Butterfly Brilliance in Black and White
There is something to be said for the simplicity of creating in black and white. Although I love colourful cards, I think I am equally fond of the monochromatic card. In keeping it simple, the intricate details in the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and Brilliant Wings dies really have a chance to show off. And you can purchase both products together in the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.
When using this set of dies, I tend to cut a couple of extra butterflies if I have time. Then when I need a last minute card, it’s just a card base, some designer series paper plus the circle, butterfly and a greeting. That’s a quick card ready to go. And butterflies work for any occasion – birthday, sympathy, thanks and so many more.
When making butterflies using the dies, I do recommend the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip. It makes getting those little pieces out so much easier. And if you don’t have the original Take Your Pick, it is the handiest little tool for stampers.

To make this card, I adhered the butterflies to a piece of white cardstock that was the same size as the Stitched Rectangle die cut frame that I had made. Then I trimmed off any pieces that exceeded the edge of the cardstock before assembling the card. The card actually had a bit too much open space so it was the Matte Black Dots to the rescue. Just a few dots filled in the whiteness and finished the card.
This card is really similar to the one above except I stamped the butterflies to create the background. The butterfly was highlighted by adding it onto a layering circles die cut. Both greetings are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.
