So yesterday's card was all about my crafting with acetate.  Well attempting too anyway.  Did I mention yesterday that heat embossing causes acetate to warp?  You can trust me on that one!  So I ended up with scraps of warped overlay.  Hmmm what to do..

So I had already made my card with the new Swallowtail butterfly stamp.  It's big, it's gorgeous!

It's so big, you can't even fit it entirely on a standard card front.  I've stamped with Whisper White craft ink and then embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  Lovely, especially in real life.

I've then used scraps of Sycamore Street DSP on the bottom of the card and stamped my old-time favourite Vintage Vogue flowers.  I've used a rhinestone gem for one of the flowers too.

Just above the flowers on the left, you can see a little clear butterfly.  Yep, I used my scrap pieces of warped acetate which had been heat embossed with the French script stamp.  I punched them out with the new butterfly punch and tied some bakers twine around for little antennae!

Scraps obviously are not meant to be thrown away, the moral of this story!!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Swallowtail & Vintage Vogue
Papers: Pool Party & Whisper White CS, Sycamore St DSP
Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Island Indigo, Pool Party,Tangerine Tango & Gumball Green classic ink
Other: Bakers Twine, acetate, gem, Iridescent Ice embossing powder
