No Greater Love

Hello friends - today I am sharing a card with you that has been created using a beautiful stamp created by the lovely Nina Brackett - this stamp has now been retired but that doesn't have to stop us using it - we all get our favourites don't want to part with them.

I have coloured the image using using Chameleon Pens and cut it out using the oval from the Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace A2 Filigree Delight Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine. It has been popped it up onto the Spellbinders Nestabilities Elegant Ovals Etched Dies #4 using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The butterfly from Indigo Blue has been stamped using Imagine ink in Tuxedo Black and also coloured using Chameleon PensIt has been cut out by hand, using scissors and popped up onto the lower portion of the layered image also using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Next the layered image has been layered onto a pre-cut card base and card front.  A flower and bling added to the butterfly.
