Swallowtail: A little embellishment goes a long way

Swallowtail stamp - Clean & Simple note card ideas, simple to embellish

I think in all my years of stamping, I’ve only seen 1-2 stamps EVER that come close to meeting the beauty of the Swallowtail stamp (see it online – 129216).

These easy note cards are created using the Note Cards & Envelopes (see them online).  I absolutely adore using the Note Cards for elegant yet simple projects.

I know the Swallowtail image is huge — nearly bigger than a standard card front (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). Don’t let it intimidate you!

 Here are a few of my suggestions for using it:

  • Use only a portion of the butterfly (like in the samples here)
  • Go monochromatic – a single color shows off the beauty in the stamp perfectly
  • Heat emboss the butterfly – be sure to use high end embossing powder (like from Stampin’ Up!) to capture all the detail

Happy Stamping!
