Embossed Vellum Butterflies

What happens when you mix embossing powder and vellum paper? You get GORGEOUS embossed butterflies!! Aren't the butterflies from the Papillon stamp set pretty? BTW, Papillon is butterfly in French. Now, back to the card, I am digging the papaya and watermelon paper combo. Cheery, fun and fresh! The watermelon was run through the Grand Caliber with the woodgrain embossing plate and then the spellbinder oval was cut out. The reason for that order was so the watermelon flower could be cut out of the textured oval piece.

I love the look of the butterflies on the vellum. The butterflies are stamped with versamark and then covered with white embossing powder and heated up. I love embossing. I think it's probably one of my favorite things with stamping because it always feels like magic when the powder heats up and changes to the lovely silky lines. Such loveliness! The flowers are die cut from the Flower Die Set 1 and the little teeny tiny daisy was colored papaya with a sponge dauber.
Here's the inside of the card - watermelon and papaya inks. (Another one of the butterflies from Papillon).
And here's a variation with a strip of vellum. The inside was the same as the card above.

What do you think? A couple of steps but still fairly simple cards.
