French Foliage & Butterflies

French Foliage (W123557 / C121166) is a very versatile stamp and one of those, essentials for both scrapbooking and card making as it softens and adds texture to your backgrounds.  Coupled with Stampin' Up!'s new butterfly punches (Elegant Butterfly 127526 & Bitty Butterfly 129406) a simple yet stunning card can be created.

On a Crumb Cake base card I've matted the Whisper White on Perfect Plum. 
I've sponged the edge of the Whisper White card very lightly with Perfect Plum and then added the French Foliage splatters in Perfect Plum over the card with a highlight of crumb cake on the Left to Right diagonal.  The Butterflies were punched out of Vellum and Perfect Plum and lightly sponged in Perfect Plum and Crumb Cake respectively.

The sponging a little closer...
The Butterflies are adhered to the card with glue dots as they lift the butterflies slightly off the card.
Vellum is a great material to use on both your cards and scrapbooking pages.   I hope this card inspires you to not only use your butterfly punches that nestle so well onto each other, but to incorporate vellum into your projects.

The next card is one I've already posted but it shows you the same layout but with Butterflies from the Embosslit Beautiful Wings. Details for this card can be viewed HERE.

This time the butterflies from Beautiful Wings trail down the centre of the card.

This is a very simple layout and has different looks with different highlights - this card employs the Beautiful Wings Embosslits 118138 in Pink Pirouette with a Doily Background and the use of the script stamp from the French Foliage set.
The new in-colour Primrose Petals is just gorgeous, and works so well with pink pirouette, soft suede and the beautiful vintage lace from Stampin' Up!
Enjoy your butterflies and happy crafting on these wonderful sunny days and warm nights.
Happy crafting, Love
