I've been playing around with the corset-lacing embelishing on books and boxes lately, and tranferred the idea to this card for a fun look. It's easy to acheive--just stamp your main image piece and then cut in in half--or in two-thirds as I did here, preferring not to bisect my butterfly!-- and then punch sets of two or three holes equally spaced on the meeting edge of both pieces.
TIP: Thread your laces through first before adhering the image pieces to the card, but don't tighten the laces or tie the bow. Once you have the laces threaded, adhere the image pieces down where you want, then tighten the laces, tie the bow and trim the ends off. Way easier trying to thread ribbon in those little holes when you can access both the front and back of the project.
I'll try to finish up the box I am working on so you can see the corset-lacing in action on that one, too!
If you're wondering, I stamped the Swallowtail Butterfly image in Versamark ink on Pool Party Core'dinations cardstock, then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I sponged around the image with Island Indigo ink to make the tone-on-tone embossing pop (the emboss-resist technique). I like that you can do subtle things with this butterfly as well as more flashy techniques. You can do it, too, and everything you need to make this card is available to order today in my online shopping site: www.lyssa.stampinup.net
