The card is 10cm square but has had a centimetre removed from the bottom of the front flap. I marked the centre of the card and, pushing the punch as high as it would go, punched a butterfly out of the card front. It's easy to use that one as a guide when punching the other butterflies either side. I pasted a square of Crisp Cantaloupe core'dinations card stock underneath so that it makes a lovely textured border...
... and when you open the card, the inside flap is an expanse of delicious colour. But that's not all!
I stamped some solid butterflies on some scrap card stock, added the detail image over the top in a darker ink and punched them out with the same Bitty Butterfly punch. When they were attached over the punched areas on the card front, you just get a glimpse of the textured cardstock below.
I love a stamp set that coordinates with a punch and it's even better when a stamp set has more than one matching punch - like Papillon Potpourri, the set I'm using today. And even better than that when the stamp set and one of its coordinating punches has 15% discount until the end of the month! Click here for more information.

It looks as if I might need another get well card as my poor daughter sounds as if she's coming down with something. She's still quite chirpy though, despite a very sore throat, and made me laugh by describing her voice as 'so husky it could pull a dog sled'!
See you tomorrow,
