Butterfly Border - Pinterest Inspired

I saw a beautiful card on Pinterest using the A Muse Studio papillon stamp set for a border. I knew that I had to CASE that design because it just has so many possibilities with so many different stamp sets.

I started with a blush card base and used ocean, lime and grape ink to stamp the papillon (papillon is butterfly in French). A little sky ribbon and some sky pearl stickers finished off the front as well as the sentiment from Graceful Greetings.

The trick is to stamp your butterflies close to the edge without going over and then just cut around their wings to make your own border design. No punch needed for this one. :) Here's a close-up of the design.

I put a strip of grape along the edge of the inside of the card to help make the border pop. A couple of lime butterflies flew inside too. :)

The new catalog is coming in just a few days so stay tuned for more inspiration and some sneak peeks! all supplies are available on my webstore:

Have a most wonderful day!
