I am going to miss this large blossom flower from the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set that is retiring. It makes such a statement on cards whether it's the focal point or a background like on this card. I made smaller 3" x 3" thank you notes using this card concept and thought to myself, "Wonder what it would like as a full size card?" And the rest is history! I love how it turned out, simple but eye catching. I really like the look of the blossom inked with Whisper White ink and stamped on the darker Night of Navy card stock. And I love the idea of punching the large butterfly out of the Crumb Cake card stock and then adding a punched small butterfly out of vellum to the inside of it to create the appearance of a 3D butterfly. Simple idea, but big impact! Happy Stamping!
