Swallowtail Note Card Set

I love how these turned out!  We made this Swallowtail Note Card set at my In-Color class last month.  I think this was one of my favorite projects and the perfect gift for someone.  I’m not sure why I waited so long to get the Swallowtail Stamp.  I know it is big and can be intimidating to use but it worked out so nicely for this project.


The set includes 5 notecards with the envelopes packaged inside a clear bag, tied with ribbon and finished with a cute tag.  Here are some close ups for you to get a better look at everything.

  • Don’t fold the note card until after you do the stamping.
  • Stamp the Swallowtail image in Versamark Ink and cover with Clear Embossing Powder.  Heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • use a Stampin’ Sponge and ink to sponge around the embossed image – I start in the center where I want it to be darker and then sponge in a circular motion out to the edge.  Repeat until the whole butterfly is covered – it pops right off the card!
  • Stamp a greeting on the bottom of the card.
  • Stamp a matching envelope – I use the smaller swallowtail image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.

After sliding all the card inside the bag.  Tie it shut with a piece of the Ruffled Ribbon and add a tag from the Chalk Talk set.
