Butterfly Flying Away with Clearly for You!

I have been continuing my quest to use some of my retired stamp sets one last time, so today's card features the Clearly for You stamp set. I love this set with its tiny images, especially the swallows on the wire (or are they swifts?)


The background image from the stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card and then punched out using the Butterfly Punch. Sadly this punch is retired and sold out, but do not worry Stampin' Up! have not left us without a butterfly - wait till you see the new punch in the Annual Catalogue 2012/13! This was then popped onto a Scallop Circle which had been punched from Early Espresso Card and run through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder - you can see the detail better in the picture below.


A piece of Rich Razzleberry paper from the Brights Paper Stack was mounted onto a square of Early Espresso card and a bow tied round using the gorgeous Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  This was then all popped onto a Rich Razzleberry card base.  The sentiment is from the Love & Laughter stamp set which we first saw in the Summer Mini Catalogue and you will see it back in the new Annual Catalogue! It was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White card and punched out using the Modern Label Punch and edged with Early Espresso.  The card and butterfly were finished off using Rhinestone Jewels.
