How to Make Embedded Butterflies

Sunflowers and Dragonflies, Embedded Butterflies, finished card

Hello friends.  It’s been ages since I posted a tutorial and I hope to start doing them regularly again.  I called this embedded butterflies because the butterflies look embedded in the background.  All of my stamps come from the Technique Junkies Stamps.  Although I use butterflies you can use any design at all.

Stamp out your small stamp image close to the top so that when you cut out the image, it will stick to the cardstock.
