Here's a project that I made especially for my crafting bestie's wedding Anniversary.  It was a big shindig, celebrating 25 blissful years.  Well, we all know.... not every year is blissful!  She finally got her card, so now, I can share it with you all.  I'm so in love with this butterfly from So Suzy Stamps.  It's been awhile since I last broke it out.  I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pair it with a newer sentiment that I've also had in my supply; a fabulous quote from the famous actress, Audrey Hepburn which aptly, is the name of the sentiment stamp.


For the butterflies, I stamped with my Hero Arts ombre green ink, then sprinkled clear embossing powder and heated with my heat embossing tool.  Both were stamped onto Kaisercraft Heirloom patterned paper and I fussy cut one of the butterflies for dimension.   This butterfly stamp is the most intricate that I've ever seen and is simply stunning.   Click on any of the highlighted affiliate links, if you'd like to purchase one for yourself.  Or, two or three!  They make lovely gifts for your crafty friends.

Doesn't it look like it will simply fly off the page?  To be able to slide this into an envelope, I simply scored both sides where the wings connect and simply folded one wing.   It's adhered with a thin strip of Thermoweb glue lines.   My friend will be able to unfold and open both wings for display.  Magic!
