comment below to let me know, or just to say "hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin!
