don't have to be hard to make! I find it funny, lots of layers, easy, single layer-say what! But with a little masking, sponging and layering of stamps, it really can be easy.
See, doesn't really look like a one layer card does it? First I masked the top and bottom of the card and stamped the large butterfly from Papillion Potpourri in Versamark and clear embossed them. Using my sponges, I added some Daffodil Delight ink and stamped on a few more butterflies with the Daffodil Delight ink. Then using En Francais and Pumpkin Pie ink added a bit of words, not really worrying about placement or how much of the stamped image really showed up and then I added some Pumpkin Pie sponging. Now rub the panel with a paper towel to remove any ink off the embossed images and then remove the masking. I then added the sentiment from Happy Day using my Stamp a ma jig to ensure perfect placement. Now I could have just stamped the Pumpkin Pie butterfly on the card, but I wanted it to have a bit of dimension so I stamped it on some scrap Whisper White, punched it out with my Elegant Butterfly punch and attached it with a glue dot. Hmmm, maybe this isn't a one layer card after all!
