Butterfly Notes

Hi there! I am so thrilled to have been asked to Guest Design for Tombow today. The project I am sharing with you is a set of simple, easy to mail notecards that I have made for my Mom. Mom loves butterflies, so I picked several butterfly images from my stamp stash to work with.


Each of the cards started with a standard A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") white card and stamped the top half with the butterfly images. For the purple "thinking of you" and the Aqua "happy birthday" cards I colored the Penny Black butterfly stamp directly with my Tombow Dual Brush markers and then spritzed the stamp with water before stamping the image. I love the soft watercolor effect this creates. I added a 3" x 4 1/4" piece of print cardstock and a piece of ribbon to each one using Tombow Mono Tape Runner. To finish off each card, I added a piece of knotted ribbon that I attached with Mono Aqua Adhesive.





I can't thank Sharron and the Crew at Tombow enough for inviting me to share my love of stamping (and Tombow) with you.  Keep your fingers crossed that they will let me do it again!  :)

see you soon,

Stunning cards, Melissa, I had trouble picking one to feature on papermood.com but the purple butterfly with green paper won me over. Thanks for sharing your creative enthusiasm and your beautiful creations. X Fab
