A simple embossed butterfly card

Here’s a simple card I finished today.  I used the Hero Arts/Sizzix butterfly stamp and die set and embossed on top of the canvas for the butterfly.  The embossing added a bit of stability to the canvas but not enough for what I had in mind, so I spread a light coating of Glossy Accents on the back of the stamped canvas before die cutting.
