Stitched Mats. Some of the flourishes from the Paper Smooches stamp set "Flap Happy" were used to guide the stitched flight path of the butterfly. The solid back-side of the butterfly stamp was used to colour in the die-cut butterfly, then I turned the stamp right-side up to stamp the outline. The butterfly is attached to the card only along its spine.
This was a super-quick card to make--even the stitching was easy with the holes pre-punched.
