A bunch of cards

Inspired by the formula of z-fold cards on the
Club Scrap Blog I made a few cards myself
with Club Scrap papers and Michael Strong's 
butterfly rubber stamp.

There are also some more instructions
with a video by Tricia HERE.
All the cards have Dutch sentiments this time. This one says:
Congratulations. The background papers are a sheet from 
the Papillon kit.

For the top two cards I used watercolor paper for the butterflies.

First I stamped and embossed the butterflies in gold.
Then i made a mix of distress ocide colors, added a few
drops of water and dipped the butterflies in the ink.
After cutting out the were glued to the cards with 
foam tape only on the body, leaving the wings loose.

Here you see the card colded in a z.
The are ease to send folded and fit into a normal envelop.

Thank you for looking,
stay safe and
keep crafting!
