I love the intriguing stamping opportunity called "Twofer Card Challenge" which requires the use the exact same stamp or die to make two cards with distinctly different designs for two different occasions. The September Challenge is named "Critters" and I used a butterfly from a Cottage Cutz die as a focal point on my two cards. Before starting the cards, I cut several of the die images from black cardstock and then cut the butterfly from the sentiment. I glued orange vellum to the butterfly wings and trimmed it close.
Twofer Card Challenge- #20 Critters
My first card is a friendship card. I used two solid Posh Impression wood mount stamps and a few juicy ink pads to make the beautiful roses. After fussy-cutting the images, I added depth to the roses by shading the petals with Spectrum Noir markers. I created the lattice background using instructions on the Butterfly Challenge blog HERE. (I accidentally cut my paper strips a bit thicker, but I think they worked.) The sentiments (front and inside) are both from a Beccy’s Place digi set named “Spring Tulips.” Am entering this card into a few other challenges including Spectember Day 11- Try Something New. (I’ve never made a lattice card before… and was surprised how easy it is to do!)

My second card is a Happy Fall card created from an upcycled calendar page. The sentiment on the front of the card is from a We Are Three Digital Shop set named “Harvest.” The inside sentiment is a freebie from HERE.
