Butterfly/Moth Father's Day Card

This is a Father's Day card I made for my father-in-law a couple years ago. He studies mites as a serious hobby, many of which are found on moths and butterflies (I wasn't about to put disgusting mites on my card!). I used some Tim Holtz products to make the card, including Distress Ink, Film Strip Ribbon, Tiny Attacher, and paper (I cut the small moth/butterfly images from one of his paper stashes). For the large butterfly, I stamped it with StazOn Jet Black ink onto a piece of recycled packaging then colored it from the back with Adirondack Alcohol Inks.

The background paper I made myself with my printer (OK, my card was a little late, thus the "belated"). I added the colors (Distress Ink applied with a Blending Tool) then distressed the paper by crumpling, ripping the edges, and adding some Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. I also used the blending tool to distress the envelope to match. Below is a different view showing more of the layers.
