Add DIMENSIONS with Stamps and Die Combo Set

Hello friends!
I know stamps and dies combo are costly...
so I always look for ways to stretch and fun and supplies!

Take Bamboo Rose Stamp and Coordinating Die as an example. 
Here is my previous post about using them to create a seamless focal point.

This time I did all the stamping in one and strategically planned my "object of affection"....namely, the butterfly.
you are in my thoughts

After stamping the floral background and flowers, I stamped the butterfly. Then I made the butterfly die cut and added a few diecut pieces for the extra dimension.

The great thing about this card is that it stays flat and requires few embellishment. The butterfly die IS the embellishment and adds the dimension.

you are in my thoughts-001
If you are contemplating the purchase of stamp and die combo, this may help you justify the cost. :)
Hope you are inspired by this idea and post.
Thanks for stopping by!
