Raspberry Tart Butterflies For You

On Tuesday I had my downline over for a little stamping. One of the projects we did was a matchbox filled with chocolates using the Raspberry Tart papers and the Great Friend stamp set. Today I saw a great sketch challenge on the Stamp Something blog and decided to whip up a quick card to go with the little matchbox using the sketch.
I used the Rock 'n Roll technique on the butterfly. First I inked my stamp with Cameo Coral and then inked the edges by rolling it in the Rose Red ink. A little window was created on the matchbox slider by punching it with the Curly Label punch before assembling. Then a piece of window sheet was adhered into place with some Tombow Multi Adhesive. I even found that this adhesive is strong enough to hold the slider in place for the Matchbox...I love this stuff!

See the layered tag on my card? The largest layer is one of the tags included on the Matchbox Bigz die. The second layer was made using the Lots of Tags Sizzlet and of course the top layer was cut using the Large Oval punch and the Oval All stamp set.
