What goes around comes around...

Vellum and sequins are most definitely 'on trend' at the moment and I'm loving their revival. So much so that I couldn't help myself and created a sequin background for this triple layer of vellum butterflies.

DESIGNED FOR | Hampton Art
PROJECT | Thanks card


I stamped three images of different size butterflies from the Jillibean Soup - Chilled Cucumber Soup Stamp Set in opaque white and heat embossed using a frosted powder.


I would have stitched the layers together however I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine so I used glue instead before folding the wings up to give more dimension to the card.
