Heat Embossed Butterfly Card

Continuing with a butterfly theme this heat embossed butterfly card is perfect for many occasions.  I love the butterfly stamp by Inkadinkado.  The monochromatic color scheme creates a soothing look for this card design.

Supplies used: White cardstock, blue cardstock, Bazzill Basics dotted swiss cardstock in Nightwater, patterned paper by K & Company (Julianne designer mat pad, 30-657113), Fiskars edge punch,   Inkadinkado butterfly trail stamp (99257), ColorBox pigment stamp pad in Cape Cod, Stampendous Pearlustre embossing powder in Lapis and Translucent Pearl, Zing! embossing powder in Blue metallic finish, heat tool by The Paper Studio, Hero Arts clear sentiment stamp (classic messages, CL414), ColorBox Cat's Eye archival dye ink in Atlantic Blue, Stampin' Up! dimensionals, and Recollections rhinestones.
