The first card I made was black and white. I love the contrast. It's so striking. I even added a little butterfly to the inside of the card to finish it off.
After making the black one I wanted to try another color. I used Brilliant Blue from Stampin' Up for the cardstock and the ink.
The sentiment on the right lower side of the butterfly was stamped first and then covered up with a post it note so that the butterfly didn't stamp on that area. I then pulled off the post it note and voila! You could use any sentiment you want or no sentiment at all.
The way I created the layers was to cut the white cardstock at 5 1/4"x4", 4 1/4"x3" and 3 1/4"x2". The blue or black cardstock should be cut at 8 1/2"x5 1/2" (this piece will be folded in half to create the card base), 4 1/2"x3 1/4" and 3 1/2"x2 1/4".
Stack the white pieces on top of each other with a temporary adhesive.
After stacking the white pieces you will stamp your image.
After stamping you will then take the pieces apart and layer them on top of the colored cardstock.
I also used pop dots in between the layers to give them a little more dimension. That's it.
