Moroccan Butterfly - Easy Emboss Resist Technique (Video Tutorial!)

I've been SO excited to share this card with you ever since I created it last week! 

This one made me do the Stamper's Happy Dance in the studio and all the stampers at card class this month loved it too! Yay! 

Here's a close up of the butterfly image:

Here's the whole card front:

Since I did a video tutorial on how to create this card - the link is below for you - I'm not gonna spell out details here for you. I did add a supply list at the bottom though so you can shop for what you need to re-create this beauty. 

Here's a look at the inside: 

I stamped the greeting from Vintage Verses (a Sale-A-Bration FREE stamp set) in Summer Starfruit ink. The little butterfly is punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch from the Spring mini using the same Designer Paper as the card front. (Sycamore Street - also a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice) It's sponged a little bit with Basic Gray ink and just adhered by the greeting.

Here's the video link:

  1. This is absolutely amazing. I can't wait to watch your tutorial. Thank you for generously sharing. I just taught a class yesterday using the Swallowtail. But this is a must try.

  2. I have to tell you this is the most amazing thing. It looks like a hologram. Beautiful. I may have to case this.

  3. Pretty darn amazing! At first I thought you had cut it out from another piece of DSP. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love this card and how the Swallowtail looks as if it coming right up off of the page! Thanks for sharing!

    1. This card is not "nice" or "pretty" it is "MARVELOUS"!!! What a wonderful idea and great video with TWO new card and ribbon techniques to put in my brain file. Thank you so much for sharing your creative talent and keep the ideas coming!

  5. Oh my gosh Robin, this is just gorgeous! Your video is so easy to follow, and this technique is SO cool! Thank you so much for sharing, I can't wait to make this myself! :)

  6. Robin this card is gorgeous! I may have to case it : )
