Swallowtail Anniversary- Out of the box with Framelits

I've been busy the last few days getting ready for a craft show on Sunday.  It's a big weekend, as it's Canada's birthday so there should be lots of tourists around - well, hopefully anyway.

This is one of the cards I made for the occasion.  It features the Swallowtail stamp partially extended outside the framelit.  I used the tutorial from Splitcoaststampers here

Part of the image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento ink.  I then used an oval framelit and laid it over the image to determine where I would like to die cut it.  Then, following the tutorial, I cut out the image of the butterfly that would extend outside the oval die cut, and then die cut the oval. The oval was matted first with a Coastal Cabana oval, and then an oval die cut using Silver glimmer paper.
I coloured the image of the Swallowtail using Coastal Cabana blendabilities.

Stamps: Swallowtail, A Word for You (retired)
Inks: Black memento, Coastal Cabana blendabilities, Coastal Cabana ink
Papers: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Accessories: Just Saying' framelits, Oval framelits, Modern Mosaic folder, dimensionals
