The large images in the Beautiful Day stamp set create the most stunning cards. This butterfly is colored with alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends and has a beautiful stained glass look. The vellum overlay greeting adds elegance without taking away from the image.

I’ve included written instructions for today’s project below. I also have a free PDF tutorial available for those that would like to download and save this project for a later day.
